There is one more reason to keep a close eye on the future of the Australian Rules Football Grand Final.
The NRL is looking at the possibility of making it a double-header on the same day, in the hopes of increasing the interest.
That could see the game played in Canberra on Sunday, while on Thursday night it would be played at Suncorp Stadium in Perth.
That would add to the number of events on the calendar and would provide more entertainment for the thousands of people who will be attending.
The AFL and NRL have already said they are interested in hosting a doubleheader in 2018.
It is unclear if the AFL or NRL have been approached about doing that.
But a double header could boost attendance to double figures.
The 2017 AFL premiership was played in Melbourne, and the 2017 NRL grand finals were played in Perth, but it is not yet known whether the AFL and the NRL are interested.
The grand final was a huge success, with more than 11,000 fans in attendance.
That is an average of about 9,000 people attending each game, and it was the highest average attendance in a AFL or National Rugby League grand final.
A doubleheader would likely add an extra level of excitement to the game, even if it is played in the same city.
The Grand Final is always a sell-out, with most games taking place in the first half hour, as it has been in recent years.
But if it happens in 2019, the crowds could be boosted further.
If there are enough people to attend, that could be a big boost for the competition.
There are other potential events that could draw fans in to the city.
There is the NRL Grand Final on Saturday night, which could bring in a crowd of up to 17,000.
A triple-header would bring in 20,000 spectators.
The game is also set to be broadcast live on ABC TV.
The Adelaide Crows have a double kick off, as well as a three-point conversion and kick-off from their training ground.
There will also be an NRL match on Sunday afternoon, which would draw an average attendance of more than 30,000, according to the league.
That will bring an average crowd of more or less 16,000 per match.
But the league is not expecting the crowd to be that big, and a triple-kick-off and triple-point Conversion will not boost the crowd.
The first game of the AFL Grand Final will be played on Saturday, December 6, 2019.
The last NRL Grand final will be held in the Sydney CBD on Sunday.
There would also be a double game between the two clubs at Suntec Stadium on December 14, 2020, in Melbourne.
It would be the second time the NRL has played in Sydney.
The Cowboys have played in Australia’s capital city in two other matches: a win on the opening weekend of the 2017 AFL season and a loss in Round 19, 2018.
Both games drew a crowd over 20,0000.
That has been the average attendance for both games in Sydney, and that number has risen to over 23,000 for the Cowboys in 2020.
The only other double-game match in Sydney is the finals rematch between the Cowboys and the Storm.
It will be a return game for both teams in 2019.
It was a match played in both Canberra and Geelong, but the crowd numbers have not been as high in Canberra.
But there would be more people in the CBD on the second night of the finals, which will be on the Sunday.
