Sponsorship Problem?

The Australian Financial Review has today published a story showing that the AFL is - by far - the wealthiest sporting code in the country. For those who don't have online access, John Stenshot's story claims the AFL had revenue in 2017 of $650 million and a profit of $44.8 million. These figures compare with:

NRL - revenue of $354m and a loss of $3.7m

Cricket Australia - revenue of $313m and profit of $50m

Rugby Australia (2016 figures) - revenue of $129m and profit of $3.7m

FFA - revenue of $105m and a loss of $0.3m

and still clubs have [censored] stadium deals in Victoria. The AFL is swimming in money ? ? and should be ashamed of itself. 

Gill and his Henchmen will all get bonuses

He’s so odd. He started off the same on Big Footy as a GWS supporter. All positive and the like, then when posters begun to challenge him he lost it and eventually was permanently banned for trolling.

Well done to the AFL but we know that it is fundamentally dependent upon the TV deal.

There are only so many times you can go to that well.

Oh yes Ethan. The Doctor has been around for a long time. This latest sojourn is by far his longest incarnation at DLand. 

Maybe it is the final place he can log onto...

Good point - its now time to get the clubs to operate as a business in the game of AFL football & in the world of sports entertainment. Might upset many but it is what it is.

I'm fairly certain that game day revenues in total (not exactly sure what this includes) are about the same as TV revenue, so whilst TV is huge attendances also contribute a lot.

Whats going on, its the eve of the season and we only have two major sponsors not including iSelect..... One with a market capitalisation of over $40bn USD and the other a global automotive company. I miss Energy Watch.....

I hope they treat sponsors better than members. I  Renewed 2 weeks ago and have received nothing and when I enquired was told it takes 4 - 6 weeks for the pack to be sent. FMD. Combined with the poor communication about Casey it is nowhere nearly good enough. The club take their membership for granted and once they’ve got your money no more communication until they want more.

just to be fussy - we actually have 9 major sponsors.   zurich and iselect are principal sponsors

p.s. just a suspicion but i think the order (see below) reflects the $ value of the sponsorship. Note where infinit slots in
