i like the incentive of kids go free.

they are the ones that will propel the game in the future..

If i were the NRL or AFL

Games outside of finals and marque games or close to sell outs.
Kids go free all year.

Australia’s Game confirmed again today as No. 1

Not that there was ever any doubt.

Lots more money all round with Tassie to come and further development funds for NSW/ACT and QLD, to see the game grow even further. Well done Gillon.

The $4.5 billion over seven years from 2025 - which is a long way ahead of what the NRL receives from Foxtel and Nine - will allow the AFL to keep 18 clubs solvent, pay players - men and women - and to keep the game affordable for members.

The AFL can continue to fund Greater Western Sydney and Gold Coast at well above the other clubs, can keep the smaller Victorian clubs competitive with the monster teams, ensure that AFLW moves to full professionalism and spend more money on the game’s development in NSW and Queensland.

Gillon McLachlan’s last broadcast deal will have all manner of consequences, not only for Australian football but for cricket and conceivably tennis and the rugby codes. The AFL has entrenched its position as the country’s most powerful sporting code, in commercial terms; there will be fewer dollars for cricket, in all likelihood.

The case for a Tasmanian team will likely strengthen following this deal, since the majority of existing clubs won’t be as concerned about a 19th team draining the coffers.

Privately, the AFL is talking about using the extra cash to help ramp up footy in the northern states. In truth, it’s a concession they’ve made to Foxtel, in the knowledge that the free to air ratings aren’t great in Sydney, in particular, anyway.



TIMELINE
AFL broadcast rights this century

2002- 06: $500 million (Nine, 10, Foxtel)

The rights had been held by Seven since 1987. But in a major change to the landscape, matches were jointly broadcast by Channel Nine, Channel 10, and pay TV provider Foxtel. Tim Lane (Channel Nine, 10), Eddie McGuire (Nine) and Steve Quartermain (Foxtel) were key commentators.

2007-11: $780 million (Seven, 10, Fox Sports, Austar)
The AFL signed a five-year, $780 million deal with networks Seven and 10, with Foxtel paying Seven and 10 $315.5 million over the five years plus $10 million per year in contra advertising for exclusive rights to four games a round plus replay rights to all games, including finals. These games streamed through Foxtel and Austar via Fox Sports.

2012-16: $1.3 billion (Seven, Fox Sports, Telstra)
The AFL signed a five-year, $1.3 billion TV rights deal with Channel Seven, pay TV giant Foxtel and Telstra.

2017-22: $2.5 billion (Seven, Fox Sports, Telstra)
The AFL signed a $2.5 billion, six-year deal, to expire in 2022, that was eventually renegotiated during the pandemic.

2023-24: $946 million (Seven, Foxtel)
The AFL signed a two-year extension with Seven West Media and Foxtel in an aggregate of $946 million over 2023 and 2024. Foxtel pays the larger share and broadcasts an average of five and a half games per round - the TV giant is also increasingly transitioning matches to its growing streaming arm, Kayo - while Seven averages three and a half games each week. Seven has exclusive rights to the grand final.

2025-32 (Seven, Foxtel)
In 2022, four of Australia’s biggest media companies, Nine Entertainment, Foxtel, Seven West Media and Channel 10/Paramount, enter a multibillion-dollar bidding war for the rights to broadcast and stream AFL games from 2025. The result is a mammoth seven-year deal with the incumbents, Seven and Foxtel.

"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.

No need for any doubts about which code is number one.

Even NRL chiefs say the AFL is the dominant sporting code.
