Liverpool suspend 1XBET partnership pending full investigation
According to the Liverpool Echo this evening, Liverpool have suspended their partnership with betting firm 1XBET.
The betting firm has had their license suspended in the past week as it emerged that they had been placing adverts on website that illegally stream Premier League football.
The Premier League has seriously clamped down sites illegally streaming their matches and apparently they were also allowing bets on children's sports and also cockfighting in some countries.
The Russian firm have now launched their own investigation into these practices, claiming to have been unaware of how they were advertising online.
Liverpool only joined up with the company back in July and it appears that the lucrative agreement may now be dead in the water.
