Canaries Apologise For Sponsors

Norwich City have apologised to supporters and cancelled a sponsorship deal with Asian gambling firm BK8. The club were heavily criticised for the deal after their marketing material was brought to light and, after initially just asking for the offensive material to be removed from BK8's platforms, Norwich decided to pull out of the deal. Chief opperating officer Ben Kensell said: "We place huge value on our open and honest relationships with our community and supporters. As a self-financed club there is always a fine balance between generating the revenue levels required to help maintain that model, whilst working within our visions and values. On this occasion, we made an error of judgement. Our standards were not at the level we demand of our football club."
