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!

Woodsides industry is a threat to humanity & needs to make a transition to renewable energy source.
The protection of wildlife is not something any human should have the power to take away. This project is fed by greed and should be stopped.
The world is for the future and so is this country for the next generations to come. Keep our country clean and healthy
Give Woodside the boot, you wouldn’t let a cigarette company sponser you as it damages your health, so don’t let a company sponser you that damages the earth you play on
Woodside wants to use your good name to buy a social licence to expand gas mining at a scale that will drive climate change significantly. This is not a time to mine more gas – it’s a time to use WA’s sun, wind, lithium and steel to drive the renewable energy revolution.
Please say no to the sponsorship money from Woodside.
Woodside is an international disgrace and the young people of today will be the ones who will really suffer as the climate warms.
I am a decades long Freo Dockers supporter. Please take a stand against Woodside’s expansion of its fossil fuel activities, and dump its sponsorship deal. Dockers team players deserve better than to wear the Woodside logo emblazoned on their shirts at a time when the number one concern globally, is climate change. Environmental, heritage, cultural and social values are key and we ask that they be considered paramount in your sponsorship choices.
Take the hint Woodside. Stop trying to buy our future with your greenwashing. Pay your taxes and leave.
