LAST NIGHT’S USA WOMEN’S WORLD CUP FINAL VICTORY WAS THE MOST WATCHED SOCCER GAME IN THE STATES – EVER

I said in my previous post:
Surely the final must beat the 13.5 million for the 2011 final, might struggle against the 1999 18 million viewers but if the USA ladies get off to a positive start then then who knows? With no real competition on Sunday anythings possible.’

First issued Sunday ratings (called the ‘Fast Nationals’) are out last nights USA Women’s World Cup Final victory over Japan was the highest rated soccer game in the U.S. ever with a massive 20.35 million viewers and a 6.4 rating.

It helped that the U.S. ladies broke Japan down with a 4 goal blitz within the first half an hour. Japan tried valiantly to salvage some pride with 2 goals which meant it wasn’t going to be the blowout that would have the viewers reaching for the celebratory beers and switching off the game. In the end USA scored a 5th and final goal to make them 3 time champs.

I’ll update with the final issued ratings which will probably be out tomorrow.

  1. For a US rooter it was an exhilarating match. Probably will be my favorite sports event in 2015. My hat’s off to Japan, too. The Japanese women don’t quit and are a professional, classy bumch. BTW, I was rooting for England in the 3rd place game. Steph Houghton had a monster game. Though the officiating was a bit poor, it was a great victory for England and its football program!
