Record-breaking 2022 Women's Euro watched by 365 million globally

Aug 31 (Reuters) - The 2022 Women's European Championship was the most watched edition of the tournament with a projected global cumulative live viewership of 365 million, European soccer's governing body UEFA said on Wednesday.

The viewership for this year's tournament, which was won by hosts England after they defeated Germany in the final, was more than double the number in the 2017 edition (178 million) and 214% higher than in 2013 (116 million).

The final attracted a cumulative live viewership of 50 million worldwide, which was over three times more than the 2017 final.

The viewership figures were counted across television, out-of-home viewing and streaming.
