    Six Nations highest attended global sports event

    The Six Nations is on average attended by more people than any other sport in the world, according to a new UEFA report.

    It is one of rugby's flagship events each year and attracts an average supporter base of 72,000.

    In 2015, the tournament, which brings together England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, France and Italy over 15 games, saw just over one million fans attend stadia such as Twickenham, the Millennium Stadium and Murrayfield.

    The competition saw England and Ireland scrap it out for the title, with Ireland emerging victorious to claim their 13th trophy win.

    The fact that it remained so tight until the last fixtures meant numbers were boosted.

    NFL - which is now viewed more than ever before in Britain, given its introduction to Wembley - ranks second.

    Nearly 18 million fans turned in total turned out for the 2015 season, which spanned across 256 games.

    Sixty-four thousand on average turned up throughout the campaign, which included a Super Bowl victory for the Denver Broncos at the Levi's Stadium. In total 71,088 packed into the Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
