France-Austria Draws Solid Audience For Fox; European Championship Viewership Average Up 35% So Far

While the U.S. audience for the European Championship had dipped since the weekend, Fox is still holding onto some solid viewership as the Group Stage continues.

The network saw 1.2M viewers tune in to see France defeat Austria in Monday afternoon’s UEF A European Championship Group Stage match, according to Fox. That’s up 24% versus the comparable Monday group stage match in 2021, which was a Spain vs. Sweden matchup that netted about 953,000 viewers.
