Reclaim the Game – Rugby League

The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and South Sydney Rabbitohs have taken a stance against sports betting sponsorship and advertising by partnering with Reclaim the Game.

Their fans support the move:

  • 80% of Bulldogs fans and 77% of Rabbitohs fans agree there is too much gambling advertising.
  • 82% of Bulldogs fans and 79% of Rabbitohs fans believe children and young people are exposed to too much gambling advertising.

Aaron Warburton, CEO of the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs said “In 2022 we joined forces with Reclaim the Game to say no to sports betting advertising. It was a first of its kind partnership for our club and one we are extremely proud of, challenging the notion that betting is a normal part of the game.

“Rugby League is one of the most entertaining sporting experiences on offer and we firmly believe that our members and fans should be able to watch and enjoy this great game without constant advertising from sports betting companies. 

“The contests, rivalries, skills and personalities within our game are what make it so attractive to millions of viewers and we couldn’t put it better than to say, don’t let a bet take you away from the game.”

Blake Solly, CEO of the South Sydney Rabbitohs said “We are thrilled to extend our partnership with Reclaim the Game.  

"Their commitment to being part of a positive social movement aligns with the values of our club, and we are excited to continue working together to challenge the notion that gambling is a normal part of sport."
