Club America beat Cruz Azul to lift the title in what was the most-watched soccer game in the USA on May 20-26, 2024.

The Liga MX Clausura wrapped up over the weekend, with the final between Club America and Cruz Azul garnering impressive viewership numbers in the USA.

These two Mexican heavyweights faced off over two legs, with the second encounter garnering over two million average viewers on Univision alone. 2,104,000 average viewers tuned in to TelevisaUnivision's Spanish-language TV network to watch Club America win 1-0 and lift the trophy, thus earning this tie a 0.8 rating.

Henry Martin scored the decisive goal in the 78th minute to secure a 2-1 aggregate victory, with the first leg ending in a one-all draw. This comes six months after the Eagles beat Tigres UANL to lift the 2023 Apertura back in mid-December.

TUDN, meanwhile, earned nearly half a million average viewers for the second leg of the Clausura final, with precisely 428,000 tuning in. However, the fixture suffered a decrease in viewership from last year.

The previous Clausura final registered a whopping 2.94 million average viewers on Telemundo, earning a 1.0 rating. The viewership numbers for the first leg of this year's Clausura final were also down from last year.

Due to the state of play in Liga MX and Europe's major leagues, only a handful of soccer matches made it into the list of most-watched matches in the USA on May 20-26, 2024. This includes TUDN's coverage of the first leg of the Clausura final, which took the third spot on the podium with just under 300,000 average viewers. Additionally, a couple of NWSL matches made the cut.
