Dear Carlton supporters,

We believe it is important for you that we clarify the facts in relation to a newspaper report today.

The Australian newspaper linked Carlton and a former employee to the ASADA case. The AFL has confirmed that it does not have any issue with the Carlton Football Club in relation to this matter.

The Australian did not contact the Club for comment before printing this story.

At the time that allegations were first aired against Essendon, Carlton instigated a thorough review of its high performance program. The results of this review were independently verified and showed that there were zero grounds for concern.
