Most-watched soccer games on US TV for February 18-24, 2020

TNT’s first two UEFA Champions League broadcasts of 2020 were down 22% from comparable matches in 2019. The network’s two opening broadcasts saw Atlético Madrid hosting Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur host RB Leipzig. These matches averaged just 282,500 viewers on TNT. On the Spanish-language side, UniMás, Galavision and TUDN combined for an audience of 347,500 viewers in the same window.

LaLiga ratings took a slight dip on beIN SPORTS last weekend, down from 99,943 average viewers across nine matches to 75,020 viewers across an equal number of matches this past weekend. Peak viewership for the league also saw a pretty heft drop from 363,837 for a match featuring Real Madrid on February 16 to 242,981 viewers for a clash between Barcelona and Eibar last Saturday.

The trend of MLS clubs drawing poor television numbers in the CONCACAF Champions League looks to be continuing in 2020. New York City FC’s victory in Costa Rica against San Carlos drew just 54,000 viewers to TUDN, with the Seattle Sounders’ match in Honduras against Olimpia performing slightly better at 65,000 viewers. Two days earlier, Cruz Azul’s away leg against Jamaican champions Portmore United drew 222,000 viewers to the network.
