Pga Tour Sponsorship Right Will Be Provided By Casino Operators
The organizer of men’s professional golf tournaments pga tour showed condescension regarding sponsorship rules. Now gambling operators can officially be considered as marketing partners (omp) in all six competitions.
According to the new rules, players can sponsor to bookmakers that will be allowed to place their logos on golfers’ clothing. Changes have already entered into force.
A distinctive feature of innovations is that only experienceed bookmakers and casino operators are allowed to sponsorship, which specialize not only at the sports betting. For example, companies such as william hill and bet365 will not be allowed to provide sponsorship.
Senior vice president of pga tour andy levinson said: «we understood that it was necessary to adjust our sponsorship policies in accordance with the attitude of society to gambling. Sponsored casino relations and companies dealing with daily fantasy sports will be resolved. Any relations should contribute to responsible games and comply with the efforts to ensure the honest tour».
Recall that pga tour supports the idea of distributing sports betting in the united states.
