During the recent arrangement, the FA had had to describe and give detailed information about how this system works in cooperation with other bookmakers to the British government and Parliament. Private Sports Minister Nigel Adams revealed that the British government was angry about this and offered the FA to find an alternative option. If it is necessary, the contracts between the FA and bookmakers will need to be invalidated beforehand.

Nigel Adams added that the FA will not be allowed to sign any new contracts after its six-year contract with the previous partner.
The British Government can not accept the live match being streamed on this bookmaker.
