Most popular Twitch streamers in the Netherlands 2019

In November 2019, YaraskyGaming was the most-followed Twitch streamer in the Netherlands. All entries in this ranking are Dutch game streamers with no mention of how many people from the Netherlands follow foreign streamers, such as former Counter-Strike professional Ninja who is currently the world’s most popular Twitch streamer due to his sessions of Fortnite with celebrities such as hip hop artist Drake. Numbers on subscribers, instead of followers, for Twitch are not publicly available.

YouTube is more popular than Twitch in the Netherlands

YaraskyGaming (otherwise known as Yarasky) and GameMeneer already had many subscribers on YouTube before they started to stream on Twitch. According to a survey in 2017, ten percent of Dutch respondents used a game streaming service. Of this ten percent, 91 percent indicated they used YouTube for this. The penetration rate of Twitch among game stream watchers in the Netherlands was 36 percent in 2017. KingKongor, the second entry in the ranking, had more followers on Twitch than subscribers on YouTube.

Dutch teenagers and Millennials are particularly interested in (professional) gaming

There are not many figures which show how many people follow game streams or eSports in the Netherlands. This is probably due to the country’s relatively small size compared to, for example, the United States or Asia, which have a rich history in eSports. There is interest, though. When looking at the average age of eSports viewers in the Netherlands, 71 percent were aged between 18 and 34 years.
