Women’s Cricket World Cup 2017 draws record audiences
The 2017 edition of the Women’s Cricket World Cup, held in England, marked a significant breakthrough for women’s cricket and for women’s sports. The attention and the audience registered reached almost unprecedented levels, making the victory of the home team an even greater celebration.
A crowd of more than 26,000 people watched the final of the tournament, which saw England beat India, and more than 50 million people worldwide followed the tournament. The crowd at the final is the second largest ever registered at the Women’s Cricket World Cup.
The audiences throughout the tournament in England marks a great improvement with the last edition held in India, where the women’s teams were largely neglected. In India, women’s teams were evicted last-minute from the Mumbai Stadium to make place for the men’s game, publicity was absent and attendance at the games were low.
