The broadcaster has confirmed the total audience, across its digital and TV platforms, was 11.3 million viewers, a third higher than the audience for the 2018 final between the Reds and Real Madrid, which was seen by 8.5 million fans.

BT made the decision to broadcaster the final to its TV subscribers as normal, but also made the match available for free via its mobile app, website and YouTube channel, with 6.5 million viewing on television and 4.8 million across the digital platforms.

Thus, BT Sport had more viewers during the game, which kicked off at 8pm, than BBC One and ITV1 combined at the same time.

In a statement, BT marketing director Pete Oliver said: “This season's Champions League and Europa League have been a great success for BT.”
