Club Statement

Sturt Football Club understands that the SANFL has launched an investigation into crowd behaviour and claims of abusive language during the ANZAC Day Grand Final rematch.

Sturt Football Club will not comment until the investigation has concluded.

Certain quotes attributed to the General Manager Business, Sue Dewing in a Facebook post on the “Ken Oath’s port adelaide true believers” page on Thursday 26 April and later tweeted are inaccurate and misleading.

Ms. Dewing refutes any suggestion that she does not treat seriously allegations of racist or sexist behaviour, whether on the football field or elsewhere.

Ms. Dewing also refutes any suggestion that racist or sexist conduct can in any circumstance be justified.

The Facebook post and tweets are defamatory of Ms. Dewing and have been referred to her solicitors.
