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 to the board of the Fremantle Dockers Football Club. Sign now and share!

When I was a mad footy supporter as a kid, there was no corporate sponsoring of teams at all – that was the stuff of dystopian futures as in the film Rollerball (look it up). Let’s not compound it with a big polluter like Woodside.

Please don’t allow Woodside to use you to greenwash their image. We can’t afford to develop any new gas fields.

My local council Waratah Wynyard Council just banned fossil fuel advertising and sponsorship os council property and events due to impacts on community health and climate. As a mum, I am soooo thankful to them. How can we say we are doing what we can to tackle climate change and take this issue seriously is we are still allow fossil fuels companies to buy community support through our beloved sporting clubs? What a terrible and cruel contradiction. Banning fossil fuel advertising and sponsorship is essential climate action.

Dear Freo team

Giving Woodside the boot would be a magnificent way to ensure the game continues into the future.

Fossil fuels are burning up the future of all our kids, we don’t need them, they need us.

Thanks so much

As a big time Dockers’ supporter, it breaks my heart big time seeing Woodside on the guernsey.

Woodside are just using my beloved club to try and greenwash their image. Freo has always been a club with a great social conscious. We started doing a welcome to country early. We embraced ALFW. We embraced being called Walyalup. This sponsorship deal does not align with that proud tradition. Piss off Woodside and stop using something we love to aid your destruction of our climate.

Freo need to move on from this sort of sponsorship

We need to have a positive company representing the Freo dockers. One that supports First Nations Communities, one that supports a liveable climate and one that is not using social status to continue to destroy our state.

Please leave this irresponsible company behind! It doesn’t deserve to benefit from the social capital an association with the Dockers provides.

Woodside is causing climate chaos and the destruction of our natural environment. Please give Woodside the boot if you value a safe future for your players!
