Richmond Tigers - Alliance for Gambling Reform

Richmond Tigers

To the Board & Management of Richmond Tigers FC-

Over the last year, we're seeing more AFL clubs than every before commit to getting out of pokies as a means of funding their footy. 

It's been a huge win for the community who dislikes that footy is funded through machines that are designed to addict and actively causing serious harm to Australian families! 

You currently own 97 poker machines which last year, took $5.26 million out of the community!

This season, you may be winning on the field but Victorians are losing out when you rely on pokies to fund your footy.

I want this to be your last season with pokies! 

It's time for you to get out!

Will you sign?

The community loses over $5.2 million to Collingwood's 97 pokies every year.

Aside from financial losses, pokies cause serious harm to our community: poverty, addiction, depression and increased incidents of family violence. No AFL club should be associated with a product that has these kinds of side-effects.

Momentum to get the AFL out of pokies is growing fast and what we've seen is there are many alternative ways to fund a footy club that are completely pokie-free! Just this year, Collingwood and Melbourne have committed to divesting from pokies and GWS Giants decided to stay away all together. 

We want AFL to be an activity everyone can enjoy rather than a means to funding harm to families!
