NRL Magic Round

NRL Magic Round 2024 has recorded the highest audience ever for a regular season round across the Foxtel Group.

An average audience of 545,000 watched all the magic from Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium, which hosted every NRL game of the round, across Foxtel, Kayo Sports, Foxtel Now and Foxtel Go.

The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs vs Canberra Raiders game at 6pm on Friday, the Cronulla Sharks vs Sydney Roosters game at 5.30pm on Saturday and the Melbourne Storm v Parramatta Eels at 4pm on Sunday also recorded their highest audiences ever across the Foxtel Group for their respective timeslots.

The 2024 NRL Premiership season is on track to be the biggest ever across the Foxtel Group.

Fox Sports Managing Director, Steve Crawley, said: “Congratulations to the NRL and all the clubs on an amazing result. Fox Sports and Kayo broke four individual records with viewership numbers over the weekend, beginning with the first match 6.00pm Friday, Raiders v Bulldogs with an average audience of 592,000. This was backed-up by Saturday’s 5.30pm game, Sharks v Roosters, which achieved a spectacular average audience figure of 664,000, and then again on Sunday afternoon where the Storm v Eels game recorded a huge 589,000.”
