More than 14 million Americans watched on television as the U.S. women’s soccer team clinched their fourth World Cup title, broadcaster Fox said.
Sunday’s match in Lyon, France, in which the United States beat the Netherlands 2-0, was seen by 14.3 million Americans on Fox and its cable sports channels. The record for the most-watched soccer match in U.S. history is held by the 2015 Women’s World Cup final between the United States and Japan, which was played in Canada. That match drew a television audience of 25.4 million Americans. Sunday’s television viewing figures do not include audiences in bars and those who watched on large outdoor screens across the United States.
