We've been pushing really hard for this and we're nearly there!
With more clubs than ever now out of the pokies business, the good news is that momentum is building. In 2018, Collingwood and Melbourne sold their poker machine venues, while Geelong and the Western Bulldogs have promised to exit completely by the end of this year.
Momentum's building fast! We're also excited by the AFL chairman, Richard Goyder, has publicly coming out as against pokies. We have a real opportunity to get the AFL out of pokies for good, so we're going directly to the AFL Commission.
We need a firm commitment by the AFL Commission that they will support getting out of pokies and the clubs that want too.
We've pre-written an email to the AFL Commission- all you need to do is fill in your details and hit send- just like a petition! To send a powerful message, add a sentence or two to tell the Commission why YOU THINK they should get out of pokies!
We're so close to getting pokies out of AFL- let's do it!
