The U.S. Women’s National Team continues to kick up big ratings for Fox Sports 1.
Last night’s USA-Columbia Women’s World Cup game, which the USA won 2-0 to move on to face China this Friday, drew 4.7 million viewers, a FS1 record audience for a soccer game, the network said Tuesday.
The game upended the 3.3 million viewers FS1 garnered with its USA-Australia game last week in finishing as the most watched soccer match on cable since last year’s World Cup, said network officials.
Overall the game is the third most-watched program in FOX Sports 1 history, trailing only Game 4 (5.1 million) and Game 5 (4.9 million) of the 2014 National League Championship Series featuring the St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants, said the network.
On the digital front, the USA - Colombia game delivered FOX Sports GO over 120,000 unique streamers, making it the highest viewed simulcast in the app’s history, besting the 2014 World Series Game 7 simulcast by +17% (103,000 uniques), said Fox Sports.
