Opportunities via Practical Regulation? Media Providers in a Liberalized Sports Betting Market
Sports betting is a billion dollar industry – but is it a utopia in Germany? Various media would be able to generate additional revenue from the broadcast of sporting events and the selling of ad space to providers of sports betting services. However, this would require an opening of the sports betting market. But current discussions at the state level in Germany regarding a possible modernization of the Gambling Treaty do not go as far as providers would like. Their main criticism is that the planned conditions are simply not marketable. Even the European Commission has registered second thoughts about the new draft proposal. For media companies and providers of sports betting services, it is unclear how, when and whether or not they will be able to operate on markets at all.
