Nearly 70 Percent Of Planet Earth Watches English Premier League???? Empty Nearly 70 Percent Of Planet Earth Watches English Premier League????

Post by Raptorgunner Fri Oct 14, 2011 3:06 am

The Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers are nice, but they can't hold the soccer cleats of Manchester United or Chelsea.

The United Kingdom's English Premier League is the people of Earth's choice for sporting entertainment. An incredible 4.7 billion people, close to 70 percent of the planet's population of 6,775,235,700 , watch the soccer league on television, according to a new study by Sport+Markt consulting firm.

Premier League, founded in 1992, was seen in 643 million homes around the globe, MirrorFootball.co.uk reports. China has the most soccer devotees with more than 300 million. India is second with 147 million.

Overall, Africa has 290 million minions of EPL action.

In addition to the huge overall viewership numbers, a third of all Premier League fans are ladies. Women represent close to 25 percent of fans who actually attend matches.

To put all these wild numbers in perspective, the Packers-Steelers Super Bowl XLV matchup drew a U.S.-record 111 million average viewers to FOX, making it the most watched program ever.

I have to agree. I don't think enough people have cable to make this possible. Would love to see how they came to this number though. American Football is only ONE country's top sport. Of course EPL would be rated higher around the world as football (soccer) is the worlds most popular sport, it's kind of common sense.

This is the most ridiculous statistic I've ever seen. I seriously doubt that more than 1 billion people watch the PL.

Before the game, a Premier League spokesman was quoted as saying: "It is no exaggeration to say it could be watched by one billion people." But, as a League spokesman clarified yesterday, the emphasis should have been on "could be".

The game was screened in 203 territories, and potentially in 611m homes. The reality is that only a tiny fraction of those who could watch, did watch. Official figures from Broadcasters' Audience Research Board (Barb) show the live audience was 1.477m people on Sky Sports in the UK. This was the single largest market. The rest of Europe, combined, added a few million more. North America and South America together added fewer than a million. The balance was in Asia.

this was in 2007.

The Premier League’s status as the world’s No.1 league was confirmed last night with new figures showing an annual TV audience of 4.7 billion.

Games are viewed in 643 million homes around the planet, with 185,000 hours of Premier League action broadcast last year.

The stats from the SPORT+MARKT consultancy revealed China has the most Premier League followers of any country at more than 300m.

India was second on 147m, with around 28m of these supporting a Premier League club, while the audience across Africa was 290m.

The survey put the global number of Premier League club supporters at more than 1.4bn, equal to 70 per cent of the planet’s fans.

How can they even track this. I guarantee 50% of all games are watched over an illegal streaming over the INTERNET. Maybe 10 people watching the same tv. It's obvious football is the most popular sport in the world by a huge margin. But 4.7 billion is insane. the other 30% are either american or still young children.

Like 2 billion people watch the world cup final I believe, maybe more.
But that is the World Cup! That is when the whole "OMG! ISNT THE ITALIAN TEAM HOT!" viewership comes in.

ITS THE MOST POPULAR LEAGUE IN THE WORLDS MOST POPULAR SPORT, IS THIS ANY SURPRISE? sorry for the caps lock lol..

there was a study last year which averaged out the world viewing figures of an average epl game involving utd..v spurs or something.
1 game so it viewers didnt overlap involving the official figures from each sports channel and it ended up being 3.4 billion viewers or something ridiculous
this is like asking how many rap fans have a tupac album, or how many movie buffs own the godfather trilogy
it sounds more impressive than it isbecause the figures are ridiculous

The report is simply inaccurate.

Even they mention only 300 mil in China and 147 mil in watch EPl.That leaves nearly 2billion people in these 2 countries itself who dont watch PL.That in itself is nearly 30% of world population(The 2 billion who dont watch in India and China).

So how on earth 4.7 billion or 70% world over can watch football.

This is just completely false and ridiculous.
The most viewed sport event every year is the Champions League final with around 300 milion people. Any given premier league game doesn't even come close.

Especially as there are countries with a rather huge football fanbase where people prefer watching their own leagues and not EPL, too. I bet in Italy, Germany and Spain the percentage of people watching the domestic leagues is quite a bit higher than the people watching EPL.
