You’ve decided to take a stand against sports betting sponsorships and sign up to Love the Game, so what happens next?

We encourage new members to create a gambling harm prevention policy to implement at your club. Together with your committee members, you can select from a list the actions your club will take to prevent and reduce gambling harm.

The club will have access to a range of free resources, including social media messages, web banners and educational videos ready to use and promote at any time of your choosing.

Every year, we host a Love the Game round in which all our partners are invited to participate. The aim is to raise awareness about the risks associated with sports betting and encourage young people to love the game, not the odds.

We are always available to support you – simply drop us an email if you have any questions or need any assistance.
