FOX Sports averages 997k viewers for Copa America Centenario


Buoyed by the successful run that the United States made to the semi-finals of the competition, FOX Sports’ coverage of Copa America Centenario averaged 997,300 viewers per game.

The most-watched game of Copa America Centenario for FOX Sports was the 3.29 million people who tuned in to see the United States play Argentina on Tuesday, June 21 from 9-11pm ET. If the USA had beaten Argentina, FOX Sports would have probably broken their record for the most-watched soccer game on FOX Sports 1. As it was, the USA lost 0-3 to Argentina. FOX Sports 1’s most-watched soccer game still stands as the 4.7 million who saw the USA women’s team against Colombia last summer in the Women’s World Cup.

Outside of the USA games, the most-watched Copa America game on FOX Sports was the Argentina-Chile final that averaged 2.997 million. FOX Sports’ average, meanwhile, excluding USA games was 745,167 viewers per match. In comparison, ESPN is averaging 815,705 viewers per game for Euro 2016 to date.

While FOX Sports’ average of 997,300 viewers per game is impressive for the network, it paled in comparison to Univision whose average was 3.1 million per game.

    Viewership on fox would have been higher if they had the games on local ota TV like fox5. Univision broadcast every game without requiring a cable subscription.

    it’s just soccer
    nobody in the u.s. cares or ever will
    plus soccer is boring, un-American, and for rich white hipster douchebag losers
    average income of a soccer watcher in the u.s.: $92,200
    in the u.s., soccer is the sport of the 1%
    the 99% watch football, baseball, basketball, hockey, and whatever other sport there is besides soccer
