The United States women’s national team brought in record-breaking numbers for some broadcasts during its 2019 World Cup victory Sunday.
The final match, which ended with a 2-0 victory over the Netherlands, aired at 11 a.m. ET on Fox and posted a 10.0 (out of 27) overnight metered-market result. The viewership beat last year’s men’s World Cup final by over 20% but still fell behind the record-breaking 2015 women’s final between the USWNT and Japan, which aired in primetime.
However, one network did reach record-breaking figures as the national team earned its fourth cup title.
Telemundo Deportes reached historic numbers after 1.6 million viewers tuned into the broadcast on the Spanish-speaking station. It made for the most watched Women’s World Cup match ever on Spanish-language television. This game did pass the 2015 final, which had 1.27 million viewers, by 22%.
