NSW and QLD footy fans ensure strong ratings continue
in the 2020 Toyota AFL Premiership Season
Strong growth in television audiences in New South Wales and Queensland have ensured the 2020 Toyota AFL Premiership Season has returned with outstanding ratings as the season continues to unfold.
After five rounds, New South Wales and Queensland audiences have risen by 16 per cent on free-to-air television against 2019 figures, with a 38 per cent increase in the Brisbane audience alone as against 2019, as the Lions and SUNS both occupy positions in the top eight.
Overall, national TV ratings for the AFL competition are up a staggering 21 per cent on 2019, reflecting the increased interest in the game and the closeness of the competition.
The Brisbane Lions’ Saturday night game against the West Coast Eagles in Round Three saw the second-highest free-to-air audience in Brisbane for a home and away game since 2014. It also marked the highest free-to-air audience for a home and away game since 2011.
Thursday night marquee matches have been particularly strong, averaging 1.2 million fans per game, 16 per cent ahead of last year, while Friday night audiences have increased nine per cent against last year’s figures to reach an average of 1.1 million fans per game.

The email just stated it depends on what the AFL and clubs want to do. However i just scored tickets to Port v GWS as well. My friend who is a port member secured them, im not sure if there are public tix though, as i said before its so hard to find info.I emailed them directly. Gabba had the same response, i think it depends on the AFL.
condolencesMy mate is a collingwood supporter living in sydney, reckons he found out they are only selling tickets to Sydney based pies members at the moment. This is strange as i wouldn't think there would be 5k of pies members in sydney anyway. Therefore maybe later in the week sales will go to the general public.
