Our partners, Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation, are providing the opportunity for one team to be trained by and have a Q&A with Guy and Maddie.

Melbourne Boomers has been a Love the Game partner since 2019. As a partner, Melbourne Boomers helps reduce the exposure of sports betting promotion and disrupts social norm of betting and sport.

Melbourne Boomers encourages their fans to Love the Game, Not the Odds.
