2021 - Rugby Union TV Ratings - Super Rugby etc

Post by Beaussie »

The Herald reports about 150,000 viewers whilst Media Week has 97,000 tuning into the Super Rugby launch on 9Gem on Friday night. :hmm:
While Stan work out a solution, both Nine and Rugby Australia executives were thrilled with the audience that tuned in for the Reds’ record-breaking win against the Waratahs.

The Herald has learned the match was watched by about 200,000 people across 9Gem and Stan Sport. About 150,000 of those viewers tuned in on Nine’s secondary channel and the other 50,000 watched via Stan’s new streaming arm.

Combined, the numbers tripled the total viewership for the corresponding match in the first round last year.

“Friday night’s launch of Rugby on both Stan Sport and 9Gem was hugely successful, exceeding all expectations,” Nine director of sport Brent Williams said.

Whatever way you look at it,

through two access points, GEM AND STAN
to only get 200k for the opening game between the two biggest states for Union, is not good.

12k in attendance also, Ouch.

Worrying early signs in Sydney for rugby and new broadcaster Nine/Stan?
The Waratahs show isn’t rating and, in 2021, that’s the big problem

Having invested in the game as a growth project the state of the Sydney market is self-evidently a concern for them. And it should be. In Australia’s biggest metro market, just 29,000 Sydneysiders watched the Waratahs lose to the Reds in round one on free-to-air TV.

lol Fred

i can safely say you are in a bubble..

SUPER RUGBY TOURNAMENT was suspended March Last Year. 2020

Australian teams have not played NZ or South African teams since (that is 14 months now)

Since than NZ has played Domestic only in NZ

And Australia has done the same thing.

A tournament between NZ and AUS Is maybe starting in a 1-2 months depending... international borders.
