Cardiff City FC forced to remove online gambling company 777ball sponsor from shirt
Football club, Cardiff City, were told to remove their sponsor’s logo from their kit just hours before they met with Reading last night.
The clubs sponsor, online gambling company “777ball”, are reportedly not on the European “White List” which allows them to advertise in the UK so the logo had to be removed instantly.
A Cardiff City spokesman said “We agreed to take the logo off for the match at Reading and now we wait for things to be sorted out. It seems unlikely that will happen before Saturday’s home match against Queens Park Rangers, but there is no danger with the sponsorship and the 777ball logo will be back on the shirts as soon as their licence is granted.”
777ball are a Phillipines based company but have not requested to be added to the European White List which would enable them to advertise.
Representatives from 777ball have said that they will work until the license is agreed so they can continue the sponsorship deal with Cardiff City.
