Amateur side Headingley AFC believe they are about to become the first English club with a shirt sponsor warning of the dangers of gambling.

Recommended Posts

The shirts will feature a 'Gambling With Lives' logo in memory of former Headingley player Lewis Keogh, who took his own life aged 34 in 2013, having run up gambling debts of £50,000.

It is just a matter of time before the shirt sponsors and billboards go but it won't be anytime soon I don't think

I have seen a lot of these fan football channels pushing gambling on their viewers most of which are kids or teenagers, football index being one example where you can buy and trade players for real cash
