Most-watched soccer games for Sept. 25-Oct. 1, 2017

Club América’s 2-1 victory over Toluca was the most-watched soccer match of last week with 955,000 viewers tuning in across Univision and Univision Deportes. It was also the most-watched Liga MX match since Club América took on Veracruz on September 9 in the same timeslot.

Overall, Liga MX viewership is down over 40% when compared to the first 11 match days of the 2017 Clasura and down 32% compared to the 2016 Apertura. Total viewership has also seen a drop, though not as large, down 29% from the 2017 Clasura and down 18% from the 2016 Apertura.

Things are looking better for NBC as the Premier League has seen a 24% increase in average viewership through the first two months of the season. The much-anticipated clash between Manchester City and Chelsea averaged 550,000 viewers on NBCSN and a season high 114,000 viewers on Spanish-language NBC Universo.

After 22 broadcasts, the National Women’s Soccer League ends the regular season averaging 93,136 viewers on Lifetime. Up from 61,000 for three regular season broadcasts on FS1 in 2016.
