The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) officially joined the American Gaming Association (AGA) responsible sports betting campaign.
Thus, the mixed martial arts organization started to support the cause “Have A Game Plan, Bet Responsibly”, a public campaign by AGA that aims to educate sports fans about the importance of responsible sports betting.
The UFC will use its own digital channels, broadcast and event venues to promote the campaign, which was launched by the U.S. entity in 2019.
“As bets expand nationwide, professional sports leagues recognize the need to educate fans and ensure that they are betting safely,” said AGA President and CEO Bill Miller.
Miller continued: “We are grateful to see this campaign grow as expressive leagues like the UFC lend their voice to this important effort. The UFC’s commitment is essential to involving, educating and encouraging its fans – some of whom may be placing bets for the first time – to bet responsibly ”.
The UFC joins PGA TOUR, the National Hockey League (NHL), NASCAR, FanDuel, Vegas Golden Knights and Monumental Sports and Entertainment as official partners in the awareness campaign.
UFC President Dana White commented: “We have the most passionate and obstinate fans of any sport and they love to bet on the UFC, but it is important that they do it responsibly.”
Dana White added: “We are proud to work with AGA and support this campaign to encourage our fans to make smart decisions and promote responsible gaming.”https://twitter.com/ufc/status/1379411062647185411
