The Youth Council for Northern Ireland is an organization that aims to represent the voices and opinions of young people in the region. One of the ways they do this is by advocating for youth-friendly policies and initiatives, including in the realm of sports and recreation.".

In recent years, sports betting has become an increasingly popular pastime for many young people in Northern Ireland. While there are certainly risks associated with gambling, some argue that it can also provide a source of entertainment and even potential financial gain.
