Soccer betting is banned in England but not for club owners

Earlier on April of 2017, it was announced that Joey Barton was banned from playing competitive football due some of his actions that the English player committed involving betting on over 1,100 matches. Joey Barton was also fined with a fee of £30,000.

Louisa Fyans is a spokeswoman for the Football Association and she revealed details concerning the separate set of rules that club owners have when it comes to betting in the sport as she said: Read more »
