aFX CASE STUDY.
AUSTRALIA'S NATIONAL RUGBY LEAGUE
Australia’s National Rugby League (NRL) played one round pre-suspension in empty venues. Fans, social media, the NRL and broadcasters all lamented the lack of crowd atmosphere.
TV ratings declined, a huge issue for the NRL with broadcasters demanding large reductions in their 2020 rights fees.
The NRL recommenced on May 28 with empty venues. To address the perceived poor TV experience, aFX was implemented on the national NRL broadcaster, Wide World of Sports, the Nine Network.
