31% of French football fans bet on Euro 2020

22 Jun 2021

The French gaming regulator, the Autorité Nationale des Jeux (ANJ), has conducted research showing that 31% of French football fans are placing their bets on Euro 2020. The results of this research, which was conducted by ANJ and administered by Harris Interactive, demonstrated that around 48% of the French bettors follow Euro 2020, with the percentage being close to that of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

ANJ to Ramp up Regulations Ahead of Expected Gambling Increase

Men aged under 50 are the ones betting the most, which is generally close to France’s profile of football enthusiasts. The survey showed that 49% of these have been actively betting with their loved ones, and 31% have been doing so more seriously in sports betting operators. From the previously mentioned, 63% are using sports betting sites, while 56% try their luck at land-based betting shops.

Nonetheless, the ANJ insists that operators must maintain a moderate and controlled gambling practice, explaining clearly the bonuses’ terms to potential and existing bettors and that players should set limits and not overestimate their expertise. The bonuses offered need to be monitored during the tournament, as the player return rate must not exceed 85% in sports betting. Added to that, the survey showed that 80% of the participants knew the risks of gambling and the harm it may cause.

ANJ eventually stressed the importance of fighting corruption and match-fixing in football and that it supports the Anti-Match-Fixing Assessment Group that was established by the Copenhagen Group and the Council of Europe, with Interpol and Europol.
