Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation - Official Partner


As Love the Game partners, we say no to sports betting sponsorship to help disrupt the normalisation of sports betting and reduce the gambling promotion our young fans see.

The effects of too many gambling ads on kids is becoming clear. Young men aged 18 to 24 years make up nearly a third of all sports bettors in Victoria, and participation in sports betting by young women is rising.

We encourage our fans to ‘love the game, not the odds’ and to talk to young people this season about the risks associated with gambling.

Find out how to have the talk and see if your club is one of the 500 local clubs also supporting the initiative by visiting lovethegame.vic.gov.au
