Fox Sports en Español Gets Kick from Soccer1/09/2004 2:34 AM Eastern
Fox Sports en Español’s live telecast of the Interliga soccer match between America and Atlante Jan. 4 was the highest-rated Spanish-language program last week, according to Nielsen Media Research.
The game -- played at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. -- delivered a 7.6 household-coverage rating from 7:30 p.m.-9:30 p.m. (PST), the network said.
The network holds the exclusive U.S. live-telecast rights to the entire Interliga qualifying tournament, which continues through Jan. 14. Three teams will emerge from the tournament to represent Mexico in the 2004 Copa Toyota Libertadores.
