Statement: Jaidyn Stephenson

The AFL Players’ Association wishes to issue the following statement in relation to Collingwood player Jaidyn Stephenson.

Jaidyn has acknowledged that his decision to bet on AFL matches was a gross error of judgement, for which he has been sanctioned accordingly.

This is a harsh yet valuable lesson for the 20-year-old, and serves as an important reminder to other AFL players, and the broader industry, about the rules and regulations around betting on AFL matches.

Jaidyn has our full support through his suspension and beyond.
