Liga MX final outdraws EPL and NHL
[SOCCER ON THE AIR] Sunday's broadcast of the Liga MX Clausura 2014 final between Pachuca and Leon on UniMas averaged 2.5 million viewers, making it the most
watched soccer match on any U.S. network (English- or Spanish-language) in 2014.
The prime-time match had 100 percent more total viewers and 191 percent more adults than the most-viewed
EPL match on NBC in the recently completed 2013-14 season (Cardiff-Swansea in February).

CNBC in the 2014 playoffs to date.
The Liga MX final made UniMas the No. 1 broadcast station in the game's time period among viewers in Los Angeles and adults 18-49 and adults 18-34
in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
