Banned From 2026, But at Least 7 Premier League Teams Have Betting Main Kit Sponsor in 23-24 Season
In April 2023, Premier League have decided to ban betting front-of-shirt sponsors from 2026. However, this does not stop teams to get in the maximum money from betting main sponsors before the ban comes into effect.
Betting Sponsors in 23-24 Premier League Season
Seven Premier League teams are having betting main kit sponsors in the 23-24 season. In addition, all Premier League teams have betting partners.
Interestingly, no company is on the front of two teams in the 23-24 Premier League season. The betting sponsors are also mainly "unknown" betting companies, with the exception of Betway x West Ham.
Chelsea were rumored to sign with Stake, Nottingham have no sponsor yet.
However, change is on the horizon, but only a light one. Premier League clubs have agreed to ban match-day front-of-shirt sponsorship deals with gambling companies from the summer of 2026, following similar bans in Serie A and La Liga.
Despite this, some feel that the ban doesn't go far enough, and that there should be a complete prohibition on gambling sponsorship in football. Currently, Chelsea, Nottingham, and Sheffield United are the only Premier League teams without a main sponsor, and could still sign with a betting company.
