Tough new rules introduced by England’s Football Association will outlaw all football-related betting for players, club employees and match officials in the top eight levels of the sport. It means that starting with the 2014-15 season, gambling on any match, in England or anywhere in the world, will be prohibited. Betting on off-field developments such as managerial moves and player transfers will also be banned. The crackdown applies to bets made in person, online, on the telephone or through a friend or any third party, the FA states on its website, which contains a video explaining the tightening of its gambling rules.
