FA Chair Greg Dyke Discussing Complete Ban On Player, Staff Football Betting

FA Chair Greg Dyke said that "a complete ban on players and club staff betting on football matches could soon be introduced," according to the BBC. Dyke said, "No final decision has been made, but it [a complete ban] is one of the things that's being discussed." A full ban "is in place in Scotland, and while employees of English clubs can gamble on football matches, restrictions are in place." The current regulations state that a player "shall not bet, either directly or indirectly" on matches involving themselves or their team as well as the competition they play in or have played in (BBC, 3/10).
