New Muslim owner of Spanish football club ends William Hill shirt sponsorship

Only one year into a three year sponsorship deal with Spanish football club Malaga, William Hill plc has agreed to withdraw from the agreement after the new club owner raised objections on religious grounds.

The new owner of Malaga is Sheikh Abdullah Bin Nasser Al-Thani (43), a member of the Qatari royal family who acquired the Spanish club in June for Euro 10.5 million (see previous report).

He raised religious concerns about a gambling company being involved with the club, claiming that this went against the tenets of his Islamic religion, and by mutual consent both club and gambling company have agreed to end the sponsorship.
