Football is the biggest sport in Sydney I know is sounds wrong because of thugby Ligue but the sport has had a rich background in these parts the success of Marconi and the Socceroos that have come out of western Sydney to play in big leagues in Europe.And then the eventual upbringing of The Western Sydney Wanderers FC but the downfall of rugby league in Sydney has given football an advantage of building for the future. Football dominates the school sports and sport in whole of Sydney.One day we will become the countries main sport but it's starts off with grassroots that's the important bit

yet MVFC has the biggest crowds year in and year out? 

there are more actually football fans in Victoria then any other state the crowds both the HAL and Socceroos kills any other states attendance  the problem is most of those fans follow AFL as well due to the massive push in the media to support it and massive push AGAINST football 

these Kangaroos can play football -

Afl is an embarrassment to Australia China doesnt want it
But tbh I have a mate who lives in Melbourne and he says that football is big but not as big as it is in western Sydney. West Sydney is the heartland of football that's what he told me he said its big in Melbourne but not as big as it is in west Sydney.

Melbourne got its own problems maybe they should fix their African gang problem like we did here in Sydney

Lol regarding the gang problem that was pretty out of no where 

Ok ill move to blacktown and get stabbed there? 

Im sure Western Sydney has a footballing culture due to the fact more people play football in NSW then Melbourne but the proof is in the pudding Socceroos and HAL Melbourne attendance is 'significantly' better 

Even if you combine City and Victory to WSW and SFC this season Melbourne still have better attendance. 

Im not defending AFL but Greater Western Sydney Giants averaged 13k last session were as WSW averaged 12k.... heart least of football but there AFL side gets better crowds?

Both WSW and SFC are playing at temporary home grounds at the moment so its hardly fair to be comparing combined attendances this season or for the two seasons before this because WSW has played at its home ground for 3 seasons now.

To be honest, I'm pretty surprised by this.
Yes, it's only the first round, but ...



At the close of AFLW 2019 Round 1, AFLW attendances were down 20% (8,936) in total to 35,636 - despite an extra match, and down 36% (4,016) on average to 7,127, compared to round 1, 2018. And entry was free to all matches in both seasons.

In the previous years they would start off with carlton v collingwood which i think would get around 24k...cant really judge it until the end as they have held off throwing the bigger games in round 1

Last time 3 games were in Melbourne and 1 in Adeliade

This time 1 game in Melbourne (on a 40 degree day), 1 in Adelaide, 1 in Geelong, 1 in Tassie and 1 in Brisbane.

Attendances down, but the drop isn't like for like.

There has been no professional AFL game anywhere in the world for 4 months, the AFL  fans must be gagging for some action.

Brazil a beutiful country, people say it's bad and. That you'll get robbed your more Lilley to get robbed in the cbd of rio than in the favelas
But tbh nothing will take over Brazil's love for football I hope the many Brazilians who are residing and coming to Australia can bring that culture here. My uncle just got his citizenship down in Blacktown and he is black but he doesn't want to be described as an African more like a negro if anyone calls him African he denies it lol

Or they play in smaller stadiums? The adelaide v bulldogs game had 7,800 something but looked full. Hindmarsh had a few hundred less at the same time.

They get ludicrous funding and sponsorship - lots becaus eit;s PC to do so.

The more that's been put in $ wise the more it's fallen. From round one in the beginning crowds and viewers have waned. I can't see them charging ppl as the drop off would be huge

Just for clarification...
AFLW is the national women's Australian rules football competition.
WAFL is the West Australian Football League, WA's state league for Australian Rules Football.


To answer your question... In terms of how much they get paid to broadcast the league, no. AFLW gets $2.5 million per year. But that's on Channel 7, with all of the cross-media coverage and promotion that goes with it.
I dare say that your average punter who doesn't specifically follow either sport is more likely to know when a AFLW match is on than know when a W-League or even an A-League match is.

The point is, it costs the AFL sweetFA to run the AFLW. It’s almost completely covered by sponsorship.

Same with that gaudy horror show that is AFLX - 100% covered by sponsorship. It doesn’t cost them a zack.

So they can afford to keep doing it

And then they’re making more money off Victory and City who play derby games at the AFL’s stadium.

As for the WAFL - Channel 7 in Perth broadcast all eighteen matches.  They had a three year deal with MacDonalds underwriting the $1 million cost which ended this year so the WAFL are looking for a new sponsor.

There's only 18 matches in the WAFL?

Do you really mean a match of the week over 18 rounds, or I'm misinformed?

Both WSW and SFC are playing at temporary home grounds at the moment so its hardly fair to be comparing combined attendances this season or for the two seasons before this because WSW has played at its home ground for 3 seasons now.

im comparing last season...

it being free might have something to do with it...

Also it has been marketed to death, i can honestly see no one coming after the novelty wears off. The AFLW is riding on fans of clubs that are pre-existing. No one really gives a single f*** about the AFLW but many people care about there CLUB ie people care about Geelong F.C so they will go and support the club regardless it is called building a fan base. 

It is what a suggested the HAL do with the W-league the W-league should of been implemented after 30-40 years of the HAL onces clubs has strong established fan bases.  

The AFL has done a good job with the AFLW so far but i dont think it will last because the quality of football is terrible

At the moment yes.  Nine teams 18 rounds - I can't work out how they get the extra two rounds in. 

Go figure.

New team (West Coast) from this year.

BROADCAST FEATURES (For 2017 season)

  • All clubs will be featured on television by Round 10.
  • Each club will have at least 1 x televised home game in the first 13 broadcasts.

  • Floating fixtures are scheduled between Rounds 18 to 23 to be finalised mid-year based on team performance.
  • No WAFL broadcast fixtures will go head to head with AFL content on the 7 Network in 2017.
