Sky Sports has revealed that viewing figures for the English Premier League were up 21 per cent year on year in 2019.
3.36 million subscribers tuned in to watch Liverpool’s 3-1 win over Manchester City in November making it the third-highest viewing figure since Sky began broadcasting the top flight League in 1992.
In other figures revealed as part of a snapshot annual review, there were 33 million unique visitors each month to the channel’s website and apps, and a total of 2.5 billion social video views across Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
The most popular content on the YouTube sight was a live stream of the boxing match between YouTubers KSI and Logan Paul which drew 28 million views and led to just under 100,000 new subscriptions for the channel.
Sky Sports is into the second iteration of its partnership with the GAA though overall figures for the audience it attracts were not part of the wider release of information.
It became a broadcast partner alongside RTÉ for the first time in 2014 and has two years left to run on its current deal through to the end of the 2021 season.
Its relationship extends towards community projects including the Super Games Centres and support of this weekend’s Annual Coaching Conference at Croke Park.
