Crikey readers were first introduced to the governance issues at RSL Victoria in last July when we summed up the controversial 2019 AGM.

There was a further update a month ago, after it became apparent the league was intending to sell off its Vasey RSL Care aged care division, a sale which would help it meet a $68 million pokies licence obligation to the Victorian government.

RSL Victoria has been bleeding cash during the COVID-19 shutdown, particularly due to the forced closure of its 52 pokies venue which normally extract more than $200 million a year from gamblers. It's the state’s third biggest pokies operator after Woolworths and Crown Melbourne.
