Blackpool Football Club and their Principal Partners, LeoVegas, are taking a proactive stance in promoting responsible and safer gambling during Saturday's home fixture against Shrewsbury Town. This collaborative effort aims to raise awareness and highlight the importance of gambling responsibly.
Blackpool FC and LeoVegas Team Up
For this weekend's fixture, LeoVegas has generously donated their regular branding space on the front of all home shirts to display key messaging and logos associated with Safer Gambling Week.

Responsible gaming is at the heart of our offering at LeoVegas. We are incredibly proud to work with Blackpool and to make sure all fans understand the range of tools we have on offer to ensure our players keep their play safe.
Safer Gambling Week holds great importance in the calendar, and LeoVegas's decision to replace their logo on the front of the shirt with Safer Gambling Week branding underscores their commitment to responsible gaming.
Jonty Castle, Blackpool FC Chief Operating Officer, spoke about the joint effort to raise awareness:
Safer Gambling Week is an important nationwide initiative, which both ourselves at the football club and LeoVegas wanted to bring to the forefront of people's thinking this weekend. Raising awareness of the importance of safer gambling is vital.

This comprehensive approach ensures that the message of Safer Gambling Week reaches as many people as possible.
