This is an incredible achievement for ONE Championship, who not only launched less than 10 years ago, but is also growing at the fastest rate of any major global sports property with its digital follower growth across Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube at +113%, 28% higher than the next closest sports property in the Nielsen study.

ONE Championship Ranks Top 10

ONE Championship ranks at #7 overall in total followers across these platforms, per Nielsen.

In the cumulative reach, ONE Championship ranks #3 behind the English Premier League (#1) and UEFA Champions League (#2), and ahead of the UFC (#6), according to Nielsen. Cumulative reach measures the number of unique viewers who tune in to watch at least one minute of a TV broadcast.

ONE Championship ranks #4 overall in total video views, with more than 6.1 billion across Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube, just behind the UFC (#3) and NFL (#2).

In terms of engagement on Facebook, ONE Championship ranks #5, just behind the NBA (#4) and ahead of the UFC (#6). Football properties EPL, UEFA, and LaLiga round out the top three, per Nielsen.

The report provided by Nielsen also states that ONE Championship also ranked #10 in 2020 broadcast hours despite the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, which included a span of nearly three months without live global events.
