Vietnam to regulate football betting

Back in August, Vietnam started discussing how to proceed with a draft bill for the regulation of football betting under a government company, through its National Assembly Standing Committee.

Some of the issues facing the commitee today include setting spending limits, top tier caps and such since the gap dividing poor and rich is abismal and disproportionate. Some members have proposed limits as low as $50 per day while others want to higher minimums in the vecinity of up to $250.

A pressing matter also involves the question if the government office in charge of football betting would violate the anti-monopoly laws set in place long ago in Vietnam. It is expected that the Assembly members will come to a final decision early in 2014.
