Tranmere Rovers sets up problem gambling initiative with Gamban

Tranmere Rovers, its Chairman Mark Palios and its Captain Scott Davies have formed a partnership with The Big Step, Gamban and the NHS to help those impacted by problem gambling.

Emphasising the increased urge for problem gamblers to wager during isolation, the English League Two Football Club is aiming to help those affected by addiction.

However, the club’s announcement came with a headline containing the phrase "combat gambling threat," seeming to paint all gambling with the same brush.

Tranmere Chairman Mark Palios: "When gambling gets out of hand it is like a virus itself and has huge consequences for individuals and families, undermining the relationships and destroying the trust that underpins everything.

"With the boredom and isolation that results from the  lockdown, it has never been more important to help those affected or at risk and we felt the time to act was now.

"The project with The Big Step is not just a short-term fix, but will evolve into a longer-term initiative too."
