A worldwide ban on betting on football will come into force from 1 August 2014 for certain participants in English football.
Included within the worldwide prohibition are all those involved in the game at Football Conference level, as well as the top two divisions in each of the Northern, Southern and Isthmian leagues.
Participants covered by the ban will be prohibited from betting, either directly or indirectly, on any football match or competition that takes place anywhere in the world.
The changes to FA Rules from the start of the 2014/15 season will also effect a worldwide prohibition on betting on any other football-related matter.
For example, the transfer of players, employment of managers or team selection. The passing of inside information to somebody that uses the information for betting remains prohibited
