Sponsorship of the Gambling & Betting Industry: Opportunities and Risks

In Austria, online gambling and betting providers licensed in EU member states invest around EUR 100 million annually in the Austrian sports and media landscape. The announced gambling reform puts these amounts at risk. What needs to change in order to be able to continue to support top-level and popular sports in the future? How is the issue handled in other EU member states? Christian Feichtinger (Managing Director, bet-at-home ICE Hockey League), Claus Retschitzegger (President, Austrian Betting and Gambling Association) and Stefan Sulzbacher (Speaker of the Board, Interwetten) discussed these questions together at the “Potentials and Risks” forum at SPORT & MARKE.
