Sunday’s TV ratings for the football codes have been revealed and the news is alarming for the A-League. 



One of the competition’s biggest rivalries, Sydney v Western Sydney, could only garner an average of 61,000 viewers on Fox Sports. 

Conversely, the AFL Women’s match between GWS and Adelaide drew an average of 62,000 viewers while the JLT Community games on Fox Footy between Adelaide and Fremantle (84,000) and West Coast and Port Adelaide (75,000) also comfortably outrated the Sydney-Wanderers clash.

If that’s how the numbers look in the AFL’s pre-season, the ratings war doesn’t augur well for the A-League when the AFL’s premiership season kicks off.
