Betting has changed. More than ever our fans, members and players are exposed to sports betting advertising through the media, new apps and technology.
As a leader in our community, we have a responsibility to protect supporters of the sport from harm, particularly reducing the exposure of our young fans to sports betting promotion.
To achieve this, we’ve partnered with the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation and signed the Responsible Gambling Charter.
This means our club is committed to:
- Refraining from making sponsorship deals with sports betting companies
- Keeping gambling away from areas young people are present, including club, social and fundraising activities
- Not providing gambling related prizes or awards
- Encouraging responsible gambling among our members and fans
Working with the Foundation’s venue support program to train club venue staff to identify and support people who might be having problems with gambling.
Together with the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation we are encouraging fans to remember the passion, not the odds.
Football is as exciting as ever, but with the increase in betting promotion over the years, it’s easy to forget what really matters. We’re asking fans to remember that our game is great enough.
Hear from Sean Dempster and Jack Steven explaining why they love the game, not the odds.
