The Under-21 National Team's tournament opener against Spain received 5.6 million viewers on RAI 1, taking a net share of 29,40% of the television audience which was more than the senior side’s match away to Greece. In the second half, the share rose to 30,75% with almost 6 million viewers (5,937,000). The pre-match ceremony with the rapper Rocco Hunt who performs the official UEFA EURO U-21 song was watched by 3,817,000 people, an audience share of 21.60%
The figures show the extraordinary enduring popularity of the men’s and women’s teams in all competitions as viewers continue to identify with the Azzurri.
RAI’s commitment to providing extended coverage of a high standard in its role as the host broadcaster for EURO U-21 forms a key part of the communications strategy with regard to fans and FIGC stakeholders. Another successful production was the documentary ‘Ragazze mondiali’ from RAI that was shown on RAI 1 following the live broadcast from Bologna that was watched by 1,500,000 million people for an audience share of 10%.
