that could be true, but its a fixture that tends to bring in less fans,NlolRL wrote: ↑Tue Mar 23, 2021 7:41 pmas one-off Sunday and Monday night games they havent rated particularly high, but if they became a regular fixture they'd rate higher than early afternoon on the weekend.leeroy*NRL* wrote: ↑Tue Mar 23, 2021 6:07 pmdo you have figures from previous years comparing sunday night to saturday night.
i remember by memory yes AFL drawing low crowds in AFL standards for these two nights. Sunday & Monday Night
though i dont remember the ratings being that Huge either. maybe bigger than an afternoon.
but nothing to scream about.
overall if your going to get 30-40k more fans watching tv but 30-40% less fans attending i would always take the more fans
I guess it would be up to the AFL to do this, if they were willing to trial it for a few years
and build on Sunday Night or Monday Night it would most likely build year after year, but have early setbacks earlier on.
NRL had Monday Night Football for many years, it rated brilliant... though the crowd average was like 10-12k
and it became to close to Thursday Night football.
So they decided to Axe and Bring in more Thursday Games.
