CAF launches African Super League

CAF revealed that at least 16 countries would be represented in the Super League. The competition will provide $100 million in prize money, including $11.6m for the winner.
Confederation of African Football president Dr Patrice Motsepe has also confirmed that there will be a promotion-relegation element to the competition.

Betby’s Leonid Pertsovskiy discusses sports betting innovations
Leonid Pertsovskiy, Chief Executive Officer at Betby, was one of the industry experts interviewed by EuropeanGaming about the changing landscape of sports betting.
We’ve certainly played with the idea of dividing up old-school audiences from the newcomers, due to the differences in their behaviours. We understand experienced punters don’t particularly enjoy new features or innovation within sportsbook, and therefore require a simplified layout and interface that they can relate to, while on the other side of the spectrum, new users enjoy being met with an abundance of new technologies and products thanks to their pursuit of instant gratification – Pertsovskiy said in the interview.

Granit Xhaka’s yellow card investigated due to high-stake bets
Arsenal player’s yellow card during the closing stages of his team’s 4-1 victory over Leeds United is being investigated by the National Crime Agency in England.
Investigators are probing the last season’s game due to an alleged criminal conspiracy involving the Albanian mafia.
