Women’s esports are growing daily and capturing many more people’s interest. This fact was demonstrated at the SEA Games when one of the women’s competitions broke the audience record.
We are talking about the MLBB women’s competition at the SEA Games being history’s most-watched women’s esports competition. The grand final, where the Indonesian girls were crowned champions, was the most watched competition in esports; its highest peak viewership was 1.3 million. With this significant number of viewers, the latest MLBB tournament far surpasses any women’s competition in the past.
What are the most watched women’s competitions?
The women’s SEA Games are here to stay as the most watched competition. Remember that esports is included in the SEA games for the third time in a row. However, women’s esports competitions are the first time they have added.
The MLBB women’s league has become one of the most watched leagues in esports, so the new inclusion seems perfect. Six women’s teams fought for the gold medal in this important competition.
The countries in the SEA Games are Cambodia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Philippines, Indonesia, and Laos. However, the countries that proved to be the strongest were the Philippines, represented by Omega Empress, and Indonesia, represented by Bigetron Era, who made it to the grand final.
According to data published by Esports Charts, the grand final captured the attention of 1.3 million people who saw the Indonesian girls crowned as the champions.
This was followed by MWI 2022, which reached a peak of 392,000 viewers, according to Esports Charts data. However, this competition is nowhere near the record that has just been broken.
