AFL National Gambling Policy
This is a policy of the AFL which all football clubs are expected to promote and ensure player awareness.
The policy is a legal document. In essence, it states that players and officials must not gamble on any football match where they have the potential (as a player or official) to influence the result.
Put very simply:
- DO NOT GAMBLE ON YOUR CLUB’S GAMES
- DO CONTACT THE AFL DIRECTLY IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS
For more information, download the AFL National Gambling Policy here.
Again this is a legal document which must be read to fully understand.
Very simply the code prohibits the use of WADA-listed performance-enhancing substances and methods.
