It makes sense that non-Vic teams are low on this, given that most of their games are simulcasted on 7 so they don't need Fox to watch them (in addition to teams like Gold Coast obviously having less fans in general). Therefore it is quite concerning that North Melbourne are so comfortably last on this. Very large gap between North and the next lowest Victorian team.

14 of Norths matches were either saturday or sunday games. Still its not a good number.

WITH LOCKED DOWN VICTORIANS EAGER TO WATCH AS MUCH AFL AS POSSIBLE, FOXTEL HAS CONFIRMED A NEW RECORD NUMBER OF SUBSCRIBERS FOR ITS SPORTS STREAMING BUSINESS KAYO.

Kayo has grown its paid subscriber base to just over 600,000 customers in September, a rise from 542,000 in August.

Across the entire business (pay-tv and online), Foxtel currently has just under 2 million sports subscribers, a 25-year high.

It would be interesting to see how many watch the AFL on KAYO!

All crowds for this season are now available on afltables.com.

For the matches where crowds were allowed, the season average was 6,719. I think this is a fantastic figure given how many matches were played at neutral venues and the heavily restricted nature of crowds.

A few interesting crowds worth noting:
- West Coast vs GWS, OS, R13 was the highest crowd of the year with 27,339.
- The highest crowd for two teams at a neutral venue was Collingwood vs Geelong, OS, R7 - 22,077.
- Collingwood (for their match against Carlton) also had the highest crowd for two interstate teams in Queensland - 9,033, G, R14.
- The highest crowd for the year at Metricon Stadium was not for a Gold Coast or even Brisbane match, rather Geelong vs Richmond, R17 - 7,061.
- The lowest crowd of the season was for Fremantle vs Port Adelaide, MS, R2 with 180.

All finals beside Saints v Dogs sold out in very quick time today.
Looks like only the southern half of the Gabba on sale for that match. Tickets are double the price of Storm v Eels down the road.

Tickets were $35 level 2 wing for me - neutral non club member. The NRL is $17.50?

$35.00 for a final is still cheap!
Absolutely. I got into both finals at the Gabba this weekend for $35. I've seen a lot of comments in various forums/socials on how expensive tickets are, i don't think people take the time to actually look into it. Every game i've attended this year in QLD has been capped at $30, great value.

There is also a stack of $35 tickets left to the saint v dogs game now and good viewing.

Us Victorian Tiger supporters couldn't go to last night's game "Lions V Tiges" but geez i was mighty impressed with the tiger support.
The lion's supporters too were making a lot of noise, the atmosphere was great for a 25k crowd.

Membership numbers in QLD - CH7 last night stated outside of the Lions, Richmond has the 2nd biggest membership in QLD

No ESS, Carl or Haw? I presume that’s only the top 8 remaining clubs?

Notwithstanding an impressive list. Surprised Richmond almost double Collingwood
