802085245_1715345652_0_Betway.png

The Betway SA20 roared back for its second season, leaving cricket fans breathless and hungry for more! Not only did Sunrisers Eastern Cape snatch the title in a sold-out Newlands final, but the entire season was a record-breaking extravaganza.

Lights, Camera, Action!

Viewership went ballistic! Global audiences surged by 21%, with broadcasters in India, UK, US, and Australia tuning in for the electrifying action. Locally, SuperSport witnessed a 24% viewership jump, with a surprising (and awesome!) 46% being female viewers.

Social Media Frenzy

The love for Betway SA20 exploded online! The league's social media following doubled, while video views, website visits, and fan interactions rocketed by over 100%. The final match itself saw a mind-blowing 882% increase in social media buzz compared to Season 1.

Cricket Like You've Never Seen Before!

From Will Jacks' jaw-dropping 41-ball century to Heinrich Klaasen's explosive batting that earned him Player of the Season honors, the cricket was pure fire. Fans witnessed 4 centuries, 49 half-centuries, and a whopping 454 sixes launched into the stands! Bowlers weren't to be outdone either, with 3 stunning 5-wicket hauls.

The Stands Were Roaring!

The electric atmosphere at the stadiums mirrored the action on the field. Ten matches were completely sold out, and a whopping 70% of all tickets were snapped up throughout the season. A fan survey revealed that 96% found the stadium experience "very enjoyable," proving Betway SA20 is a must-see event.

Global Recognition

The league's success went beyond borders. Media coverage generated a PR value of a staggering R4 billion, reaching a mind-boggling 75.5 billion people worldwide. Even in South Africa, non-traditional news outlets jumped on the bandwagon, further amplifying the league's reach.

More Than Just Cricket

Betway SA20 wasn't just about sixes and wickets. The tournament remained committed to social good, raising R900,000 for the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation South Africa.

A Season to Remember

League Commissioner Graeme Smith summed it up perfectly: "We are incredibly proud of Season 2. The growth in viewership, following, engagement, and attendance showcases the immense interest in Betway SA20. We can't wait to do it all again next year – bigger and better!"

Mark your calendars, cricket fans! Betway SA20 is here to stay, promising another season of record-breaking cricket, electrifying crowds, and unforgettable moments.
