Woodside is among Australia’s largest polluting gas companies. Its plans to build the Scarborough Gas Project and Pluto extension would generate emissions over its lifetime equal to ten years of running all of the country’s coal-fired power stations combined!
No matter where it is burnt, the gas Woodside digs up is fuelling climate damage and destroying Australia’s precious places like the Great Barrier and Ningaloo Reefs, compromising the wishes of Traditional Owners and putting people’s health at risk.
How do they get away with it? Woodside, and other big polluters, are sponsoring and exploiting our favourite sports to buy a positive reputation.
When Woodside plasters its logo across the purple hearts of Fremantle Dockers players, it’s paying for the connection and loyalty we feel for sports, and marketing themselves as a community-oriented brand – all so that Woodside can keep polluting.
We need to stop Woodside from using sports sponsorships to wash away their dirty image. That’s why, we're calling on people, no matter what footy jumper you wear or if you don’t support any team, to sign this petition:
Our teams are not for sale. We urge the Board of Fremantle FC to immediately end its sponsorship deal with Woodside Energy to protect the people, places, and game we love.
We will be delivering the voice of the community and your messages at the Annual General Meeting of the Fremantle Dockers Football Club on 6 December. Sign now and share!

It’s not right that fossil fuels corporations are sponsoring sport.
They would be better off keeping up with the rest of the world and invest in green energy.
Stay away from sport!
Your business is not wanted.
It’s all about profit for companies such as Woodside.
Go and dig up your own country and see how that goes!!!!
Woodside and other destructive corporations are destroying our world. How can the Dockers possibly approve of that fact? End the sponsorship, Fremantle…now!
We need to stop polluters like Woodside gaining social licence through sports. A good example is the logo on Dockers shirt. Come on Dockers protect the environment not the gas industry.
All sponsorship should be reduced, as should players outrageous salaries.
No one wants to support climate change getting worse….so don’t support Woodside
No matter where it is burnt, the gas Woodside digs up is continuing to fuel climate damage; in so doing icon places like the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland waters, & Ningaloo reef in W.A waters. Traditional owners’ health & cultural identity, their exceptional understanding of Country is at risk.
Such companies are not worthy of being supported by Australian sporting groups.
Stop using fossil fuel please
As a shareholder I want Woodside out of fossil fuels and into clean energy
There is no place for excavating and burning fossil fuels any longer. No profit based rational holds up against the destruction of the bisphere.
Enough greenwashing and parsimonious and patronising sponsorship of science, sport and the arts by the very companies that are destroying the natural systems on which we all rely for oyr very existence.
We can and must transition to renewable energy now.
Definitely not. Otherwise we are compromising our position.
Taking their money with one hand and fighting to get rid of them with the other hand.
Promoting fossil fuel companies via sport sponsorship gaslights the community to the climate harm these organisations cause.
