Most-watched soccer games on U.S. TV: Feb. 2-8

February 10, 2021 By Juan Aguerrevere
The Premier League dominated soccer viewership in the United States in back-to-back weeks through NBC and NBC Sports Network landing a total of 12 broadcasts to Showbuzzdaily's top 150 cable originals and network finals from Tuesday, Feb. 2, through Monday, Feb. 8.

The most-viewed game of the week was Manchester City's 4-1 away win against reigning Premier League Champions Liverpool on NBCSN. The game scored a 0.34 viewership rating after 973,000 average viewers saw the Reds fall in their fortress for a second time in a span of four days. NBC broadcasted the second most successful soccer game of the week in Fulham and West Ham's goalless draw. The game attracted 681,000 average viewers and received a 0.43 viewership rating. The 3-3 draw between Manchester United and Everton at Old Trafford screened by NBCSN on Saturday was the third most-watched game of the week with 592,000 average viewers and a 0.20 viewership rating. NBCSN had a total of 3,997,000 average viewers across its 11 Premier League games and went past the four million mark with the screening of an FA Women's Super League game between Manchester City and Arsenal that attracted 90,000 viewers.

TUDN was the second most successful channel last week with seven Liga MX Clausura broadcasts adding up to 1,657,000 average viewers. The most successful of the pack was Club America's 1-0 victory over Puebla on Saturday at 7:57 p.m. The transmission received a 0.15 viewership rating after 426,000 average viewers enjoyed the game.

Fox Deportes had a healthy mix of two FIFA Club World Cup games and one Liga MX game to entertain fans with last week. The most successful of the three broadcasts was the Club World Cup semifinal between Palmeiras and Tigres, which was won by Tigres 1-0 via an Andre-Pierre Gignac penalty conversion. The game was seen by an average of 372,000 viewers and received a 0.17 rating.

Lastly, beIN Sport Español and beIN Sport broadcasted the same La Liga Santander game between Real Betis and Barcelona on Sunday at 2:50 p.m. ET. Barcelona won the game 3-2 and the Spanish language channel performed better, driving 217,000 viewers to its broadcast compared to beIN Sport's 70,000.
