RFC management must be delighted by the number and the revenue generation. Lets hope they invest the proceeds wisely and to the long term benefit of the club.

It wasn't that long ago when it was thought you were doing well to crack 50k. Goes to show how big our game is when compared to these NRL membership numbers. I'm not sure what sort of deals there are to pump up the GWS numbers (assuming their is as their home crowds don't reflect the numbers that well?) but if they were an NRL club they would be considered to have strong support.

GWS's membership would be split between (Western) Sydney and Canberra. They average crowds of 10k at both their 'home' venues. The Swans are the biggest football club of any code in Sydney based on membership and average crowds. Virtually twice as big as the next which would be the Rabbitohs. It's TV ratings where the NRL overwhelmingly dominates up there.

NRL clubs especially in Sydney have Leagues Clubs to funnel (pok-ies) revenue into their respective NRL clubs. WP would know better than me but I believe clubs like Cronulla who have a low membership also own their own home ground (thus they own a multi-million dollar asset). Add the $$$ from the NRL's TV rights deal and that keeps their clubs afloat rather than their (low) membership bases.

More a watch sport on TV culture up there compared to Melbourne unless there's a one-off 'event' where it's trendy to attend en masse. So State of Origin or Beckham's allstars will sell-out 80k ANZ stadium, yet a top of the table NRL or A-league game will be lucky to draw 15-20k. As you would know dwaino, Victory  :thumbsup has a higher membership and crowds than most NRL clubs. It's the culture of Melbourne (the city) to be a member of your football club (irrespective of the code) and attend regular weekly games.

When I lived in Brisbane everyone I worked with were fanatical Broncos yet never liked the idea of handing over any money to buy a membership or attend a game. They’d rather watch it on TV like you said. That’s the difference between us and them, we’re willing to shell out our own coin for our club. I used to rile them up by saying I wouldn’t pay for such a poxy game either.
