A Roy Morgan Single Source shows that more than 550,000 Australian women aged 14+ now play one of the four main football codes. Female participation in Australian Football has increased by 21,000 over the last year, to 176,000, while nearly 400,000 women now play Soccer. Meanwhile, 67,000 Australian women now play Rugby League and 32,000 play Rugby Union. The survey also shows that 207,000 women in New South Wales now play football of one sort or another, followed by Victoria with 139,000 and Queensland with 89,000. Roy Morgan CEO Michele Levine says the increasing interest in women’s sport of all types including the football codes provides an increasingly lucrative platform for companies looking to capture a share of this emerging market while it goes through a significant growth phase.
