Record viewing figures for Women’s World Cup England v Scotland clash

England’s win over Scotland in the Women’s World Cup on Sunday was the UK’s most watched women’s football match of all time, drawing a peak of 6.1m viewers on BBC television.

The figure – 37.8% of the available audience – breaks the previous record of 4m viewers for England’s Euro 2017 semi-final against the Netherlands.

Just before the women kicked off in Nice, England men were playing Switzerland in the Nations League third place play-off. That was shown on Sky Sports and had a peak audience of 1.236m (15% share) as England won on penalties.
