Copa America

Univision’s Copa America coverage averaged 3.1 million viewers


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.

    Gentlemen: I am very dissapointed with the media that gives more importance to the fact that messi renounces the argentinian team ( this names in lower case because they need to come down from the cloud of pride they had for centuries and I think tey did). The cup in itself it is of the most importance because it is a Centennial cup, meaning there is no other, it is the one and only, the next within 100 years will be the Bicentennial cup.
    The Chilean Team has not received the recognition it deserves, they played outstanding games, it is the best team of the Americas, period.
    That argentinian player that is called the best player in the world, showed in this final game that he is nobody without the help of the rest of the team. he is good with his buddies in Spain only.
    There are three possibilities in this quitting, first to diminish the chilean winning, second he is sincerily feeling bad for his failure and third feeling bad about the way the coach and other players played the game.
    This said man in desperation tried to create a penalty during the game, it did not work, he created a foul against him, as a result a chilean player got a red card, he was expelled from the game, that is not a fair way to play soccer, that is one of the reasons they lost!
    Is he really the best player in the world? I don’t think so!
    There is a lot more to say about this, but I am going to say only this: Chile proved that it is the best team in the Americas and probably in the world, we will see it in the Confederations cup to be played in 2017 to which argentina is out by loosing to Chile in the America cup 2015.
    That being said: Viva CHILE! (Long live CHILE!)
