UK elite athletes body teams up with Gamstop The Professional Players Federation (PPF), the body that represents thousands of elite athletes in the UK, is hoping to reduce its members’ risk of developing gambling problems through a partnership with British online self-exclusion scheme Gamstop. The PPF said it would look to raise awareness of the solution among its members and the wider public through the new partnership, sharing information about Gamstop across the PPF website and social channels. Fiona Palmer, chief executive of Gamstop, said she was “extremely excited” to work closely with the PPF and its members. “We welcome PPF’s commitment to protecting and educating those closest to sport who might be affected by problems with their gambling,” Palmer said. “This partnership will help ensure that all members have the practical tools and support around them to be protected and educated.” More than 150,000 people have already registered with Gamstop since its launch. Since March 2020, all British online operators must be integrated with Gamstop as a condition of their Gambling Commission licence. Consumers who register with Gamstop can choose to exclude themselves from every gambling site for a minimum period of six months, one year or five years. They cannot then remove themselves from the scheme until their self-exclusion period has expired, and if they do not contact Gamstop, their registration is automatically rolled over for up to seven years.
