CHANGES OVER TIME
Australian Rules football remained the highest attended sporting event in 2009-10 (16%), as it was in 2005-06 (16%). Horse racing remained the second most attended sporting event, however, the attendance rate reduced significantly to 11% in 2009-10 from 13% in 2005-06. Rugby league and motor sports both attracted over one million attendees in 2005-06 and 2009-10. The attendance rate at rugby league remained the same in 2009-10 (9%) as it was in 2005-06 (9%), whereas the attendance rate at motor sports reduced to 8% in 2009-10 from 9% in 2005-06 (Table 8).
Other sporting events where the change in attendance rate was statistically significant were outdoor cricket (reducing from 5% in 2005-06 to 4% in 2009-10), rugby union (reducing from 4% in 2005-06 to 3% in 2009-10) and harness racing (reducing from 3% in 2005-06 to 2% in 2009-10). The only significant increase in attendance rate was for outdoor soccer which increased from 4% (0.6 million) in 2005-06 to 5% (0.9 million) in 2009-10 (Table 8).
