AFLW Club Membership breaks all-time record

The AFL is pleased to announce a new all-time AFLW Club membership record of 75,568 AFLW members. 

The 75,568 number surpasses the record of 48,712 that was set for Season Six. The Season Seven total is 55% per cent growth season on season.

Since Season Five (2021) the industry has seen 193% growth in AFLW Membership sales (25,782 AFLW Members in Season Five).

17 of the 18 clubs achieved AFLW Membership records with Sydney Swans (7,757), Adelaide Crows (6,706) and Geelong Cats (5,938) the top three clubs.

All four expansion clubs – Sydney Swans, Hawthorn, Essendon and Port Adelaide ranked in the Top 8 clubs for membership in Season Seven.

“It has truly been a unique year – two seasons, a new CBA, four new clubs, we took matches to places we have never been before and with it came new fans, more members and more people engaged in our competition than ever before.” AFL EGM Customer and Commercial Kylie Rogers said.

“We have a great, great competition, one that is going from strength to strength and on behalf of the AFL we thank every single person that watched, attended, and bought a membership to support their club,

“The passion for AFLW on and off the field is unmatched in national women’s sport competitions across the country. This passion is a powerful tool, and we must continue to harness it for good and celebrate the difference, the uniqueness and the joy that is AFLW football.

“Sunday’s NAB AFLW Grand Final, at the brand new and best purpose-built facility in Queensland is a fitting way to cap off a wonderful year. A finale for the season, a debut for the ground and without doubt the two best teams all season vying for the Premiership.”
