Women’s World Cup : This is the MIES (Swiss) The FIBA Women’s Basketball Globe Cup 2022 in Sydney, Australia, had unprecedented broadcast, attendance, internet, and social media figures, proving the sport’s continuous development and appeal throughout the world.
Five times as many people engaged with content about the World Cup on social media as in 2018, with 1.1 billion impressions, and half a billion video views, which is an increase of seven times from the last World Cup on social media.
The @FIBAWWC social media accounts had a fourfold rise in engagement during 2022, while the official FIBA Women’s Basketball 2022 World Cup website saw 1.5 million fans log on, up over 100 percent from the 2018 tournament in Tenerife’s peak.
In terms of television viewers, women’s basketball set new standards as its popularity soared in important areas. ESPN was the broadcast partner in both nations, therefore the event was seen by half a million people in the host country and by three times as many people in the United States despite the time zone difference. Meanwhile, more than 750 million people worldwide were able to watch the competition thanks to TV broadcasts from China (CCTV-5 and Tencent).
Over 18 million Chinese watched the final on CCTV-5, while another 23 million watched it online through Tencent.
With almost 145,000 fans in attendance, the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup 2022 broke all previous records for crowd size.
FIBA Secretary General Andreas Zagklis exclaimed, “We are really thrilled with the remarkable performance of the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup 2022.”
The women’s game continues to grow popularity throughout the world, as seen by the record turnout and the unparalleled numbers across broadcast, digital, and social media. The continuing investment by FIBA will guarantee its commitment to elevating the world game’s premier event, which is a strategic objective for the organization.
I’d want to congratulate the whole Sydney Local Organizing Committee and the FIBA staff for their hard work in putting on such a high-quality tournament.
For the fourth time in a row, the United States of America has triumphed in the FIBA Women’s World Cup (22 September – 1 October 2022). China finished in second place, earning their first World Cup medal since 1994.
