We've partnered with the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation because we love the game. 

The amount of gambling advertising currently in the marketplace would make it seem like sports betting is just a normal part of sport. By making it seem normal the risks are often not considered, and people can end up experiencing gambling-related harm. 

This season we’re encouraging all Essendon fans to cheer, celebrate and share in every moment of the game with us, and not focus on the odds. Betting companies have taken the great moments of our game and are enticing fans to bet on them. Odds have extended past just a win by a team to being able to bet on the first point scorer in a game, winning margin, team to score first, time of first goal, and more. 

Here at Essendon we believe it’s time to get back to loving the game for what it is and take the focus off betting. Join us in celebrating all the great moments this season and remember to love the game, not the odds.
