Talkback with Tredders: Why betting companies should be banned from sport The Big Deal - Australian Sports Business Podcast

    • Business

In our first Talkback With Tredders episode, AFL great Warren Tredrea has called for leading Australian sports organisations to drop their partnerships with betting companies. 

Tredders took questions from The Big Deal audience which included tackling the big issue of betting sponsorships in sport.

In the wake of the AFL’s Brownlow Medal betting saga, Tredders challenged Australia’s major leagues to show leadership and pull the pin on gambling partnerships and in-game betting ads. 

He said organisations like the AFL don’t need the revenue, and believes the social issue of gambling addiction is so important that if players had to take a pay cut to cover the shortfall, so be it. 

Tredders and The Big Deal team unpacked the potential ramifications of such a move.

They also took on questions about sports integrity and the influence of government and big business on sport, challenges for sport’s business model, as well as footy topics including the future of Jason Horne-Francis, long-term deals and more.
