Things are finally looking good for soccer in Australia. Will the good crowds continue though? I was reading the other day that Sydney FC is already feeling a drop in crowds.


"One in every 24 Australians is now a member of an AFL club, a sign that the national reach of Australian football has never been greater," League CEO Gillon McLachlan said.

QLD Roar are doing well in the crowd stakes aswell.

I hope it all works but have grave fears. Soccer in aus needs to jump a few more levels to make it truly worth spectating. One level up just doesnt do it for me.

Problem will always be the best Aussie players choosing to play overseas. Still the current A-League format is much more enticing than the previous NSL. The fact the competition doesn't compete with the AFL or NRL should help too.
