Tuesday 7th August 2018 – To coincide with the start of the 2018/19 football season, leading online bookmaker Betway has partnered with the Professional Players Federation (PPF) to release a new series of short films highlighting key messages around betting integrity in sport.  The films have been produced in partnership with and are funded by Betway and the PPF’s other betting integrity partners.

Alongside bookmaker representatives, the series features contributions from various player associations, including the WPBSA, PFA, PCA and RPA, as well as sports integrity experts.

The films follow a Q&A format and are aimed at players focusing on a number of different topics around betting, match fixing and the passing of inside information.   They also demonstrate the close working relationship between the sports and betting industries in order to counter corruption and keep British sport clean, while maintaining its world leading reputation in sporting integrity.

PPF Chairman Brendon Batson OBE said: “Player associations do a great job in educating players about betting integrity and these new films are designed to complement this education by giving bite size information and advice for players who may either want to learn more or seek support from their player association.  We are grateful to Betway and our other betting integrity partners for their funding of player education in this area.”

Anthony Werkman CEO of Betway said: “Our support of the Professional Players Federation is an extremely important part of our wider work in the areas of sporting integrity and player education around gambling.  Our aims dovetail with that of the PPF in that we want a clean, competitive and ultimately fun environment for our customers to test their knowledge against. To our mind these videos will help ensure that both players and the customers of Betway continue to compete and play solely for the love of the game.”

The films are available to view on the PPF Youtube channel and are available to all PPF members to use online or in more formal education settings.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Patrick Svensk, Chairman of the Board of Betsson AB (publ), has informed the Nomination Committee that he is resigning from Betsson’s Board of Directors and the assignment as Chairman with immediate effect. The Board has appointed Johan Lundberg, currently a member of Betsson’s Board, as the new Chairman.

Patrick Svensk has been a member of Betsson’s Board of Directors since 2005, and Chairman of the Board since 2017. The decision to resign from Betsson’s Board of Directors is based on the fact that the company’s major shareholders have stated that they no longer have full confidence in Patrick Svensk as Chairman of the Board. The lack of full trust is due to how the dismissal of the CEO was handled, which the company communicated in a press release on September 17, 2021.

“It is very sad, and I am sorry that I have disappointed our major owners, but I have done what I thought was best for the company. I am proud of what we have achieved during these years and wish everyone at Betsson great luck in the future,” Patrick Svensk said.

Johan Lundberg, who has been appointed as new Chairman by the Board, has been a member of Betsson’s Board since 2018. Johan Lundberg is the founder of NFT Ventures and a Board Member of Loomis, Svolder and Ölands Bank.

“I would like to extend a warm thank you to Patrick Svensk for his valuable contributions to the Board for almost 17 years. I look forward to continuing the work with the rest of the board to recruit the next generation of international leader to Betsson and at the same time complete the strategic work that is going on with renewal and growth,” Johan Lundberg said.

The Chairman of the Nomination Committee Michael Knutsson has expressed full confidence and support for the remaining Board members and its election of a new Chairman and supports the decision to seek the next generation of international leader for Betsson.
