Image for QPR: Fans furious as sponsorship announcement emerges

A lot of fans have flocked to Twitter to vent their fury with the latest update to emerge from the West London club. 

On Friday, the club announced they had agreed upon a deal with Tebwin to become their official betting partner for the remainder of the 2021/22 campaign.

Are you annoyed by the club's decision to partner with Tebwin?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The agreement with the betting platform will allow the company to have promotional packages promoted by the club as well as advertising the company’s logo across the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

Rangers fans flocked to the tweet from the club’s official Twitter account to share their frustrations with the club for their latest deal with the betting company.

What did these fans have to say?

“Backwards step”

“Very disappointing”
Nice one. Another dodgy company.
“Such a disappointing decision from the QPR Board. Would have been great to see the club show some leadership on this issue similar to that shown by the Bolton W chairman.”
“Terrible decision – Disappointed with the club. Disappointed with whoever sat around a table a agreed this. Can we not find any other partner other than a betting firm??”
“So disappointing that QPR have to associate with yet another betting company!”
“Shame on us. We’ve worked really hard and successfully at positively engaging with the community. This decision is unnecessary, harmful and counter productive.”

I’m normally behind the club decisions but this is completely wrong. Why do we need to be associated with a betting firm, isn’t there another industry we could have got sponsorship from? Harder work required from the commercial dept to find less damaging firms to get onboard.”

The may come as a disappointment to QPR fans following the news just last month that betting sites are set to be banned from football shirt sponsorship in the future with the legislation expected to come into play by 2023 at the earliest.

In addition, the club have previously been forced to end their relationship with Football Index after the company collapsed earlier in the year.

Given the club’s previous dealings with gambling firms, it is clear to see these fans are frustrated with their club’s decision to take up a fresh deal for this season with the betting company Tebwin.
