TORONTO, November 3, 2020 – Score Media and Gaming Inc. (TSX: SCR) (“theScore” or the “Company”) Founder and CEO John Levy issued the following statement on today’s anticipated reintroduction of legislation (Private Members Bill C-218) in the House of Commons to legalize single event wagering at the federal level in Canada.
“We strongly support this bill to amend Canada’s outdated federal laws and give sports fans the choice to wager on single events,” said Mr. Levy. “Canadians deserve a modernized, regulated, and competitive sports betting market, and the reintroduction of this bill is another important step in that direction. As Canada’s leading independent digital sports media brand, and with an active and growing U.S. sportsbook business, we are very excited about the potential opportunities around regulated sports betting here. When the opportunity arises, we will be ready to offer our award-winning sportsbook, theScore Bet, to fans on our home turf.”
