Latest stadium development at Catalans. Expected to be in use for next home game against Huddersfield week after next. Permanent fixture as all home games televised live by Bein Sport. Should prove a popular attraction.

amazes me that more stadiums in UK are not built with big screens. Every one in Australia is, but hey, Australians are a little more passionate about live sport

At long last the Dragons fans will be able to see why refs keep persecuting their team! ;)

just going from the crowd attendances they get for their sport. I wish we had it the same way here.

If often think when watching a game on telly that if only they had a telly in the stands i would pay to go to the game and watch it on a telly rather than sit at home and watch it on the telly.

sure, one sport. While Aussies travel in droves to watch multiple sports like cricket, NRL, super 15, AFL (more than the lot), football.

 

and to liOnhead who seems to have no idea about hospitality and improving the experience for live supporters, ever been at the ground wanting to view a replay of something contentious but cant because the game is not covered on Sky and the club doesn't have its own screen?

 

while your at it, lets take all home creature comforts away from the grounds. No seats, no food, no drink, no scoreboard.

Hull and Huddersfield have more up to date screens now don't they? I understand this is probably from the football side of things but do these two show the game or is it just Leeds (and now Catalan).

 

And I think it's purely financial, statties.

Probably because in Australia every game is broadcast Live or delayed "as live", with multiple camera angles making it worthwhile. The Non-Sky-Live ones here are covered by one or two for the various highlights shows.

Exactly this. The Brits gag for live sport. Just not as much for the one we all would like them to!

Does that mean they are more passionate about live sport, or that they care more for a greater variety of sports? What are the sum of the attendences to live sporting events in Australia vs those in the UK over a whole year? That's the only way to back up your assertation.

very good point. I don't think every old Aussie stadia had big screens, but certainly any built since 1980 had.

Good question, perhaps the below figures will also have something to do with the entertainment on offer at these fixtures also?

 

On average attendances Australia is in a different league. Top five supporter average leagues in each country:

 

Prem League: 35K

 

AFL: 33K

 

Championship: 18K

A League: 13K
 
Prem RU: 13K
Super Rugby: 22K
 
SL: 11K

NRL: 17K

 
20-20: 7K

Big Bash: 18K

 
Champ 1: 7K

 

Basketball: 5K
 
That is a difference of 17K average in attendances in favour of Aussies. That almost the average crowd size of England's second strongest competition.
 
Then of course there is the size of population to consider.

you find them, I think that averages are the best way to back up my argument and that is why I posted them. When you do find them, you will find that per capita the evidence is even more in favour of the Aussies

Actually, I had a quick look. I normalised for teams outside of AU or England in the leagues. It does come out in favour of the Aussies, but not by as much as you might think. It works out that 50% of English people go and watch a game, whereas 60% of Aussies do.

That does not show they are more passionate just simply shows a certain number of people attending live sport. Football fans alone in UK and mainland Europe show a far greater passion than Australians do. One of the few times Australians seem to get passionate at RL in Australia is during SOO but little else.

Then of course you must cosider The NPower Championship Average of around 17k accross 24 teams, League One Average of around 8k accross 24 teams and League Two Average of around 6k accross 24 teams.

Those  attendances when added to those of the Premiership average of 36k would probably outstrip all sports in Australia!
