BGC Members waive exclusive rights to show FA Cup games
Following reports about the media rights for screening FA Cup games, Brigid Simmonds, Chairman of the Betting and Gaming Council, said:
“Our members did not seek exclusivity for the rights to screen FA cup games.
They are therefore happy for IMG to offer the rights to screen these games to the Football Association or another appropriate body so that the games can be viewed for free by the public with immediate effect.”
This statement is supported by bet365, GVC, Flutter, William Hill and Kindred.
