Cricket NSW has signed a two-year extension which will see the rejection of sports betting advertising at home games of the men’s and women’s Big Bash teams the Sydney Sixers and Sydney Thunder, and also their state teams NSW Blues and NSW Breakers.

“Since joining forces with the Office of Responsible Gambling, Cricket NSW has made a meaningful contribution towards changing the community’s attitudes towards betting on sport,” said Cricket NSW CEO Lee Germon.

“We’re proud to be able to continue to play an active part in educating children that gambling is not a part of sport, and that gambling on sport is a bad bet.”

Western Sydney Wanderers’ partnership has been extended for a further two seasons, and includes the women’s team for the first time.

“It is important for us to have an impact beyond the field and together with Reclaim the Game we have brought awareness of the impact that sports betting can have in professional sport,” said Western Sydney Wanderers CEO Scott Hudson.

“We are delighted that this partnership has now extended to our A-League Women’s team, and we look forward to continuing to build our relationship with Reclaim the Game over the next two years.”

Macarthur FC has signed on for an extra season, with the extensions to begin on 7 October when the new A-League gets underway.

“We are proud to continue our partnership with Reclaim the Game and be part of this positive initiative,” said Macarthur FC Group CEO Sam Krslovic.

“Our community wellbeing is our primary focus and we feel it is important to promote a healthy connection between our game and our fans.”

CEO of Hospitality and Racing Anthony Keon commented: “The extended partnerships are a strong show of faith in Reclaim the Game as sporting franchises realise the importance of rejecting sports betting advertising and promoting gambling awareness among their supporters.

“We now have 14 teams from five codes turning down sports betting sponsorships and making gambling awareness and education an important part of their work.”
