The End Alcohol Advertising in Sport campaign is a people-powered campaign which aims to stop the loophole that allows the alcohol industry to advertise its product to kids during Australia's favourite sports. Alcohol sponsorship of sport impacts both players and spectators. It is associated with hazardous drinking by those playing the sport and communicates strong messages about alcohol brands and drinking that are absorbed by children. By signing up to the campaign, we can put pressure on Governments to change the legislation and end alcohol advertising in sport.
