The ratings for the women’s volleyball World Championship gold medal match in Italy were akin to those for World Cup matches earlier this year.
1.7 million Italians tuned-in on Sunday evening for the Italy-Japan opener of the 2018 FIVB Men’s Volleyball World Championships.

Just like the men’s NCAA championship ratings on Saturday, the women’s NCAA beach volleyball championships dropped in 2017 as compared to 2016.
The drama of a championship recap wasn’t enough to boost television audiences for the 2017 Men’s Volleyball Championship.
