4.5 Million spectators tuned into France’s qualification against Belgium

According to L’Équipe  4.5 million people tuned into France’s Bastille day victory against Belgium last night – as Les Bleues qualified for the quarter-finals of Euro 2022. It was shown live on both French channels TF1 and Canal+ last night, and comes in just below the 4.95 million spectators that saw France’s opening game against Italy. 

Corrine Diacre’s side qualified for the quarter finals of Euro 2022 after a hard-fought 2-1 win against Belgium – which sees them top Group D before playing Iceland on Monday. 

According to TF1, the match recorded a peak viewership at 4.7m spectators, with Canal+ (the paid co-broadcaster of the competition) drew 498,000 viewers, with a peak of more than 600,000 according to the channel’s figures. 

The highest amount of spectators that watched a French women’s national team game was in June 2019, where around 12 million people tuned into both RMC and Canal+ to see France’s knock-out victory against Brazil on home territory.
