Most-watched soccer games in the USA: May 13-19, 2024

The viewership numbers for soccer games aired in the USA on May 13-19, 2024, are in. While this week coincided with the exciting end to the 2023-24 Premier League season, Liga MX took center stage — to no one's surprise — due to the second leg Clausura semifinals.

Topping the viewership chart is Club America's clash with bitter rivals Guadalajara as Mexico's two biggest teams battled it out for a spot in the final. Nearly 1.35 million average viewers tuned in to Univision to catch this showdown as the Eagles beat Chivas 1-0 to progress to the final round. Meanwhile, an additional 339,00 average viewers opted for TUDN's coverage of the game.

In second place is the other Clausura semifinal: Cruz Azul vs. Monterrey. These two sides faced off on Sunday, with La Máquina progressing to the final despite losing 2-1 at home. This tie also earned over one million average viewers for Univision — 1,079,000, to be precise — and garnered a 0.53 rating.

Wrapping things up is the title-deciding match in the Premier League. Manchester City hosted West Ham on Championship Sunday, the final day of the 2023-24 season. The Cityzens simply needed to beat the Hammers to lift a historic fourth consecutive title, and they did just that, triumphing 3-1 thanks to a Phil Foden brace.

This match earned 847,000 average viewers for NBC as Guardiola's side became the first team in history to win four Premier League trophies in a row. City finished on 91 points, two more than nearest rivals Arsenal (89) who beat Everton 2-1 on the final day in vain.

Coppa Italia Femminile

Friday will also feature the final of the 2023-24 Coppa Italia Femminile. Roma, who successfully defended their Scudetto crown, have a chance to make it a domestic double as they face Fiorentina, who are aiming to win what would be their third Coppa Italia and first since the 2017-18 season. Viewers in the USA can live stream that match starting at 3:30 p.m. ET (12:30 p.m. PT) on DAZN USA.

UEFA Women's Champions League

The final of the 2023/24 UEFA Women's Champions League gets underway on Saturday, May 24th with two of the world's best teams going toe to toe for the coveted prize. Barcelona, who have already won the Liga F title, are hoping to defend their crown after winning it last season and make it a third success in this competition.

It's sure to be a highly entertaining affair, and USA-based fans are in luck because the match will be live-streamed via DAZN USA starting at 12:00 p.m. ET (9 a.m. PT).

Liga F

Although Barcelona will not be involved in Liga F action, there will still be plenty of matches for fans to catch over the next few days. On Friday, Atletico Madrid, who sit in third, will look to make it a fifth win on the trot when they host Levante Las Palmas. Fans can tune into that match starting at 2 p.m. ET. Other games taking place this round include Villarreal, who are facing a battle to avoid the drop, aiming to improve their fortunes against fourth-placed Levante in a road match on Saturday (kick-off at 6 a.m. ET).

Meanwhile, for fans in the USA, DAZN USA will be live-streaming two Liga F matches on Sunday, May 26th. The doubleheader starts with Real Sociedad vs. Real Madrid at 10:30 a.m. ET, with the hosts hoping to make it two wins on the bounce after a rough spell while the visiting side will look to recover after seeing their winning streak snapped following a loss last round.
