Rotherham 1-0 Pompey: they said what?

Have your say

There will be no cash betting allowed at Fratton Park today ahead of Pompey’s match with Oldham.

The ongoing ownership battle has meant the Blues have not renewed the gaming licence at the ground, meaning the club’s betting partner – The Betting Room - will not be able to accept cash bets at the stadium.

Bets can still be taken over the phone.

A Betting Room statment to customers read: ‘The club is currently renewing the licence, and hopefully this will be resolved shortly. Until this is confirmed we are unable to accept cash bets at the stadium. This is of frustration to ourselves as well as you but is a situation which we are unable to resolve immediately.

‘We will provide an update at the next game as to when we expect to be able to take bets at the next game.

‘Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience; again, this is totally out of our control.’
