Play it safe and fair — online and offline
eSafety and the Australian Football League have joined forces to tackle the important issue of online safety within the AFL community.
eSafety has signed a new agreement with the AFL to help improve online safety for AFL players, fans and the broader community and raise awareness of the steps Australians can take to #PlayItFairOnline. eSafety will also provide online safety training to the AFL and its clubs and advice on best practice approaches to keeping people safe online.
The agreement strengthens our ongoing partnership and will support the AFL in continuing to promote online safety through its channels and staying up to date with latest developments in the industry.
The partnership has also seen the release of a set of easy-to-follow guidelines developed by eSafety to encourage players and fans to be respectful online.
Just as players back their teammates on the field, we all have a role to play in supporting our teams and communities online.
Watch the #PlayItFairOnline video from the AFL and eSafety and hear from players about how to stay safe online and report online abuse.
