beIN MEDIA GROUP’s flagship sports channel beIN SPORTS saw viewership numbers soar last month during the eventful UEFA Champions League final match in Paris’ Stade de France – drawing approximately 88 million viewers for the stand-alone finale according to IPSOS figures.
With the help of a close-range goal from Brazilian winger Vinícius Júnior in the 59th minute, Real Madrid was crowned the European football champions once again, taking home the coveted trophy after beating Liverpool 1-0 in a record-extending 14th win for the Spanish giants.
The match was aired live and exclusively on beIN SPORTS - in three languages with dedicated Arabic and English studios - across all 24 countries in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) on Saturday, 28 May.
As the 2021/22 European football season comes to a nail-biting conclusion, the broadcaster also witnessed high viewership for two other football favourites in May, with both the Manchester City vs. Aston Villa English Premier League and A.S. Roma vs. Feyenoord Rotterdam UEFA Europa Conference League finals garnering mammoth viewership figures of 20+ million each.
