Sky Germany attracts record audience for Bundesliga restart

first_imgIn addition, 2.45 million viewers watched the ‘Konferenz’ – a simultaneous live broadcast of the five afternoon games, where coverage moved from stadium to stadium.In the day’s main game, Erling Braut Haaland scored the first Bundesliga goal since mid-March to help Borussia Dortmund rout rivals Schalke 4-0 and stay in the title race with Bayern Munich, who play Union Berlin away on Sunday.A spokesman for the German Football League (DFL) told AFP the matches were televised by more than 70 broadcasters worldwide, all on previously-agreed deals.With Bundesliga matches played behind closed doors in near-empty stadiums, Sky Germany broadcast the ‘Konferenz’ on its free-to-view Sports News Channel. The restart of the Bundesliga behind locked doors on Saturday attracted over six million viewers watching in Germany, a new record for broadcasters Sky, according to specialist website DWDL.de. When the German league resumed on Saturday afternoon after a two-month break due to the coronavirus, Sky had 3.68 million viewers watching the matches on its subscription TV channels in Germany.The domestic figure is more than double the usual audience for a typical round of Saturday matches. The idea was to discourage fans in Germany from meeting up to watch matches in places with a Sky subscription.When Saturday afternoon’s games kicked-off, Sky Germany had a market share of 27.4 percent on their pay-to-view channels and 18.2 percent on their free channel.In the target group of 14-49 year olds, the total market share was “over 60 percent”, according to DWDL.de on Sunday, a record for Sky Germany.Having been granted permission to restart after the German government approved the league’s strict hygiene guidelines, the Bundesliga is the first top European league to resume.There are hopes the leagues in Italy, Spain and England can restart next month while the French league season has already been scrapped.center_img Topics :last_img read more

City League Roundup…Play continues as weather conditions improve

first_img“(Unselfish play) is what we’ve been preaching all year,” Peabody coach Tim Broderick said. “If you make the extra pass, you’ll win the game. I tell them all the time to duck their heads and get to the basket and to share the ball.”Both coaches agree that the league has no clear favorite to win it all.“I think any of the top six teams can be a threat to win the title,” said Broderick.  “Each team has its own identity and you have to respect that. They can all hurt you in so many ways.”“This League is totally up for grabs,” said Corona.Marcus Smith led all scorers for Perry with 25 points.
