Premier League wants betting firm sponsors out - report

The English Premier League wants football clubs to remove gambling companies' logos from their shirts by the 2024-25 season, Sky News reported on Monday.

The league wants to take steps before the United Kingdom's government makes its own moves on the matter, considering that there is a lot of political interest in the subject. The authorities are reportedly willing to negotiate an agreement with the league.

Fourteen of 20 clubs would have to vote in favor of such a proposal for it to pass, and almost half of the teams had betting firms as sponsors the previous season.
