Reclaim the Game – AFL
The Sydney Swans are proud to take a stance against sports betting sponsorship and advertising. Their fans are behind them:
- 90% of Swans fans believe there is too much gambling advertising.
- 90% of Swans fans believe children and young people are exposed to too much gambling advertising.
- 77% of Swans fans believe gambling should not be part of experiencing sport.
Tom Harley, CEO of the Sydney Swans said the club was thrilled to be working in partnership with the NSW Government’s Reclaim the Game initiative to raise awareness of the risks associated with gambling.
“The focus of our partnership is on addressing the normalisation of sports betting and as part of this, Swans matches at the SCG will not feature gambling advertising or sponsorship,” Mr Harley said.
