The Swedish state gambling operator Svenska Spel became the general sponsor of the Swedish Hockey League, the Swedish Women’s Hockey League and the Swedish Ice Hockey Championship. The agreement on this, signed by the company and the Swedish Hockey League, will take effect from July 1, 2021 until 2026. Representatives of the Swedish Hockey League, commenting on the signing of the agreement, noted that they are already waiting for Svenska Spel’s money for the development of this sport. My Lucky Story wrote that the Swedish Online Gambling Industry Association demanded that Svenska Spel be stripped of its monopoly position in the country’s gambling market. Earlier it became known that the subsidiary Svenska Spel received a new Swedish casino license. Recall that the operator Svenska Spel has been deprived of a license for slot machines in Sundsvall.
