Australian Sports Fans Are Passionate But They Cannot Support All The Sporting Competitions

Sports stadiums are the setting for some of the most emotional and memorable sports performances. Companies take advantage of the opportunities available whenever there is a crowd. They put up tents to display different sports products to gain the awareness of potential customers. If you are looking for a tent, it makes sense to compare marquee hire prices on the Gold Coast to find the one that will suit the budget.

In the past, cricket dominated Australia’s summer sports. There was a bit of tennis and golf for variety. Today the busiest time of the year in the world’s competitive sporting markets is summer because of the growth of women sports and football seasons including cricket and basketball.

AFLW competitions have already begun while men and women rugby will be starting in the coming week. People are also eagerly waiting for the Australian Open Tennis. Cricket on the other hand has been particularly hit hard in terms of live crowds and viewing figures.

This year, the Big Bash League expanded with 16 extra games and a new broadcast deal. However, it seems that the competition has lost some of its lustre. Crowd figures for the season have gone down by at least 20% at an average of 21,000 per match. Last year, crowd figures were 26,000 and 30,000 for the season before.

This year broadcast rights went to Fox Sports and Seven but the average BBL television audience for this season is down from last season. Fox Sports has an average of 195,000 per game while Seven has 694,000. Last year, Network Ten had an average of 969,000 views per match.

According to Steve Allen, an analyst of Fusion Media, broadcast figures for this summer’s cricket games are awful. Cricket Australia has acknowledged that there are problems and they are aware that growth would plateau with the increase in the number of matches.

There are sports stadiums that allow tents for businesses to display spots products and equipment. Before you order a tent, make sure to compare marquee hire prices on the Gold Coast to gain the best deal. Remember that the cheapest may not be the best. Always choose quality and excellent customer service.
