The National League have been getting criticised after they put out an announcement on social media about their new betting partner.
The partnership will come into play onwards from the National League Promotion Final at Wembley on Saturday 11th May and through the 2019/20 season.
Fans however have been left angry at this with one suggesting to the league that it was “very contradictory to the ethics you preach to players and staff of football clubs in your league.”
