Italian Serie A League asks to MEF and Agcom about the ban for gambling sponsorship and advertisement

The ban of sponsorship and advertisement for the gambling operators is worrying football clubs and the Serie A League sent an official letter to MEF and Agcom to ask for explanations about the next steps. Last July the Italian government launched a new law that banned any gambling advertisement from July 2019 and any gambling sponsorship from January 1st 2019. The question is if the exception for the existing gambling advertisement deals can be valid for the sponsorship too.  In a few days MEF and Agcom will answer to the League. lp/AGIMEG
