I am in Year 12 and recently did a business studies assignment were I needed to research a businesses annual Finacial Reports. The teacher said to do a business that I was interested in, so I did the NRL. After two weeks of researching the NRLs 2014 and 2015 financial reports, I finally realised why the FOX Sports deal was made and why NINE created the "NRL Rookie" show. Basically, The NRL has gone into deficit. They are spending way more money than they are earning. From 2013-2015, the NRL lost over 73 million dollars. Amount of money at the beginning of period (1 November): 2013: $117M 2014: $66M 2015: $44M If the NRL don't get out of this decline, there will be no footy in 2 years time. https://www.nrl.com/portals/nrl/radeditor/documents/nrl_annual_report_2014b.pdf https://www.nrl.com/portals/nrl/RadEditor/Documents/2016/NRL Annual Report_2015.pdf Todd Greenburg is trying everything he can to save Rugby League. Help him by going to as many games as possible!
