The NRL has agreed to look into it, the rest is paper talk.

also an interesting take.

NRL AND AFL dont currently pay tax.

Would bringing in investors or part owners make this nil and void.

Where the Organisation would need to pay TAX

The afl is not for profit so no tax to be paid obviously. I think the funds distributed to the “partner” would then be taxed yes?

Well only if it made a profit and as a not for profit it wouldn’t I would guess. I’m unclear if distributions to investors would come from a set amount they had to pay them ... thus a cost like wages.... or if they were required to generate profit (thus no longer nfp) to distribute earnings.

"We've had some wonderful NRL seasons in recent times and just when a lot of people thought this year’s competition wouldn't go ahead, WHAM, the season has the best ratings ever – the best of the best," he said.

"Peter V'landys and Andrew Abdo have led the way at League Central, and we are proud to partner them at Fox League. This Thursday night it's the Eels and the Storm. How about that! This game just keeps giving."

The post-COVID season return saw round three generate the biggest audience for an NRL round in Foxtel history, while the round six clash between the Roosters and the Eels recorded the company's biggest ever NRL audience with a cumulative average of 507,000.

based on last two days releases - and a grand total of 8 matches - AFL ratings on Kayo/Fox Now/Fox Go are about 52% of its overall Fox ratings. Its 38% for the NRL. Not really enough data to be conclusive though. Data: https://theage.com.au/sport/afl/footy-f ... 55nxu.html and https://adnews.com.au/news/foxtel-wins- ... of-the-nrl


So fox ratings between AFL and NRL are probably closer than the ratings only suggest. AFL fans seem to have adopted Kayo over fox at a greater proportion

You need to re read the article , your STV, despite the lockdowns and prime time viewing is up just 10 % .

Sounded like Fox were using cumulative numbers, would this be right :hmm:

FOXTEL HAS RELEASED NEW VIEWER DATA HIGHLIGHTING THE SUCCESS OF THE AFL’S RECENT FESTIVAL OF FOOTY AND MID-YEAR NRL SEASON.

Fox Footy live audiences for AFL Rounds 9 to 12 were up 14% compared with the previous eight rounds. The festival of footy, which featured 33 matches over 20-days, was up 59% compared to the same rounds in 2019.

Released for the first time, the data covers traditional Foxtel set-top box customers together with streaming platforms Foxtel Now, Foxtel GO and the fast-growing Kayo.

It highlights massive fan engagement with the 2020 AFL season so far with live audiences up +34% compared to the first 12 rounds of the 2019 season. Average audiences for Foxtel are up 10%, and Foxtel Now, Foxtel GO and Kayo audiences are up over 200%. Foxtel also notes audiences for live FOX Footy-produced matches are up 44% so far this season

Shorter match durations and the AFL’s scheduling with fewer match overlaps and more standalone prime time matches have help boost ratings for Fox Footy.

Seven said its coverage across rounds 9-12 reached 4.7 million people nationally and 3.69 million in metro markets.

The network reported average national audiences of 702,000, up 18 per cent on the same time last year, and an average metro audience of 538,000, up 24.2 per cent on the same time last year.

In Melbourne, audiences had leapt a staggering 37.9 per cent, while in Brisbane – where the Victorian clubs are housed in hubs and the majority of matches are played – there had been a significant leap of 24.6 per cent in a rugby-league market the AFL is keen to win.

Seven had strong ratings for Thursday night matches but there was a no year-on-year comparison.

However, a detailed breakdown of the other major timeslots has shown a 23 per cent lift nationally and 27.7 lift in metro regions on a Friday night, a 35.4 per cent lift nationally and 35 per cent metro increase on Saturday nights, while Sunday afternoon matches are up 17.8 nationally and 23.8 in metro regions.

NRL fans have also been tuning in during COVID, with audiences on Fox League, up 18% compared to the corresponding Rounds 1 to 14 of the 2019 season.

2020 is now the number one rating NRL season ever for the Foxtel Group with audiences, up over 150% across its set-top box and internet subscription businesses.

The post-COVID season return saw Round 3 generate the biggest audience for an NRL round in Foxtel history, while the Round 6 clash between the Roosters and the Eels recorded the largest NRL audience of all-time with a cumulative average of 507,000.

With many fans unable to attend the footy in person because of COVID-19 restrictions, viewers have sought out Fox Footy and Fox League to keep up with the footy action.

Foxtel recently reported its sports streaming platform Kayo now has 590,000 active subscribers (542,000 paying). The result was a significant increase on the February figure of 370,000 paying subscribers and came after a global sports shut down due to COVID.

Foxtel Sports Executive Director Steve Crawley said:

“What a ripper result for the game. Our team at Fox Footy have been delighted to bring a unique season to more viewers than ever before, and the AFL could not have been a better partner during these times.

“We are incredibly excited about the next instalment of the Footy Frenzy which begins with a Thursday-night doubleheader on 27 August featuring the Hawks and Bombers at Adelaide Oval, followed by the Tigers and Eagles in a blockbuster at Metricon Stadium.”

“We’ve had some wonderful NRL seasons in recent times and just when a lot of people thought this year’s competition wouldn’t go ahead, WHAM, the season has the best ratings ever – the best of the best.”

“Peter V’landys and Andrew Abdo have led the way at League Central, and we are proud to partner them at Fox League.”
