TV Report: U.S. women's Victory Tour viewerships slump

Sunday's USA-Haiti women's match in ESPN3 averaged just 173,000 viewers, marking the lowest viewership on the 2015 Victory Tour. Each successive match has drawn few viewers. Haiti, which fielded a team of mostly teenagers, was a last-minute replacement for Australia, which pulled out because of a players' strike.

    Lame leadership from USSF. We should be playing a real schedule 13 here and 13 away of matches vs. Europe -7 (England, Germany, France, Netherlands, Sweden, Spain, Norway) Latin America -3 (Columbia, Mexico, Brazil) & Asia (Aust.,Japan, China) which would have raised $25m easy for USSF women's football and helped raise the game globally just like when Brazil did global tours in the late 1950's and 60's and played 100+ matches which raised the idea of global football.
