The Sherpa.ai Aizkolari Txapelketa Nagusia Championship has broken all records in terms of reach and reach. An unprecedented level of diffusion in aizkolaritza has been achieved. Thanks to the outreach efforts and the agreement reached by the organization for the broadcast of events by GOL at the state level and LaLiga at the international level, on Sunday the final can also be enjoyed on the other side of the screen on channels of more than 15 countries. It was the first rural sporting event (herri kirolak) to be broadcast nationally in Spanish and internationally in England and Asia in English, as well as in Basque, which is the main language of the event.
“This is a total audience success. The broadcast exceeded one hundred thousand viewers and had almost a 2% share, the most-watched show on Sunday on the channel”, said Francesc Carbonell, CEO of GOL. The data obtained are very satisfactory and evidence of interest that the final has risen outside the Basque Autonomous Community. Thus, the broadcast managed to reach the highest share of the day on GOAL: 1.8% in the men’s final and 1.7% in the women’s final. The audience is 115,000 viewers and in the Basque Autonomous Community it reaches 7.8% share. With broadcast moments that even reached 220,000 viewers. This means multiplying by more than the previous ten viewers.
“The truth is that we didn’t expect so much success with the audience and the public. When we decided to start this process together with Aizkolaris, it was a sport on the decline, but we were confident that it could be relaunched and internationalized. Today we have shown that this sport and rural sports in general has a future if we adapt it to the new times and formats”, explains Xabi Uribe-Etxebarria, founder and CEO of Sherpa.ai and championship promoter.
