The Ausplay survey came out at some point in November. As far as I can tell there was not even a press release

What it shows is another jump in the number of Club Australian football participants...

In year on year terms, organised football participation of kids under 15 increased by 5.1%, soccer fell by 7.5% in the same period. Outside of NSW, signficantly more kids play organised football than soccer now

I would like to know the participant breakdown for each respective state. I would be confident in saying Australian Rules Football would be the No.1 participated sport in VIC, SA, WA and NT maybe even Tas. Soccers participation is enormous in NSW and would make up a strong proportion of there total number.

Here are the data by state

It varies by state. It should be remembered that the soccer also includes organsied futsal numbers

The Age Michael Fowler 15.2.19

Fowler writes
" Since 2010, there have been an increase of 58 Victorian female teams to 1003 in 2018, with females now comprising 32% of overall participation in Australia".
(The "58 teams", referred to above, were the total female jnr & senior Club comp. teams in 2010- ie not including the 2010 booming female school comp. teams).

As AFL Victoria reported 747 female jnr & adult Club teams for season 2017, this represents a Vic. female club team increase of an excellent 35%. The avalanche continues!
The GR AF facilities crisis in Melb. (& Sydney & Adelaide- not sure about SEQld), caused by the female AF boom, will become a major issue in the near future.

It is odd that the AFL is releasing selected GR AF participation data to some journalists only. Usually, all the data is released publicly by late Nov. or early Dec.- surely it must be released soon.
