The real blow to the chin was the ruling of the Supreme Court regarding the illegality of operating online betting houses in our country that are directly related to Chilean football.
In what was dictated by the highest national legal body, PollaChilena de Beneficencia was indicated as the only organization capable of carrying out this type of practice, imposing a veto on more than 20 online betting sites.
That is why they have already started to take action on this issue and 5 national teams have also terminated their relationships with this type of betting entity.
Specifically, the BioBioChile research unit released a report a few days ago about the links between Betway and some teams in the national championship.
And in the document developed by the media, there is an account of tax havens, “ghost” offices and the penalties already imposed on the same betting house referred to from the United Kingdom, a penalty from 1190 Sports – intermediaries in Chile of the gaming platform – which they claimed they did not know.
Now, according to information revealed by El Mercurio, there are 5 teams that are finalizing the process of closing their contracts and are able to free themselves and avoid legal repercussions.
In the national media, they detailed that Nublense, Everton, Coquimbo Unidos, Audax Italiano and Union La Calera are finalizing the details to get rid of the association with the broker 1190 Sports.
This means a significant reduction in the coffers of the aforementioned national teams – where, for example, as detailed by the BioBioChile Research Unit – the income obtained by the “pirates” arrived due to the association with the company that represents Betway in Chile. $120,000 annually divided into 12 monthly installments of $10,000. Something like 8 million pesos per month.
