You will require this approval if you organise a sports event and you intend to arrange for a betting service to be offered on the event.
It is illegal for a sports betting provider to offer a betting service on a sports event unless the provider has an agreement with the approved sports controlling body for the event.
The agreement must provide for the sharing of information to ensure integrity in sports and sports betting, state if a fee is payable by the sports provider to the Sports Controlling Body in respect of the event and specify the amount of the fee or how it is to be calculated.
To apply, complete the Sports Controlling Body application form.
Please consult the responsible agency for more information regarding eligibility requirements.
