TV: Sunday's Liga MX final was most-watched soccer match on U.S. network in nearly two years

When it comes to soccer on U.S. television, Liga MX is king.

Univision's coverage of Sunday's second leg of the Gran Final averaged 3 million viewers, making it the most-watched soccer match on U.S network in nearly two years and the top-rated club match on any network since December 2013 when Club America faced Leon in Liga MX's Gran Final on Univision.

Cruz Azul beat Santos to win the Liga MX title for the first time since 1997.

In 2019, Univision delivered 5.9 million viewers for the Gold Cup final between the USA and Mexico. Hours earlier, the USA-Netherlands match at the 2019 Women's World Cup final averaged almost 14.3 million viewers on Fox.
