League Express journalist Gareth Walker has reported big viewing figures for Toronto’s match against York, broadcast by Sky Sports.
The round one fixture clashed with Premier League football and Six Nations rugby union, but a peak of 86,000 tuned in.
A deal to broadcast all of Toronto’s fixtures in 2019 was announced last month.
Toronto say their opening game at York on Sky was watched by a peak 86,000, at a time when both Manchester United and City were playing. Wolfpack encouraged by those figures
