The Minister for Sport, Tracey Crouch MP, launching the 2016 review of our sports betting education partnership at the House of Commons.


Since 2010, the PPF has enjoyed a ground breaking partnership with some of the UK’s leading betting operators to fund education for players against match fixing. This partnership has enabled us to support the development and delivery of on-line learning and face-to-face education in football, cricket, rugby union, golf and snooker. Working with the betting operators we aim to ensure that our sportsmen and women in the UK are some of the best educated in the world about the dangers of match fixing.



The sports law team at national law firm Mills & Reeve has a wealth of experience in providing legal services to sports people, their associations and representatives across the country.

The team, which was established following the firm’s merger with Manchester based George Davies Solicitors LLP, has a great reputation for advising on a range of legal issues in several different sports including football, boxing, athletics, snooker, ice hockey, basketball, rugby league and union, cricket and golf.

Whatever your legal problem, be it contract negotiations, image rights, sports injury and insurance claims, endorsement/sponsorship, anti doping regulations, representations before tribunals or tax planning we can help.
