Financial help will support and encourage British breeders for the next 3 years

 

22 February, 2018 – SIS (Sports Information Services), a leading live pictures and data supplier, has agreed to provide funding over the next three years to the British Greyhound Breeders Forum (BGBF).

The long-term funding will allow the BGBF to achieve their ambition of staging a series of Category 1 and Category 2 competitions across a variety of distances for British Bred greyhounds, supported by the tracks, the BGRF and now by SIS.

Gordon Bissett, Greyhound Operations Manager at SIS, said: “We are pleased to be supporting and encouraging British breeding for the next three years with our partnership with the BGBF. Not every pup bred can be as good as King Elvis, who swept all before him in 2017, but by encouraging British bred competition, more dogs of that ability may be bred.

The proposal from John Marriott to SIS was to provide sufficient long-term funding to permit a series of competitions across different distances and tracks over the period to encourage British breeders. If there are British bred competitions in place for the next three years, then there is a focus and a target for the pups that are bred here in the U.K.

John Marriott, Chairman of BGBF, said: “I’m thankful to SIS for providing us with long term funding to enable us to continue to encourage and support British breeders. We hope that other sponsors may also come forward to offer further support.

As a consequence of having certainty about funding we are now able to confirm, and indeed expand, our range of competitions. In 2018 we shall be including a new Category 2 sprint competition at Harlow, with details due to be published very shortly in the calendar.

Breaking News: Dutch Senate votes to legalize online gambling

The Netherlands Senate voted today in favor of the country’s long-awaited online gaming legislation, which was approved by the House of Representatives back in 2014.

The new regulatory regime will allow operators to secure online sports betting and casino gaming licenses to serve Dutch consumers, subject to secondary legislation that is yet to be submitted for European Commission approval.

Today, the Dutch Senate voted in favor of legislation to legalize internet-based gambling, clearing the way for foreign and Dutch firms to apply for licenses.

On Monday, the Financieele Dagblad said some 300 companies have expressed interest in running a gambling website in the Netherlands and about 50 are expected to make a formal application for a license when they are up for grabs next year. Tuesday’s vote comes two years after the lower house voted in favor of allowing third parties to legally offer online gambling.

Holland Casino is the Netherlands’ only state-regulated gambling establishment but foreign firms widely flout the ban and continue to target Dutch punters.

The two Christian parties in the ruling coalition voted against the legislation. They claim allowing more companies to offer online betting will lead to more problems with addiction.

Bangladesh bans online gambling websitesReading Time: 1 minute

 

Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has asked all the internet gateway providers and Telecom department to run an internet safety solution programme to block online gambling websites. BTRC is believed to have received an instruction to effect the same from the country’s government.

The telecom regulator has sent the order to block the websites so that these websites will not be accessible in Bangladesh again.

“It might take few more hours to block all the sites completely as blocking any site is so technical,” said Md Emdadul Hoque, general secretary of Internet Service Provider Association of Bangladesh (ISPAB).

A top official of the BTRC said they have often found complaints from different sides about online gambling and that needs to block for the sake of safe internet.
