UK gaming exclusion service Gamstop has announced that they're launching a new self-exclusion awareness campaign in the UK and are partnering with various sports clubs to push the initiative.
The campaign will use the hashtag #TakeBackControl2022 to promote the initiative, which will see players able to use Gamstop to self-exclude themselves from gaming services. Gamstop is working with the Professional Players Federation, Professional Cricket Association, Luton Town FC, Walsall FC, Olham Athletic, and Sutton United, and Crystal Palace FC.
Gamstop is working to get the word out on self-exclusion ahead of the World Cup, which begins in November. The company announced that they've had 300,000 people self-exclude from the service since it first launched the operation in 2018.
Regarding the launch Gamstop CEO Fiona Palmer said, "We are very grateful to all our partners who took part with us on social media to support the campaign, using the #TakeBackControl2022 hashtag.
"By sharing information about GAMSTOP with their followers they have helped us to educate new audiences about self-exclusion and where people can get help if they need it."
