​English FA ends all ties with betting companies after Ladbrokes axe

The FA have ended their £4m-a-year sponsorship deal with Ladbrokes following a decision taken by the board in May to distance the organisation from betting companies.

The lucrative four-year deal was signed just last year, but it was scuppered by the governing body in order to promote an anti-gambling message.

In a statement, FA chief executive Martin Glenn said: "We would like to thank Ladbrokes for both being a valued partner over the last year and for their professionalism and understanding about our change of policy around gambling."
