Joey Barton has FA ban for breaching betting rules reduced

first_img English football suspension extended until 30 April  March 19, 2020 StumbleUpon Submit Share Premier League looks to broadcast every behind-closed-door fixture August 28, 2020 Related Articles Upon appeal, the ban of former England international and Premier League footballer, Joey Barton has been reduced by five months.  Barton was punished by The FA for breaching betting and player conduct rules on 1,260 bets on matches between 26 March 2006 and 13 May 2016.  The former Burnley midfielder appealed against the length of the ban, describing it as ‘excessive.’ The appeal board of the FA agreed with Barton and shortened the ban which was due to end on 25 October 2018, but will now end on 1 June 2018.The report by the FA, said the ban now “reflects the overall seriousness of the breaches and also the mitigation including the full extent of Mr Barton’s addiction.”Barton, who was released by Burnley in May was given a one match ban by the Scottish FA in November 2016, whilst playing for Rangers, also for breaching gambling rules. Last April the footballer announced on his personal website, that the length of the FAhas “effectively forced me into an early retirement.”Barton revealed on Twitter that he was also due to play in a charity match for victims of the Grenfell Tower tragedy, however, as it is an FA sanctioned match his ban will inhibit him from playing any part in the game.

Where sports meet esports: Introducing the ESI Super Forum at #bofcon2018

first_img StumbleUpon SBC Magazine Issue 10: Kaizen Gaming rebrand and focus for William Hill CEO August 25, 2020 Submit SBC Global and Esports Insider have teased the launch of the ESI Super Forum for next year’s Betting on Football conference at Stamford Bridge (20-23 March).Following on from the success of the Esports Insider Forum Series, held at Fnatic’s Bunkr between July and October, the ESI Super Forum has been confirmed as a stand alone event for the second full day of #bofcon2018 (Thursday 22 March).It has been designed to provide a thorough explanation of the opportunities and challenges that exist within the worlds of traditional sports and esports, as the two become increasingly intertwined. The agenda will not be confined to gambling, with panel discussions and workshops covering whether an esports team is a worthy investment, why and how sports clubs should get involved, the Olympic debate, case studies of the Overwatch League, sponsorships and plenty more. Overall, there will be six panels and workshops comprising more than 30 experts in the space, while there will also be an esports business exhibition zone, meeting rooms, tournaments and plenty of opportunity to network throughout the day and into the evening at the event’s official closing party at Under the Bridge.This conference’s focus on the convergence of traditional sports stakeholders and esports comes at a pivotal time. We’re seeing evermore team owners and players from the worlds of the NBA, the NFL, the NHL, football, and more entering the space, from securing stakes or outright buying teams and franchises in leagues to launching their own companies. This week for instance there was news of the Gerard Piqué backed signing a partnership with Konami. We can take the Overwatch League as an example of this sports meets esports phenomenon too; of its twelve franchises, eight of them have ties to traditional sports team owners or players. New York Mets co-owner Fred Wilpon is tied to Houston Outlaws, Los Angeles Gladiators are owned by the Kroenke Group, which has stakes in Arsenal FC, the LA Rams and four Colorado teams, while their neighbouring side Los Angeles Valiant is owned by the Immortals organisation which has seen investment from the co-owner of the Memphis Grizzlies. Finally, The Anschutz Group is involved in LA Galaxy, LA Kings and the LA Lakers.There are plenty more ties between major sports clubs and their owners in both the Overwatch League, for which franchise slots have reportedly cost upwards of $20m (£15.2m), and elsewhere in teams across League of Legends, Dota 2, CS:GO, Rocket League, FIFA and other titles. Undoubtedly, esports organisations could learn something from the business models and organisational structures in sports which have lasted the test of time and found ever more inventive ways of monetising, whilst these same clubs and sports bodies would do well to take a note out of some of their esports counterparts when it comes to new ideas and fan engagement. One of four packed-out ESI Forum Series events looked at the opportunity for football clubs specifically in esports, and why they’re entering. The session saw VfL Wolfsburg FIFA pro David Bytheway, Fnatic CEO Wouter Sleijffers and Sky Sports commentator Gary Taphouse discuss the topic, with the key takeaway being that there are far more rewarding opportunities for teams should they venture beyond the realms of just FIFA.There’ll be plenty more in-depth insight for both those in and around esports at the ESI Super Forum, and any stakeholders from the sporting world who are considering making the leap, or indeed are already involved in the world of esports, should find it an exceptional opportunity to learn and make some strong contacts whilst doing so. Sam Cooke, Editor-in-Chief at  Esports Insider, commented: “We received some great feedback from the ESI Forum Series, where we tackled topics including football clubs entering esports, the challenges and opportunities of esports betting, merchandise and apparel and a look at sponsorships more broadly. “With the ESI Super Forum we’ll be building on this, and focusing the event on a key area which we feel has not been amply attended to in the esports conference space – that is the where traditional sports and esports meet.“As with our Forum series, we’ll provide a place to educate people on both sides, generate some ideas and discussion, give all attendees plenty of networking time and ensure everyone has a fun day whilst doing so. In order to ensure this happens, we’ll have esports tournaments, food throughout the day, London’s best coffee and a tiptop official closing party to round it all off!”Those attending Betting on Football 2018 will gain full access to the ESI Super Forum on Thursday March 22nd (10-6pm) and the shared after party (7.30pm till late). For those solely interested in the ESI Super Forum, you can head here for more information and to secure tickets. Anyone with any questions about the event, or for those interested in sponsorship and exhibitor opportunities, please contact Sam Cooke on [email protected] get tickets and further information about the event, visit the website HERE.

Sportradar sends a message about protecting its tennis data

first_imgShare Submit David Lampitt, Sportradar: F1 presents betting’s most sizeable opportunity August 14, 2020 Sportradar has sent a message that it is prepared to protect its data rights and willing to go to some lengths to make sure that the work the firm puts into its data business is not undervalued. To that end, it has now announced it has agreed a settlement with BetConstruct and two unnamed bookmakers regarding its database rights.Sportradar believes that the specialist collection, management and distribution of sports data is core to its business. In a statement, it said: “The Sportradar group of companies have together invested a great deal of time, energy and resource into the creation and management of proprietary databases of sports data, often in partnership with national and international rights holders such as the International Tennis Federation (the ITF), the international governing body of tennis.”Sportradar revealed that it has recently settled legal proceedings issued in the High Court in London on 29 September 2017 against BetConstruct and two bookmakers in relation to their use of live tennis data from ITF events and tournaments, which was not licensed by Sportradar or the ITF.The parties have now reached a confidential agreement to resolve all claims involving historic use of ITF live data, with BetConstruct paying Sportradar an undisclosed monetary sum and agreeing to take a licence from Sportradar in relation to data from the ITF database going forward with the right to grant sub-licences to the two bookmakers to use the data.The company said: “By issuing proceedings, Sportradar has underlined its firm belief in the central importance and value of databases, and the database right, to this industry, and as a global data and content business it will take all necessary and available steps, in any jurisdiction, to protect its database rights against unauthorised use.“The agreement reached also demonstrates that all parties to the proceedings are firmly committed to the integrity of the sports betting ecosystem, and that BetConstruct and the two bookmakers support Sportradar’s desire to enable fans to enjoy sports betting in a safe and quality assured environment.”The agreement comes as the sport of tennis is taking a closer look at the use of its data as part of its review into its integrity problems. One of the solutions suggested in a recent report is the limiting of live data on matches for the betting industry although such an approach seems likely to receive opposition from a range of stakeholders.

In a chat with Paul Graham from Mark Jarvis Racing, he told SBC that the FOBT ruling has been tough on independent bookmakers, but that he hopes the new partnership with FSB will help grow Mark Jarvis’ online presence.SBC: The FOBT ruling came in place a few months back, and we’ve seen a number of the larger bookmakers implement cuts / closing stores to offset the impact – what has been the effect on independent bookmakers?Paul Graham: The impact to independent bookmakers has been hard. This is a difficult time for the industry and we still probably do not yet know the full impact of the decision. Without a doubt, shops are closing because of it and people will lose their jobs.  As a company we have adapted as quickly and best we could given the unexpected acceleration of the implementation of the stakes cut. With our new website we are also adapting a model of assigning revenue back to shops. This is something other bookmakers do not do. They push online hard because the overheads are cheaper. We are trying to tie online and our retail estate together as much as possible as they are both as equally important in delivering the service our customers deserve.SBC: How important has it been to secure this digital upgrade partnership with FSB? And what are your hopes for this relationship in the future?PG: We reviewed many suppliers before deciding to go with FSB. They have a great platform to build our digital ambitions on. The tech is right and the people are right. Mark Jarvis is a company with a long, respected heritage on the local High Street, being founded more than 55 years ago.  FSB is a fast paced technology company. This actually makes us the perfect partners, bringing together our vast industry experience coupled with their cutting edge technology. The size of our businesses means we can move extremely quickly to adopt and try new features that other companies simply cannot implement at the same speed and smaller companies cannot support. The winners will be our customers as they benefit from both innovation and customer service that is second to none. Our customers are loyal to our brand because they know what to expect: first class service from knowledgeable sports enthusiasts. We can now deliver the same with our digital presence. Offering a refreshingly customer centric experience to people that want to enjoy fun sports betting, but not limited to our shops geographical spread. Our totally UK based Customer Service Team are there to help too.SBC: Customers are tending to shift more towards a mobile-first approach to betting – how does Mark Jarvis plan to capitalise on this?PG: Mobile betting has transformed this industry. The ease of placing a bet from virtually anywhere is great for customers and a challenge that all retail betting shops have to adapt to. We are embracing this and will soon be launching the new FSB Android and iOS sports betting apps, but we are also building a firm bridge between digital and retail. Our shops are a place to watch sports, have a chat with a member of staff that knows you by first name and will make you a cuppa. We want you to pop in and say Hi. Customer service and relationships with customers is not dead at Mark Jarvis. We are not a faceless internet only company or Plc keeping shareholders happy. We will not employ chat bots on our new website at you deal with someone, it will be one of our employees.  If you place a bet over the counter or on your phone, our number one goal is that you do so with us because our brand matters.
