For Copa America Centenario, Univision averaged 3,099,625 viewers per game over the 32-game tournament.
The impressive numbers illustrate how perfect of a competition this was for Univision. Not only did it feature the popular Mexico and USA teams in North America, but the tournament was filled with some of the brightest teams as well as heavily supported Argentina, Colombia, Brazil, Chile and other South American nations in addition to teams from Central America and the Caribbean.
On Univision Deportes, the network averaged 2.9 million viewers per game, but the broadcasts of the final between Argentina-Chile (6.8 million viewers) as well as 5.6 million for the Mexico-Chile quarter-final significantly contributed to help increase the average.
For the entire tournament, the 6.8 million number helped Univision generate an average viewing audience of 2.9 million across all 32 matches on Univision Deportes, beating World Cup 2014 by +9,000 among Total Viewers 2+ and +64,000 among Adults 18-49 and making it the most viewed Copa America tournament ever among Total Viewers 2+. The tournament also out-delivered the 2015 Gold Cup by +53% among Total Viewers 2+ and +44% among Adults 18-49 and averaged more than four times the viewership among Total Viewers 2+ and Adults 18-49 versus Copa America 2015 on beIN Sports en Español.
