Perth could accomodate a team, both the eagles and freo are financially secure the eagles the is not other team close.

Both team are well supported but WA is an afl mad state with population expected to double over the next few decades

Tassie I just can’t see happening as their is no real economic or population growth and vastly spread out

Sydney would be the next team imo but wouldn’t be for another decade allowing GWS to mature and grow a stable fan base


Australian sporting sponsorship
AFL excess of $50m
A league $30 million plus
ARU $27 million
NRLOL $25 million

Number 1 in half a country. With Soccer killing AFL in participation numbers in every demographic.

Not to mention no hope of international growth for AFL. A tried and tested failure in New Zealand and China.

Not too many sources in that.

Anyway, I think Perth is the go and finals will be on Qld. There really is no long term benefit in on off games in non traditional states. Look at SoO ... When played in Melbourne gets a heap of media that week but long term no real growth in rl in that state where it is basically invisible outside the Storm. No growth of any significance in grassroots with 1 leaugue covering the whole state ... like 13 teams. So having a one off gf on qld don’t think will add too much to grow afl ... which has a pretty high profile anyway at grass roots.

I think it should be in QLD for one big reason.

QLD saved the AFL season.
