AFLW membership has increased again after its fourth season, with an all-time record of 20,849 members (up 48.9%) signing up.
The majority of the growth came via expansion teams with three new clubs topping the charts in West Coast Eagles (3,318), Richmond (2,656) and St Kilda (2,299).
Thank you, #GenW ??#AFLW memberships reached an all-time record in 2020. That's a 48.9% increase for the year with three new clubs - @eaglesaflw, @RichmondWomens and @stkildafcw - taking out the top three. pic.twitter.com/emUmDf9uAV— AFL Women's (@aflwomens) September 9, 2020
"In a challenging year for everyone, the clubs worked extremely hard to stay connected to their members and in turn the members supported the game in a way we would never have expected," AFL general manager of commercial Kylie Rogers said.
"On behalf of the AFL and all the clubs, thank you."
