Today the English Football Association fined football team Newcastle United £7,500 for allowing betting group Fun88's logo to be placed on the youth team's shirts.
By law, gambling groups and alcohol firms are not allowed to not allowed be featured on the shirts of youth teams. Newcastle allowed the Fun88 logo to be featured, and is now paying the price. The two groups signed a three year shirt sponsorship deal last year. Newcastle took the logo off the kid shirts after they were caught with their hand in the cookie jar earlier this year.
No comment from either party was available as of press time, although it's likely we'll hear something coming down the pike given the publicity that the story has generated thus far.
