Wednesday’s UEFA Champions League broadcast of Barcelona against Manchester City set a record for the most-watched soccer game on FOX Sports 1 to date, with 420,000 viewers tuning in to see Barca win 2-1.

That compares to Tuesday’s broadcast of Bayern Munich versus Arsenal, which was seen by 363,000 viewers on FOX Sports 1, which is the third most-watched Champions League game on FOX Sports 1 behind Manchester City vs Barcelona (395,000 viewers) on February 18.

The pre-game show on FOX Sports 1 for both the Barca-City and Bayern-Arsenal matches was hosted by Will Selva and was joined by analysts Eric Wynalda, Brian McBride and Warren Barton. The UEFA Champions League Pregame Show drew 118,000 viewers on Tuesday and Wednesday, tied for the highest-watched UEFA Champions League pregame show of all-time on FOX Sports 1.

Next week’s UEFA Champions League matches on FOX Sports 1 feature Chelsea-Galatasaray and Manchester United-Olympiacos (see TV schedule).
