More than five times more than in France. The final of the Women’s Euro won by England against Germany (2-1, ap) gathered 17.4 million viewers on BBC One. It is the most watched women’s football game on British television. The highest TV audience before this in the UK was 11.7 million for England’s World Cup semi-final loss to the United States in 2019.
” It was the most-watched women’s football match on British TV of all time and the most-watched program of 2022 so far – and rightly so. Everyone at the BBC is delighted with the victory and to be able to share it with the public “said Tim Davie, the chain’s general manager.
This peak in viewership was accompanied by an additional 5.9 million people on the BBC app and a record audience of 87,192 spectators at Wembley Stadium.
