St Kilda Saints play Carlton Blues on Monday night 10 May at Etihad Stadium . The match starts at 7.20 pm and will be televised .
It’s a bold marketing move by the AFL in a bid to attractÂ greater attendance figures and putÂ more bums on seats .
The choice of a game during the week as opposed to weekends , friday night or public holidays is a relatively new initiative .
Both clubs enjoy a large supporter fan base .
Some reports in the media have shown stories of younger fans being unable to attend as it is a school night .
Older fans may be absent due to work commitments.
The AFL , whilst continually developing and looking at new ways to attract supporters will be mindful of this .
Will it be financially rewardingÂ for the two clubs who are hoping to attract high attendance figures and a hefty revenue paymentÂ for the media broadcast?
