AWC TO DISBAND AND REGROUP AFTER WILLIAM HILL WITHDRAWAL (Update)
Wider, renewed body to be formed.
The Australian Wagering Council (AWC), a trade association representing the interests of online bookmakers such as Sportsbet, William Hill, Betfair and Bet365 has said it will disband following the withdrawal of William Hill on the back of the Government’s in-play betting ban as the association is now “less representative” than they would like.
According to The Australian, AWC chief executive officer Ian Fletcher said the industry would consult on forming a wider, renewed body for the future.
“Other members agreed with that analysis, and also agreed that we would use the rest of the year to consult on a refreshed organisation,” Fletcher said.
