Hull fans warn Allam over ballot

Posted on by

first_img “We feel we have been prejudiced right from the outset. The FA introduced a new policy to handle our application on the back of consultations with the City Till We Die group, and we therefore feel that our application was already pre-judged. “This feeling has been reinforced with yesterday’s announcement, as the club feels this will further prejudice the forthcoming ballot of season pass holders. “However, this is now the time for the silent majority to come forward and support the club’s aspirations. Details of the ballot will be released to season pass holders within the next 48 hours.” Gretton was puzzled by the reaction, but heartened by the club’s apparent failure to make its case with the FA. He said: “I honestly don’t know why they would say that. It’s a very odd thing to say because as I understand it, there’s been no decision made yet. “There’s been a recommendation which has to be ratified by the FA, so it does seem tactically a very odd thing to do, to accuse the FA when they is still a decision to be made.” Allam has threatened to walk away from the KC Stadium if he does not get his way. However, members of the fans’ group are convinced there is a way forward. Gretton said: “We have been broadly happy with what’s happened under the Allams’ ownership of the club and we would like this to be finished. That’s why we welcome a season ticket holders’ poll. “If we can get a popular vote against the name change, we are not going to crow about it – we have no need to. “Hopefully, he would just abandon the plan and we could say ‘well done for being the bigger man’. We’d be delighted about that and we could start afresh.” Meanwhile, Tigers striker George Boyd has been charged with misconduct by the FA for allegedly spitting at Manchester City keeper Joe Hart. Boyd has until 6pm on Wednesday to respond to the charge. The club’s owners levelled the accusation at the FA in a statement released on Tuesday, 24 hours after it was revealed the FA’s membership committee had recommended rejection of an application to rename the club ‘Hull Tigers’. A decision will be made at a meeting of the FA’s Full Council on April 9, but Allam has vowed to put the matter to season pass holders in the hope of backing his proposal with a resounding ‘yes’ vote. Press Association However, the City Till We Die campaign group is convinced supporters, many of whom have reacted angrily to the move to alter the club’s name after 110 years, will not give him what he wants. Spokesperson Mark Gretton told Press Association Sport: “There have been so many polls and every one of them has voted against a name-change. “Every reputable poll that has been done, whether by a fans’ group, the Hull Daily Mail or the official supporters’ club, they have all voted against a name-change. “That said, asking the fans is a good idea. We suggested this back in November. “We wrote to him (Allam) about it, but he ignored us and in the press, that was when he started with his ‘no one tells me how to run my companies’. “We assumed he’d gone quiet on this. That would have been a very sensible thing to do back then so whatever the result, the pass holders can have a say in this decision.” City’s statement confirmed that pass holders will be balloted on the matter, which Allam believes is vital if he is to make the club more marketable, with details of the vote due to be released within 48 hours. The statement said: “The club is disappointed with the timing of yesterday’s announcement made by The FA. Hull supporters have warned owner Assem Allam not to bank on season ticket holders voting for his proposed name-change after City accused the Football Association of being prejudiced in its dealings. last_img read more

David Clifton: Licensing Expert – Time to start a constructive gambling marketing & advertising debate?

Posted on by

first_img UKGC launches fourth National Lottery licence competition August 28, 2020 Share Submit Share UKGC hails ‘delivered efficiencies’ of its revamped licence maintenance service  August 20, 2020 David CliftonThe UK Gambling Commission’s Programme Director for Consumer Protection & Empowerment, Ian Angus, has recently made a speech in which he called for “a proper and constructive debate about gambling marketing and advertising, including sponsorship arrangements in sport”.His speech included the following stark message to holders of operating licences granted by the Commission: “My advice to you is this: a storm is gathering, but it can be avoided. Learn from the mistakes of the past – listen to what the public is saying and put responsible advertising standards at the very heart of your business. Don’t wait for the storm clouds to burst and precautionary measures to be triggered. Step up now and own this.”There will undoubtedly be readers of this article who will take the view that the majority of gambling operators comply with the applicable advertising codes and conduct their marketing activities in a socially responsible manner that fully complies with all legal and regulatory requirements. I agree with that.There will be some who additionally take the view that Ian Angus’s comments represent a considerable over-statement of the severity of the position. I don’t agree with that. Such a view ignores public sentiment that has become ever more negative over the last year. The easy response is to blame sensationalist adverse media reports, but that ignores how bombarded with, and pestered by, gambling advertisements – particularly for football betting – many people feel.Again to quote Ian Angus: “At a time when consumer trust in gambling is at an all-time low, it would be unwise for the industry to ignore the hardening public and political mood around advertising. For some, it’s a moral reaction; for others, it’s an irritant – “stop bombarding me with gambling ads!” – but for many, including a growing number of researchers and academics, it reflects a genuine concern about the unknown impacts of children’s exposure to gambling advertising and sports sponsorship”.A quick bit of legislative history Once upon a time, as a matter of UK government policy, the advertising of gambling products was tightly restricted as part of an overall desire not to stimulate demand and different rules applied to different sectors of the gambling industry. For example, betting shops were only allowed to advertise in “material form” (such as newspapers, journals and posters etc.) and were banned from advertising on radio or television. That was a long time ago now. The legislation in place at that time was not designed for online advertising, let alone online gambling.A quick bit of current lawThe Gambling Act 2005 provides a very broad definition of “advertising”, covering anything that is done to encourage or facilitate people to take advantage of (or intending to increase the use of) facilities for gambling, including entering sponsorship or brand-sharing agreements.Gambling advertising issues in the last 12 monthsI set out below a summary of what has happened on the gambling advertising front within the last year or so alone, most of which featured in Ian Angus’s speech:Setting the scene for a lot of what was to follow, a House of Lords debate expressed considerable concern about the effect of gambling advertisements on childrenSky Betting & Gaming set the trend by becoming the first operator to announce the closure of its affiliate marketing programme, citing“growing regulatory requirements”, a move followed subsequently by othersAt the same time, the Advertising Standards Authority (“ASA”) upheld complaints against four online gambling companies for shockingly irresponsible adverts published by an affiliate suggesting that gambling could provide an escape from personal problems such as cancer-related depression and that it could be a solution to financial concernsNot surprisingly, just a few months later, the Information Commissioner’s Office (“ICO”) reported that a global intelligence-gathering operation found that the affiliate marketing industry generally has significant compliance issues to overcomeNational newspaper allegations were made that cartoon characters are exposing children to online gambling, resulting in unprecedented joint action by regulators (and the Remote Gambling Association) to prevent gambling ads appealing to childrenThis was followed with yet further adverse media publicity on the promotion of gambling to children and young persons, a subject that hit the headlines again in May with adverse ASA rulingsThe Gambling Commission imposed a penalty package of £100,000 on Broadway Gaming Limited for failing to include significant terms linked to promotional advertisements on five of its gambling websitesThis was followed by new Committee of Advertising Practice standards on ‘free’ bets and bonuses introduced with immediate effect in February, coinciding with the Competition and Markets Authority ordering online gambling operators to stop unfair bonus promotionsOne month later, Sky Betting & Gaming was required to pay over £1million for social responsibility failings, that included about 50,000 self-excluded customers receiving marketing material by email, mobile text or a push notification within a mobile appThis was followed by tougher standards on gambling advertising coming into effect on 2 April 2018, restricting ads that create an inappropriate sense of urgency like those including“Bet Now!” offers during live events The Gambling Commission’s GDPR Information Note published that same month referred to its, and the ICO’s, concern about the volume of unsolicited direct e-marketing received by consumers (predominantly via email and SMS) for gambling products Related Articles StumbleUpon Winning Post: Swedish regulator pushes back on ‘Storebror’ approach to deposit limits August 24, 2020 In May, LeoVegas incurred a £627,000 penalty package for issuing 41 misleading advertisements and for self-exclusion failings, that included sending marketing material to 1,894 people who had previously self-excludedThe Gambling Commission warned of a ‘relentless escalation’ in financial penalties for compliance failings shortly after publishing its enforcement report for 2017-18, listing marketing and advertising by gambling operators in its top six regulatory concernsNevertheless, the passing months saw a mounting number of adverse ASA rulings against gambling operatorsIn September, BBC’s ‘5 Live investigates’ transmitted a radio programme entitled “Children Targeted by Gambling Ads” after its researchers discovered that 15 football clubs in the Premier League, the Championship, League One and the Scottish Professional Football League were in breach of the advertising rules by promoting gambling ads on the junior pages of their club websitesLittle surprise that, at about the same time, the Gambling Commission published its advertising and sponsorship rules reminder ahead of the imminent changes to its Licence Conditions and Codes of Practice that mean that, with effect from 31 October, gambling operators who breach advertising rules or consumer law will face tougher enforcement actionAlso last month, the Labour Party announced its plans for a radical overhaul of gambling regulation and advertising, plans that seem to be attracting support in sections of the Conservative Party tooIn the last few days, penalty packages totalling nearly £2.8million have been incurred by the Rank Group, independent bookmaker Mark Jarvis and Paddy Power Betfair for, amongst other things, customer interaction failings, that sends a clear message to the gambling industry that the Gambling Commission will continue to come down hard on operators who do not take the required steps to stop harmful gambling by customers to whom they market their services.The debateSo what should be discussed as part of the debate about gambling marketing and advertising, including sponsorship arrangements in sport? I list below some suggestions:In Australia, bans on gambling advertising during broadcasts and online streaming of live sport between 5 am and 8.30 pm have been introduced. Is this, or an alternative pre-watershed ban, a model that should be followed in the UK?It has been reported that the Spanish government’s 2019 budget announcement is expected to include advertising restrictions for licensed gambling. Will they follow Italy’s blanket ban on gambling advertising across all media platforms (including sponsorship of sports clubs by gambling operators), due to take effect from 1 January 2019? Is the situation so dire in the UK that a similar ban should be imposed here?In light of the above, is the Labour Party’s proposed “whistle-to-whistle” ban on gambling adverts being shown during a specified time before, during and after a live sporting event an acceptable compromise?Alternatively, can all sectors of the UK’s gambling industry come together sufficiently quickly to agree an even tighter Gambling Industry Code for Socially Responsible Gambling before much harsher mandatory restrictions are imposed on them?Should such a revised code include the prohibition of gambling advertising within sports grounds (pitch-side and otherwise) and in their immediate vicinity?Should the fact that betting is regarded as merely part of the normal enjoyment of sport override concerns that betting advertising normalises gambling for children?To what extent can gambling advertising overcome the “normalisation” criticism, taking into account the very recently published CAP/BCAP explanatory document on that subject?Are there any acceptable compromises to avoid a potential complete ban on British sports clubs’ shirt sponsorship by gambling companies including, for example, prohibiting their logos or other promotional material from appearing on any commercial merchandising, rather than merely on replica kits and other merchandise that is designed for use by children?Is it already too late now for an affiliates’ trade association to be set up requiring compliance with a minimum set of advertising and marketing standards for membership, although, of itself, that would not absolve gambling operators from liability for their affiliates’ failings (and would it make any difference anyway)?Is it only tougher penalties for breaching the UK Advertising Codes, the GDPR rules on marketing consent or consumer law that will bring about the change in approach gambling advertising the Gambling Commission is calling for?Should any further action await further research on the effects of gambling marketing and advertising on children, young people and vulnerable adults?Should the UK gambling industry “swallow the bullet” (mixing of metaphors intended) and voluntarily accept the Labour Party’s proposal fora compulsory levy on gambling operators of 1% of gross gambling yield and, if so, should it be on condition that it has a greater say in what research, education and treatment of problem gambling takes place?These are not proposals. They are merely ideas and, with Responsible Gambling Week almost upon us, what better time to start the debate?On that front, I will leave the final words to Ian Angus, again from his recent speech: “Advertising is the lens through which consumers and the wider public judge you, your brand and the wider industry. It’s the first thing they see or hear; and first impressions matter. The decline in public trust and confidence reflects badly on us all – and it needs to be reversed”.___________________________David Clifton – Director – ‎Clifton Davies Consultancy Limitedlast_img read more
