We expect a combination of favorable legislation and consumer adoption to drive growth in US online sports betting and internet gambling (i-Gaming) from $900 million/$1.5 billion markets today to $39 billion/$14 billion in 2033, equating to 40 percent/27 percent CAGRs for over a decade,” said Goldman Sachs in a note to clients.

Dutch and Belgian football leagues to merge into BeNe League
The Belgian Pro League confirmed that its clubs had unanimously voted in favour of launching a cross-border league with the Dutch Eredivisie. The new competition would be called the BeNe League.
“This ambition is based both on the respect of the big clubs’ sporting ambitions, and on the need for economic stability for the other professional clubs,” the Pro League’s statement said. “The 25 clubs are unanimous in their desire to give the BeNeLeague a fair chance.”
According to Belgian media, the merger could generate up to £343m annually in marketing and TV rights deals. Read more

Euro 2020 – with or without fans in stadiums?
Will football fans be allowed to watch their teams in stadiums? Will matches have to be moved? What about travelling between countries?
These are some of the questions football fans have been asking before EURO 2020. It seems that, with various levels of COVID-19 crisis in different host countries, nobody can be sure what to expect.
“It is simply not possible at this point in time to make a statement about whether or not the coronavirus pandemic will allow spectators in June, or not,” Dieter Reiter, the mayor of Munich, told German daily Bild newspaper. Read more
