ITV The Home For Big Live Football
The top 15 football related programmes (all live games) are broadcast on ITV. In fact the broadcaster dominates the top 20 with 17 of the top football related programmes (the other 3 being Match of The Day on BBC1).
The top 10 listed below are based on average 000's for individuals:
Champions League - Man Utd v Real Madrid - 9,387
England Friendlies - England v Brazil – 6,852
England International - Montenegro v England – 6,818
England International - England v Ukraine - 5,746
England International - England v San Marino - 5,571
FA CUP - Man Utd v Chelsea - 5,357
Champions League - Arsenal v Bayern Munich - 5,207
England International - San Marino v England – 5,183
England Friendlies - Sweden v England - 5,122
FA CUP Replay - Man Utd v West Ham - 5,107
To add some further context to the above the biggest Premier league game of the season (arguably Man Utd v Liverpool) received an average individual 000's of 2,615 and is the 68th (69th with Montenegro) biggest football related programme of the season so far.
All of the above shows that for BIG football audiences ITV truly is the home of live football.
