Cricket No. 1, Rugby League No. 2. ... AFL baah who cares



Cricket remains Australia's favourite sport, according to a new report, but rugby league has enjoyed a rebound in popularity.

About a third of Australia's 13 million sports fans are estimated to follow cricket, with tennis close behind (29 per cent).

Rugby league sits equal second as most popular - up two spots from last year.

The study, by digital media company Perform, ranked AFL the fourth most followed sport (28 per cent), ahead of soccer (23 per cent) and swimming (18 per cent).

Meanwhile, the number of Australians using smartphones and tablets to watch sport has jumped in the past year.

And so, too, has the amount of people following their favoured sports on Twitter and Facebook.

Australian sport fans watch an average of 8.5 hours each week, with TV, newspapers/magazines and websites the most used methods of consumption.
The report's findings are based on interviews with more than 1000 Australian adults.
