The GAA’s gambling awareness campaign, ‘Reduce the Odds’, aims to protect the wellbeing of GAA members and the integrity of Gaelic Games. The campaign reinforces the ground-breaking decision by GAA Congress 2018 to prohibit the sponsorship by a betting firm of any GAA competition, team, playing gear, or facility. Specifically, the campaign aims to:
- inform all members of the Association’s rules relating to gambling
- highlight research identifying athletes as an at-risk group in relation to problem gambling
- signpost persons in need of help to support services available in Ireland
