ESPN’s coverage of the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup final between Spain and Brazil was watched by 1.3 million people in the United States. The TV rating for the final was a 1.2, according to Nielsen Company. Note that the ratings are US household ratings.

While it was less than the viewing figures for the final 2009 Confederations Cup match, where 2.5 million people watched the game on ESPN, that year’s final featured the USA against Brazil.

In the third-place match between Italy and Uruguay, which was televised earlier on Sunday, 629,000 people watched the game on ESPN2 compared to the 435,000 people who watched the 2009 third-place match between Spain and South Africa.

Over on Univision, 6.4 million people watched the Spain-Brazil Confederations Cup on the Spanish-language network.
