Through VicHealth, Australia is the first country to license the world-renowned campaign.

VRGF - Official Partner
The foundation works with community and sports clubs to minimise, and where possible, prevent harm from gambling in Victoria. A key avenue for achieving this is through the foundation’s Strategic Partnerships Program whereby elite sporting clubs like the Melbourne Renegades sign our Love the Game Responsible Gambling Charter and commit to not accepting any revenue from sports betting operators. The partnership program aims to reduce the acceptance of gambling in sport and in other social settings, and decrease the exposure of sports fans, members and the general community to sports betting promotion. The foundation's campaign Love the Game, not the odds also helps to remind Victorians to love what's great about the game, without betting.

Gray Nicolls - Official Supplier
Gray-Nicolls was formed in the 1940’s at the merger of two well-known cricket bat manufacturers, H.J. Gray and Sons and L.J. Nicolls. At this time, the company also acquired the famous brands of Shaw & Shrewsbury and Wainwrights, and England captain Wally Hammond and Australian star Keith Miller began using Gray-Nicolls.
The brand grew in stature in the 1950’s and 60’s, and at one stage the captains of all five test playing countries were using the now world-renown brand (Ted Dexter, Richie Benaud, Frank Worrell, John Reid and Trevor Goddard).
In 1972, a new Gray-Nicolls factory was opened in Melbourne to supply the growing demand from the Australian and New Zealand markets. Gray-Nicolls remains the only brand to produce bats in the UK and Australia, and the only bat company to control the complete process from planting willow to delivering bats to international players like David Warner, Peter Nevill, James Faulkner, Kane Williamson and Shaun Marsh.
