Safer gambling week
Southampton Football Club and its partner Sportsbet.io are supporting this year's Safer Gambling Week, running from 19th-25th November to raise awareness of how to gamble more responsibly.
Safer Gambling Week is a campaign led by the gambling industry to promote tools that are available to help people gamble safely all year round, as well as sources for more advice and support.
As part of the Southampton's commitment to promoting responsible Gambling, the club has teamed up with Main Club Partner Sportsbet.io to launch 'Listen to the Saint in you', encouraging fans to consider the risks before placing a bet.

Fans can also get support from RecoverMe, a new mobile health app that empowers individuals to manage a gambling addiction from their pocket, which can be downloaded here. RecoverMe's app gives support for problem gamblers, encouraging them to seek help by providing a discrete option for support, with an aim to prevent gambling related harm nationwide.
At Southampton FC, we recognise that gambling can form a part of a fan's enjoyment of football, but we also believe that we have a responsibility to raise awareness of the support available for those that might need it.
