A Roy Morgan Single Source survey has found that the Sydney Swans boast 1.204 million supporters, making it the most popular Australian Football League club. The Swans have gained 104,000 supporters in 2017, an increase of 9.5% since the team’s 2016 Grand Final appearance. Essendon is the most widely supported Victorian club with 671,000 supporters, while traditional Victorian powerhouse Collingwood has slipped to fourth on the supporter ladder with 663,000 supporters. Roy Morgan Research executive chairman Gary Morgan says Victoria remains the beating heart of the AFL with nearly 3 million supporters buying just under 570,000 AFL club memberships in 2017 – a conversion rate of 19.3% of supporters to members.
