The 0-0 draw between France and the Netherlands at the 2024 European Championships national team soccer tournament on Friday brought in a French TV audience of 10.2 million.

The game was shown live in France (one of the tournament favorites) free-to-air (FTA) by the M6 network.

The 10 million-plus audience figure equated to a market share of 47.4%.

While significant, the viewership number is lower than for Les Blues' opening Euro 2024 game against Austria, when their 1-0 win was watched live by 11.25 million on the TF1 FTA commercial network.

Euro 2024 fixtures in France are being shown live by both M6 and TF1, as well as by BeIN Sports, the international pay-TV broadcaster.

BeIN snapped up partial rights through a last-minute deal earlier this month.

The Euros are taking place in Germany between June 14 and July 14, and France’s last group stage game takes place on June 25 (tomorrow) as they take on Poland in Dortmund. A draw will confirm qualification to the round of 16.

Elsewhere, the UK’s BBC public-service broadcaster brought in a peak audience of 10 million to watch Scotland lose 1-0 to Hungary – a result that knocks them out of the Euros.

The average audience for the group-stage game last night came to 8.4 million, while across the BBC’s various digital platforms (including its iPlayer service and the BBC Sport website) the game was streamed 3.4 million times.

The average viewing figure equated to a market share of 52.1%.

The BBC and commercial FTA broadcaster ITV are sharing live Euro 2024 rights in the UK.
