>The Big Bash League has burst into the top 10 most attended sports leagues in the world.
>The late-season average of 28,279 before Sunday's two games has propelled the BBL to ninth position on the list of the world's most attended sports leagues, nudging ahead of Japan's professional baseball league (28,248) and Indian Super League football (26,376) and ensuring the Canadian Football League (24,737) and Italy's Serie A (23,001) are absent from the top 10.
>Even so, a rise of nearly 5000 spectators per game and the place in the global top 10 to date this season is another representation of the fast emerging success of the BBL.
>Top 10 most watched sports leagues (average crowds, 2015/16)
>1. NFL 68,278
>2. German Bundesliga 43,331
>3. US College Football Division I FBL 43,288

>you now remember that rugby league is a "sport"
They literally are getting cucked by a meme cricket league lol.
AFL confirmed patrician choice in Australian sports, nrlel is for lebo poofters and old people
Ive posted this before - the big bash is a joke. It goes for 6 weeks and the players dont care whether they win or lose as long as they take home a paycheck. Its more of a circus than a sport
IT'S NOT FAIR!!!
WE WERE SUPPOSED TO BE POPULAR IN AUSTRALIA!!!
>that massive gap from NFL to Bundesliga
>2 of top 3 are gridiron football

>Channel 9 trying to cash in on the BBL by having KP on commentary tomorrow
kek, the other stations are on suicide watch, especially 9 I rekon who will be literally fuming that their "Summer of Cricket" was complete dogshit aside from 3 days against NZ.
Channel 10 pay like 5% of the amount for the BBL that 9 do for international cricket but the BBL will be making Channel 10 far more money than "international" ""cricket"" is atm
I love to go see some great T20 at the Gabba. The Brisbane Heat are really my favorite team. Of course I am not very happy with our current ladder position. As a Big Strong American, T20 cricket really is more attractive to my sensibilities because I am so used to short, limited games like in baseball. Please watch our sport, Big Strong American.
I wasn't commenting on the quality, just stating the fact that the ABL is technically a professional baseball league.
The USA also has professional leagues for sports that are not popular there.
