RTVE bets on football to try to improve its audience data. After buying the broadcasting rights for the Qatar 2022 World Cup that will start in just two weeks and those for the Copa del Rey, today we learned that he has also kept the rights for the next two Champions League finals.
The Corporation has reported today that it will be the channel that will broadcast the Champions League finals for the years 2023 and 2024 openly. Its objective is to repeat the audience success achieved in May of this year 2022, when Real Madrid beat Liverpool before a 52.8% audience share.
In total, an average of 7,716,000 spectators that, in the event that a Spanish team reaches the final again, could be repeated. RTVE will not only keep the broadcast of the finals but will also prepare a special program that will encompass the entire week prior to the final.
After the great audience success on May 28, the public channel decided to once again bet on the Champions League finals, although this year there is only one team left in the running: Real Madrid. Be that as it may, the Whites' fans are already dreaming of winning their 15th European trophy.
This is not the only football vein of RTVE, which in addition to the World Cup in Qatar, has also acquired the rights to the Copa del Rey until 2025. 15 games per season can be seen open, including two from each round, the four semi-finals and the final. Of course, these rights are shared with Movistar, which will also broadcast the semifinals and the final, in addition to other games of the season.
