That's 30% more viewers than the record set in 2019 when the United States defeated England in the Women's World Cup semifinals.
Yesterday's 2-1 England victory also became the most watched television program in the UK this year and the most-viewed women's soccer game in the UK.
Germany's viewership figures also broke records, with public broadcast station ARD reporting a peak of 17.9 million fans tuning in. That number eclipses the 16.95 million who previously watched the German women's defeat to Japan in the 2011 Women's World Cup quarterfinal.
A record-breaking year in Women's football
The Women's Euro final also set the record for the third highest attended matches in European football this year with 87,192 in attendance.
The three highest attended matches in European football this season have all been women's games.
From Alessia Russo's miracle finish to England bringing it home its first trophy since 1966, Euro 2022 is yet another milestone in what's been a record-setting year for women's football.
