With public holiday the day after, sunday night is basically saturday nightIn 2011 the NRL had their Grand Final at 5 or 5.30pm, maybe 2010 as well? Best time slot IMO out of all the GFs I have watched over both codes. The Channel 9 boss cracked the sads and it went back to 7.30pm.
Don't a lot of them watch through kayo these days? I did hear the nrl grand final is struggling to sell out as usual. Not sure if that's correct or not the stadium only holds 50k in a so called league heartland. Tickets are only $50 or so too. Again not sure if that's correct.
Well the AFL seems to think it did cross the 4 million mark.Almost 4 million average last night
The AFL is pleased to announce last night's 2021 Toyota AFL Grand Final between Melbourne Demons and Western Bulldogs attracted a national average audience of 4.11m.
That would include digital streaming presumably
It did when 7plus (197,000) is included.
That is impressive! It will be interesting to see how many the SANFL gets todayI think there was a graphic on the tv saying today’s WAFL grand final had a crowd in the 29,000’s.
But I didn’t get it exactly as I was plastering a wall at the time.
With the first half, severely affected by rain.
Edit: 29,879. Largest since 2002.
