Watford back BetRegret campaign

Watford FC are the latest club to publicly support the work of the FSA and BeGambleAware around safer gambling.

The Hertfordshire club announced yesterday they will be promoting the the Bet Regret campaign across Vicarage Road and the club’s communication channels.

With the support of the main sponsor Sportsbet.io, Watford say they are committed to raising awareness among their supporters about the risks of impulsive betting and helping them recognise gambling behaviours that can escalate.

“It’s absolutely right that we help create a safer gambling environment for everyone,” said Dave Messenger, Watford’s supporter liaison officer. “Gambling is a pastime enjoyed responsibly by many and we have a unique position in our community to help get messages about responsible gambling across.”

The FSA and BeGambleAware have been promoting the Bet Regret campaign all season, and recently launched the Safer Gambling Hub. The Hub provides a range of digital resources to clubs and supporter groups to help them promote safer gambling.

FSA deputy chief executive Dave Rose said: “Supporter groups have real concerns about harmful betting and impulsive gambling behaviours among some football fans.
“We’ll be helping fans across the country get the safer gambling message out there and we’re delighted to have Watford’s support for our campaign.
