A lawsuit has been launched by the Berlin State Criminal Office against Budesliga second division football club Hertha BSC about its sponsorship agreement with Gauselmann Group's online betting subsidiary Cashpoint, claiming that the club has illegally promoted the Austrian sportsbetting company and thus violated Germany's State Treaty on Gaming.
The lawsuit was assessed by Cashpoint chief executive officer Michael Wondra as " a return to the Middle Ages".
He also added: "We are a sports betting provider that is licensed not only in many European countries, but with Schleswig-Holstein in Germany. Our sports betting is legal! Obviously political games are played on the back of the club and its many thousands of fans. Hertha doesn't deserve this. We opted for Hertha and will do so again in the future with full confidence. In our view this is unjustified and we will stand fully behind our partner as Cashpoint Hertha BSC".
One has to admit the timing of the lawsuit, as well as its subject, seem rather awkward, especially having in mind the legal movements regarding online gambling in the country.
