Safer Gambling Week, from 19th-25th November, is a campaign led by the gambling industry to promote tools that are available to help people gamble safely all year round, as well as providing resources for more advice and support.
As part of the Southampton’s commitment to promoting responsible gambling, the club has teamed up with Main Club Partner Sportsbet.io to launch ‘Listen to the Saint in you’, encouraging fans to consider the risks before placing a bet.
Further advice on how to manage gambling behaviour can be accessed by visiting our Safer Gambling Week hub with information on how you can identify problem gambling and where to seek help: https://www.southamptonfc.com/saints-partners/safer-gambling-week .
Fans can also get support from RecoverMe, a new mobile health app that empowers individuals to manage a gambling addiction from their pocket.
RecoverMe’s app gives support for problem gamblers, encouraging them to seek help by providing a discrete option for support, with an aim to prevent gambling related harm nationwide.
The club supported the launch for RecoverMe as part of the club’s ongoing commitment to promote responsible gambling, building strong relationships with organisations positioned at the forefront of aiding those struggling with gambling addiction, to help enhance and refine our own practices.
At Southampton, we recognise that gambling can form part of a fan’s enjoyment of football, but we also believe that we have a responsibility to raise awareness of the support available for those that might need it, both on matchdays and non-matchdays.
