Gambling sponsorship will be axed at the end of the 2025/26 season, the league said in a statement.

Until then existing – and new – shirt-front gambling sponsorship contracts will be allowed.

Clubs will continue to be able to feature gambling brands in other areas, including shirt-sleeves and LED advertising.

Thursday’s announcement follows an extensive consultation involving the league, its clubs and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

The move forms part of the government’s ongoing review of current gambling legislation.

The Premier League said it is also working with other sports on the development of a new code for responsible gambling sponsorship.
