The European Handball Federation (EHF) and its media and marketing partner Infront Sports & Media have achieved a cumulative audience of 723 million for the Women’s EHF EURO 2014, which is the highest ever result for the championship. The result marks not only a 90 per cent increase on the 2012 edition (380 million), but also significantly tops the previous record set in 2006 (461 million).
In terms of broadcast hours, the results are equally remarkable.
