Sports content provider Perform Group has agreed a new partnership with the Womens Tennis Association (WTA) that increases the amount of content that will be offered. The four-year-deal sees the amount of matches offered double with Perform managing the development of media right outside of North America. Companies and bettors in the sports betting industry will be glad this includes the firm’s popular Watch&Bet platform as it means they can ogle as much as they like at hot female tennis players. Cha-ching!

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) found no reason to uphold a complaint made by a punter against the Tote. The now Betfred-owned group saw a claim made against them involving a leaflet that was sent out with tickets for a race meeting at Goodwood in July. “Goodwood your guide to tote betting at the races” included the line “And unlike the bookies – we actually want you to win!  What you also get is better choice, better value and better service than you’ll find in the betting ring.  And perhaps most importantly, a bet with us supports the sport you love – as all of the tote’s profits stay in racing”. The complainant made three claims against the leaflets with the fact they believed it to be misleading and point that was eventually rejected by the ASA.
