Working together to address problem gambling in football and beyond.
It’s a done deal – Red Card has become an official sponsor for Langley Football Club for the coming 2023/24 season.
Red Card will be working with the club in raising awareness of gambling- and gaming-related harms, and will be part of their social responsibility campaign, educating players and the wider community.
Red Card will attend four matches throughout the season to present the Man of the Match award, as well as chatting with fans and players.
The gambling industry has sponsored plenty of football clubs. What’s more unusual is for a football club to work with a gambling harms charity. But that’s exactly what Langley FC has done – by accepting sponsorship from Red Card Gambling Support.
It’s great to see Langley FC break the sponsorship mould and we look forward to working with the team!
Founded in 2010, Langley FC is located in the Berkshire town of Langley, close to Slough.
The club's vision is to promote sport that's accessible to all, in order to bring the benefits to as many people as possible. In a similar spirit, the club wants to advance diversity within sport, encouraging people of all backgrounds. The club is currently raising funds to create a sports facility that can be used by the local community.
Langley FC is run by Chris Smith, who has an extensive background in non-league football, and InGameCreative. The latter are a group of gamers that want to change the way football clubs are run. They want to build a greater online presence for clubs, that includes e-Sports, Watch-A-Longs and building an online community across the world.
