The Knowledge Group Has Scheduled a Live Webcast on Sports Gambling Legalization: Looking Back and What’s Ahead

Event Synopsis:
By repealing the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) in a 6-3 decision last 2018, the Supreme Court cleared the way for U.S. federal states to legalize sports gambling. The act, which previously defined the legal status of sports betting in the U.S., was found unconstitutional on the grounds of states’ rights. With the decision, states have been given the freedom to decide the legality and limitations of sports betting within their borders. However, with the ever changing legal climate, any initiative taken going forward will tremendously impact the industry as a whole.

In this LIVE Webcast, a seasoned panel of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the recent developments in sports gambling and betting. Speakers will also present important issues surrounding this topic including the implications of the court’s ruling and an outlook of future trends.

Key topics include:
• Sports Gambling – An Overview
• The Supreme Court’s PASPA Decision
• Status of Sports Gambling in Each State
• Opportunities and Limitations
• What Lies Ahead
