Most-watched soccer games on US TV for March 2-9, 2020

Last Sunday’s Manchester Derby averaged 1.7 million viewers on NBC and Telemundo, making it the most-watched Premier League match on American television of all time and the most-watched soccer match on American television in 2020. This brings the average audience for Premier League matches on NBC up to 823,040 during the 2019-2020 season thus far.

Univision also saw a viewership high last weekend, averaging 1.5 million viewers for Club América’s match against Pumas last Friday night. It is the largest audience for a non-SuperClásico Liga MX match since 2017, and the second most-watched soccer match on American television so far in 2020.

It has been a strong opening two-weeks of the MLS season for ESPN, last week averaging 399,000 viewers when Portland Timbers hosted expansion side Nashville SC. This beat out all but one of ESPN’s MLS broadcasts in 2019. For FS1, it was a different story entirely. Their broadcast featuring Los Angeles FC and Philadelphia Union averaged just 124,000, a bad sign for a network that averaged just 158,000 viewers for MLS matches in 2019.
