More AFLW Media Coverage needed now
We love our AFLW and want all media outlets to put as much effort into AFLW reporting as they do for the AFL. Especially since the AFL practice matches started, AFLW has taken a back seat in the sports media, even though they are playing for Premiership points.
Why is this important?
Since its first season in 2017. AFLW has grown to 14 clubs and will continue to expand with all 18 Clubs to have an AFLW team by 2023. Over 1 MILL fans have attended live AFLW games and crowds and TV viewing numbers continue to grow. The female participants rates across the country have risen to over 17%. There is very little coverage from media outlets. We want this to change. Representation is important.
