FA to ban all gambling in football

The Football Association is set to impose a blanket ban on all gambling within the game of football following several high-profile cases, according to Sky Sports.

The new FA proposal would see that anyone employed within the top eight tiers of English football from betting.


The proposal comes after the sacking of Tranmere’s Ronnie Moore after admitting a breach of regulations and now awaits judgement, following the FA Council’s passing of the new regulations.


"The FA has proposed that from next season, participants at Step 4 and above of the English league system will be banned from betting, either directly or indirectly, on any football match or competition anywhere in the world,” read a statement from the FA.


"The changes to FA rules from the start of the 2014/15 season would also see a worldwide prohibition on betting on any other football-related matter, for example, the transfer of players, employment of managers or team selection.


"The passing of inside information to somebody that uses the information for betting remains prohibited."


In addition to 61-year-old Moore, several Premier League players have found themselves in trouble with the current regulations, including Tottenham star Andros Townsend, Stoke’s Cameron Jerome and Newcastle midfielder Dan Gosling.


So far this season, five players have denied charges of match-fixing and as many as 13 current and former players have been arrested as the FA stamps down on gambling.
