Psg Bayern: Record Audience Of 11.4 Million Viewers On Tf1

The front page even reached a peak audience of 13.5 million viewers at the end of the meeting.

The Champions League final between PSG and Bayern Munich played Sunday evening in Lisbon made at least one happy in France: TF1. While, the channel which broadcast the final unencrypted achieved one of its three best audiences of the year with 11.4 million viewers on average, or 46% of audience share over 4 years and over. Proof that all French people wanted to believe it until the final whistle, the front page reached a peak audience of 13.5 million viewers at the end of the meeting.

While the French had been frustrated with sport on TV since March 2020 and the postponement of the Euro, the Olympics and the Tour de France, this event match was full. He achieved a better audience than in 2004, when Monaco climbed to the final against FC Porto. At the time, TF1 had gathered 11 million viewers. However, the Marseillais are once again the first, both in terms of winners and in terms of audience. Olympique de Marseille have participated twice in a Champions League final. The first time, in 1991, the loss to Red Star Belgrade drew 17.5 million viewers. And in 1993, for OM’s victory against AC Milan, the audience totaled 16.6 million viewers.

If the French support their clubs, they are even more fond of their national team. The France team’s victory in the 2018 World Cup final reached a record 19.3 million viewers still on TF1 and one million on the beIN Sports channel.

Great blow for RMC Sport

On RMC Sport, the pay channel which has held the Champions League broadcasting rights for two seasons, this final drew 922,000 viewers on the evening. The subsidiary of the Altice group, which still owns the rights for the next Champions League campaign (2020-2021), has decided to co-broadcast the competition with the new pay channel Téléfoot. After that, it was Canal + which took over the queen competition in Europe for three seasons.

, could soon be the delight of one of these two pay channels. And if it arrives in the final, it is a free channel, TF1, M6 or even those of France Télévisions, which will broadcast the meeting.
