Begbies Traynor LLP appointed as BetIndex/Football INDEX administrators

FOOTBALL INDEX STATEMENT – 22.07.2021 

JOINT ADMINISTRATORS URGE FOOTBALL INDEX PLAYERS TO ACCESS E-WALLETS AND WITHDRAW FUNDS

Begbies Traynor, the Joint Administrators of Football Index, is urging players to access their e-wallet funds following its announcement last week (12.07.2021) that funds could now be withdrawn.

Arrangements were finalised on 12.07.2021 by the Joint Administrators and the Board of Index Lab for the opening up of customer accounts for withdrawals. It wishes to do all it can to ensure that all players are fully aware that they can access the funds through their Football Index account.

These arrangements followed the High Court handing down a judgement to release Player Protection Fund monies on 22.06.2021, following a postponement of the decision on 21.05.2021.

Statement from the Joint Administrators of BetIndex Limited:

“Following our statement announcing that the Board of Index Labs has agreed to process the customer repayments, we are urging players of Football Index with e-wallet balances to access their accounts and withdraw their money as soon as possible. 

“The joint administrators are concerned that after an initial flurry of players removing money from their e-wallets the process has slowed and customers risk missing out on this opportunity to access the Player Protection Funds that have been released."
