Sky’s Cricket World Cup final audience peaks at 3.5m



Commenting on England’s victory in the 2019 Cricket World Cup final, Sky’s Chief Executive UK and Ireland Stephen van Rooyen said:

“Congratulations to England and everyone who has been part of the journey at the ECB. The ICC put on a terrific tournament. We’ve been proud host broadcasters of a home cricket World Cup, dedicating a channel and showing every single minute, which has been absorbing from the first ball to the unforgettable final delivery.

“Sunday saw a peak across Sky and Channel 4 of 8.3 million – a huge audience for a huge moment for British sport. On Sky’s channels our peak was 3.5m alone, a fitting way to cap a terrific tournament.

“We are proud of our long term cricket partnership, which has grown over three decades, delivering record investment into the sport. This partnership will continue with our coverage of the Men’s and Women’s Ashes this Summer, and by working with the ECB to deliver a new grassroots cricket participation campaign.”
