First Full Frame - Used A9II or A7IV

Hi - I was hoping I could get some thoughts on these two cameras, as I am thinking about upgrading to, or adding in a full frame to my current setup.

I like shooting wildlife (Not BIF) and my kid's/nieces'/nephews' sporting events, all of which tend to take place in subpar lighting conditions. I currently use an A6400 and have invested in good lenses, but I find that I am still not always getting the results I want. I imagine it is either my novice status, my gear/shooting conditions, or a mixture of both. Or, maybe my expectations are just too high.

I was considering an A7iv or a used A9II ($3200) as an upgrade. I have not, and do not foresee myself shooting any video, so those capabilities are of little concern. Any input would be great! Thanks in advance - JS

Edit - one more thought... do I try one more lens on the apse (tamron 150-500 to replace the 70-350) and see if that gives me better results for football, softball, etc.  Guess that couldn't hurt, as it could be used on either body.
