UK witnesses unprecedented surge in TV viewership for women’s sports
Women’s Sport Trust, referring to data from Futures Sport & Entertainment, revealed that 20.6 million individuals watched three minutes or more of women’s sports coverage between January 1 and April 30, compared to 18.9 million during the same period in 2022.
Notably, this surge includes a remarkable 34% of individuals who had not previously watched any women’s sport in 2022. The surge in viewership can be attributed to the exceptional performance of various premium women’s sports events in the UK, such as the Barclays Women’s Super League, the TikTok Women’s Six Nations, and the ICC T20 World Cup.
