SUMMARY

Over two-fifths of the Australian population aged 15 years and over (43% or 7.6 million) reported that they had attended a sporting event during the 12 months prior to interview in 2009-10. The highest attendance rates were reported for Australian Rules football (16%) and horse racing (11%). The attendance rate at sporting events in 2009-10 (43%) was similar to that in 2005-06 (44%), with the same sports remaining the most popular to attend (Tables 1, 3, 7 and 8).
