We know state of origin is the most important event to attend in Perth but not sure about tv viewers. Like I expected the Afl to win for highest attendances is expect that state of origin would come nowhere near a west coast finals match for example...but on that wintery rainy eve a few Sunday nights ago the people of Perth showed us what they see as most important so who knows!!
State of Origin 2019 PERTH Figures are below>>

Metro Only

GAME 1 >> 118k

GAME 2 >> 167k (Game in Perth) 60k at Ground

Game 3 >> 122k

(great figures)

Old money swans can only dream of those numbers in much bigger Sydney.

Comparing fortnightly games to a one of marquee event. Desperate much.

i think he is comparing a rugby league game... yes being Origin football, but a rugby league event
NSW v QLD in Perth rating this high..

If we compare the Swans for example are lucky to get 40k Average in Sydney per game on FTA

If you x that by 22 games = 880k FTA for the entire season.

Perth for example got 407 for 3 games..

Putting the Swans popularity into prospective

Very tidy analysis there Leeroy. I think we could also further proportion the tv viewers based on Sydney having a much bigger population than Perth and rugby league would come up looking even shinier on this one.

I’d like to know how much viewers might watch west coast in a final versus some melb side... anyone know this or able to give me a link to where I could lookup ??

I’m sure they could play the super bowl in Perth and it would sell out, rate it’s arse off across the country etc. but it would hardly represent popularity. And if someone supporting grid iron got on her trying to say grid iron was more popular than Australian rules I think they would be rightly ridiculed.

I’d put any money that if the gridiron rocked up in Perth on a wintery rainy Sunday eve there’d be way less than what origin produced a few weeks ago. Actually if gridiron rocked up on even a sunny arvo they still would fail to topple SOO.

A west coast home final on a sunny day can’t even beat origin and on average that event happens less than once a year :(/

I think the whole point of the argument is>>

It is a Rugby League Game, And what some games of Rugby League can achieve
In Perth without even having a team.. which adds value to the Tv Deal.

Perth seem to produce better figures than Melbourne with a much lower population
and time zone difference, all this without a team.

I think my point is... as a one off marquee event of course it gets viewers and crowds. My point is rl is nearly as foreign as nfl in Perth and Melbourne etc yet if the nfl played their biggest game there it would get the same if not better figures. And this would be done without an nfl team.

I think you are forgetting that soo is an event. Like a gf, people tune in. It also has the advantage of being a novelty. Look at the weekly ratings for instance.

Swans play every other week. Play the afl grand final in Sydney and see what happens. What are the best figures for the sswans... say a gf they were in. I guess it may not be as high but higher than their weekly ratings. And the SoO I feel is a whole different thing ... it’s on a different level again.

I’m sure if they played soo every week the rating would be similar :). Comparing two different things completely

In saying that, it’s certainly better than no interest in fact, it couldn’t have been better so defiantly a success.

lets take out that it is a Event and look at it that it is RUGBY LEAGUE>>
the NRL are lucky enough to have..
The product is sold to the broadcasters.

Which can Rate half of what Swans Get in a city 3 times the size from 3 games to 22

simply amazing>> and puts the swans viewing numbers into perspective

(again Perth Interests in the premiership would increase if it had a team in the comp)
