Poll Should sports sponsorship by alcohol companies be regulated

first_img Yes, there should be a full ban (503) Yes, but it should be voluntary (with compensation for those opting out) (473) Poll Results: SPORTS MINISTER LEO Varadkar has tabled a proposal which would see sports organisations, clubs and teams compensated for lost revenue if they opt out of sponsorship from alcohol companies.The scheme would be less severe than that proposed by other members of government who want to see a full ban on any links between the drinks industry and sport.The Minister said a similar opt-out system works well in Australia, arguing that a full ban could be considered at a later stage “when it is shown that the money lost can be replaced through alternative sponsors”.
