Liverpool quietly suspend ties with 1xBet under pressure from government gambling body

The Reds’ long-term deal with the Cypriot-based, Russian-owned agency met with widespread criticism from supporters in July – 1xBet promoted gambling on children’s sports and cockfighting, among other offences. Liverpool and Chelsea were warned of “unlimited fines and up to 51 weeks’ imprisonment”; after termination of Tottenham‘s deal, both were “forced to suspend all advertising” for 1xBet.
