Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation - Official Partner


The Melbourne Stars is proud to partner with the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation.

The foundation works with community and sports clubs to minimise, and where possible, prevent harm from gambling in Victoria. A key avenue for achieving this is through the foundation’s Strategic Partnerships Program whereby elite sporting clubs like the Melbourne Stars sign our Love the Game Responsible Gambling Charter and commit to not accepting any revenue from sports betting operators.

The partnership program aims to reduce the acceptance of gambling in sport and in other social settings, and decrease the exposure of sports fans, members and the general community to sports betting promotion. The foundation's campaign Love the Game, not the odds also helps to remind Victorians to love what's great about the game, without betting.
