Scottish Supporters Network announce partnership with Fansbet

Date: 4th August 2018

We are delighted to announce the partnership with Fansbet, the one of a kind betting platform which shares their net profits with the fan community. The Scottish Supporters Network and Fansbet share the same values around the empowerment of fans, and we are excited about what we can achieve together.

Fansbet was founded by match-going football fans, it is operated in the UK and beyond and the whole approach is about fans, of all clubs across all sports. They have committed to sharing 50% of net profit from players who can choose an established group in the football supporting community to be the beneficiary for causes that matter to them the most. They recognise that sometimes a person’s loyalty to a sport or a team they love can go unrewarded and they want to give them a chance to feel differently. Whether the cause be ownership, tickets, travel or something more diverse or community based they want to give to fan partners the opportunity to make a difference and feel good about doing so.

At the Scottish Supporters Network we are acutely aware of the need for responsible gambling, and we were hugely impressed with the approach taken by Fansbet towards this. This is a business that already has many facilities to help players enjoy responsible gaming and they take their regulatory responsibilities very seriously. In addition, we have selected GamCare as our recommended support service for the prevention and treatment of problem gambling. GamCare operate the National Gambling Helpline, provide treatment for problem gamblers and their families, create awareness about responsible gambling and treatment, and encourage an effective approach to responsible gambling within the gambling industry.

Fan culture and the match day experience matters to us and our partnership will help to make a difference to so many. We are looking forward to a long and successful partnership together.
