The final of Euro 2022 broke TV viewing records on Sunday.

England’s historic win over Germany in the Women’s Euro 2022 final at a sold-out Wembley Stadium pulled in a peak TV audience of 17.4 million on BBC One – making it the most-watched women’s football game on UK television of all-time.

Across BBC iPlayer and BBC Sport website and app there were 5.9 million streams as audiences witnessed goals from Ella Toone and an extra-time winner from Chloe Kelly, as the Lionesses claimed victory in a major international tournament for England for the first time since 1966.

“We are incredibly proud to have championed women’s football and are thrilled we were able to bring such a special sporting moment to the public,” said Tim Davie, BBC Director-General.

“This was the most-watched women’s football game on UK television of all-time and the most-watched programme in 2022 so far – and deservedly so.

“Everyone at the BBC is delighted at the win and being able to share that with the public.”
