Top English-language TV soccer audiences (Jan. 27-Feb. 2)
[SOCCER ON THE AIR] The USA-South Korea men's friendly was the week's fourth most-viewed program in ESPN2, while the USA-Canada women's game was the week's sixth
most-viewed program the night before on Fox Sports 1.
The most-watched soccer game for the week of Jan. 27-Feb. 2: UniMas’ broadcast of the Mexico-South Korea game, which reached an
average of 3.2 million viewers, five times the largest audience for the most-watched match on English-language television, Stoke City-Man United.
-- While the USA-South Korea game was one
of the most-anticipated matches ever played in association with a U.S. January camp, the average viewership was down almost 17 percent from that for the USA-Canada game in 2013. One difference: the
USA-Canada game from Houston was played in midweek in prime time, while the USA-South Korea was a Saturday afternoon game.
