PST & Fansbet

The Posh Supporters Trust has agreed to a partnership with the online betting company Fansbet.

Fansbet are bookmakers with a difference as they give back 50% of their net profit to supporters groups, such as the PST.

The PST advocates responsible gambling, so we don’t wish to encourage people to start betting if they don’t already do so, but if you do already enjoy a flutter, then why not use Fansbet instead of your usual online betting service.

You can find Fansbet at www.fansbet.com and if you choose to sign up with them, please nominate Peterborough United as you chosen team and if your bet loses, at least you know that not all of you money is going into the pocket of the bookie, some of it is coming back to the Trust, which we in turn will use on community projects, such as the Smile Scheme and other projects. The money we receive from Fansbet can help the football club in the future.

Fansbet offer all the same betting markets as the other online services, but will also offer special enhanced odds offers exclusively aimed at Posh fans, such as the “Perfect Day” which will give generous odds on, for example, a Posh to win, Cambridge to lose and Northampton to lose multiple bet.

Safe Standing petition

The PST believe football fans at all levels of the game should have the choice to stand or sit at football grounds and as such are fully supportive of West Bromwich Albion’s application to install more than 3,000 rail seats in the Smethwick End at the Hawthorns.

Unfortunately their application was rejected by the Sports Minister Tracey Crouch. Compounding the disappointment of the decision, Crouch said that she wanted to see current regulations, prohibiting persistent standing, more strictly enforced and labelled those campaigning for change to the legislation a “vocal minority”!

Her comments have caused a backlash from supporters and even the Football Safety Officers Association (FSOA) have publicly criticised the Government’s stance on the issue, claiming a pilot at West Brom would be a “perfect opportunity to gather much-needed data” on rail seating.

The PST are backing this petition and hope you will sign this petition.
