2017 in review: Booze Free Sport

You’re in for a treat this summer. To farewell 2017 and welcome in the New Year, FARE’s Drink Tank team is showcasing the best of 2017; a selection of the most robust and interesting conversations from preventive health experts, researchers and practitioners for your reading pleasure.

Today we talk ‘Booze Free Sport’, and hear from leading Australians who are calling for an end to alcohol advertising in sport.

Despite mounting evidence about harm to children because of exposure to alcohol advertising, Australia’s major sporting codes continue to cling to alcohol sponsorship. In this Drink Tank piece, leading Australians weigh in on why they think national leaders should take a stand and call foul on alcohol sponsorship and advertising in sport.

Are you concerned about alcohol sponsorship in sport? Do you want to be a catalyst for change? We are calling you to act now by supporting our Booze Free Sport campaign. Take action today!



Drink Tank aims to generate meaningful commentary and debate about alcohol policy, and to provide a platform for all members of the Australian community to share their views and concerns.

Our goal is for the Drink Tank community to engage in robust discussion about alcohol, highlighting a broad spectrum of views and voices, and ultimately to raise the profile of alcohol as an issue of national importance.
