Renaissance In Croatian Domestic Football – TV Viewers Up 67%

If the first two rounds of the new Croatian football league are anything to go by then there seems to be a renaissance happening with domestic football in Croatia.

Over the past few years interest from the public in Croatia in the Croatian football league had significantly waned mainly due to the poor standard of football on the park, and the even poorer perception the public had of the internal politics that ran the game in the country. The 2013/2014 season has started off on somewhat of a better foot with 20,000 fans turning up to watch the Adriatic derby between Hajduk Split and Zadar, and 6,000 fans watching Zadar take on Dinamo Zagreb -120% more fans through the turnstiles from last season’s average.

It is not just at the ground where interest has grown, in the first two rounds there has been a 67% increase of television viewers compared with last seasons average.
