澳大利亚板球协会拒绝博彩商赞助板球澳超联赛

澳大利亚板球协会CEO凯文-罗伯茨宣布,该机构拒绝了一家博彩公司赞助澳大利亚板球超级联赛(BBL)的请求,理由是T20板球赛历来面向以家庭为单位的观众群体。

澳大利亚板球协会CEO凯文-罗伯茨宣布,该机构拒绝了一家博彩公司赞助澳大利亚板球超级联赛(BBL)的请求,理由是T20板球赛历来面向以家庭为单位的观众群体。

目前,澳大利亚板球协会与国际博彩商bet365签有一份合作协议。双方的合作关系也让澳大利亚板球协会受到赌博业改革联盟发言人蒂姆-科斯特洛的批评。

澳大利亚板球协会未透露具体哪家公司有意赞助BBL。

罗伯茨告诉澳大利亚广播电台SEN Radio:“我们不会接受这份赞助,因为我们要给千万家庭带去欢乐。”

罗伯茨这样描述澳大利亚板球协会与bet365的合作关系:

“这是完全不同的两码事,我们的比赛非常干净,我们把比赛保持得非常干净。

“另外,我们在澳大利亚的博彩业中确实有一点商业合作,但这和比赛完全无关。我得强调一下,我们在这方面的操作是非常保守的……我们在其他方面还有一些商业合作,目前来说,我们做得还不错。

“至于未来的商业策略……我们会反思赞助商所来自的行业、我们所面对的市场、我们的定位以及一些我们要避免的情况。”

罗伯茨还表示,澳大利亚板球协会将在“合适的时间点”重新审视与bet365的合作关系。

近期,澳大利亚板球协会公布其2018-19赛季总收入为4亿零8590万澳元,营业盈余1820亿澳元(约合1120亿欧元)。

可持续性经营收益为4亿零7430万澳元,其他收入总计1160万澳元。1820亿澳元的盈余比前一个赛季(830万澳元)翻了一倍多。
