Thanks for that association football or world football is clearly the No 1 sport in Australia by a long way. Now just needs to convert that to corporate dollars for it to really take hold. The growth has been phenomenal and no w the Australian based sports AFL and NRL are reinventing themselves to try and keep up.
The problem is the same that it always has been, theres no money in participation figures. Corporates want the big events with the all the publicity to maximise exposure and benefits.
