Most-viewed soccer games in the USA: Dortmund-Real Madrid UCL final sets viewership milestone on CBS

Last week was all about the UEFA Champions League final as Real Madrid beat Dortmund 2-0 in the ultimate game at Wembley to lift the coveted title for a record-extending 15th time.

Dani Carvajal and Vinicius Junior scored the decisive goals in a match that garnered fantastic viewership numbers in the USA thanks to CBS, Univision, and TUDN.

A total of 3.62 million viewers across those three television networks caught this season's UEFA Champions League in the USA, earning the fixture a 1.4 rating and making it the most-watched sporting event in the entire nation on Saturday, June 1, 2024. This is up 6% from last season's viewership numbers, with 3.42 million tuning in to Manchester City's 1-0 victory over Inter Milan to secure the Cityzens the treble.

The bulk of those figures came from CBS, which earned 2.32 million viewers and a rating of 0.9. As a result, this became the third most-watched UEFA Champions League final on English-language television on record in the USA, sitting behind Liverpool vs. Real Madrid in 2022 (2.76M) and Barcelona vs. Manchester United on FOX in 2011 (2.58M).

Furthermore, just over 1.3 million average viewers caught the action across TelevisaUnivision's Spanish-language television networks Univision (1.3M) and TUDN (354,000). However, the UEFA Champions League was not the only continental final to make the list of most-watched soccer games in the USA for May 27-June 2, 2024.

First up for the 2016 champions is an exciting showdown with Luka Modric's Croatia on Saturday in what should be a tricky test for A Seleção. After that is Tuesday's battle with the Republic of Ireland as Cristiano and Co. look to translate their dominant form in the European Championship qualifiers to this month's tournament.

In preparation for this highly-anticipated tournament, the Stars and Stripes will face two South American giants, the first being Colombia live this Saturday.

However, all eyes will be on Wednesday when the CONCACAF Nations League champions host five-time FIFA World Cup champions Brazil at Camping World Stadium in Orlando.

Both games are live on Peacock, Max, TNT USA, and Telemundo — the Colombia showdown will also be available on Universo.

Mexico vs. Brazil live this Saturday at 8:30 p.m. ET on Fox Deportes, Univisión, and TUDN USA

From one team invited to the 2024 Copa America to another, Mexico gear up for their thrilling showdown with Brazil just days after losing 4-0 to Uruguay. The Selecao, meanwhile, have struggled since their 2022 FIFA World Cup exit, winning only four out of their last 11 fixtures, and will need to rekindle their form immediately before the CONMEBOL tournament kicks off on June 20.

MLS Season Pass: Full list of games to stream on June 8, 2024

It may not be the typical weekend for all Major League Soccer fans, but that does not mean they will not get to enjoy some fine fixtures.

This weekend, the North American league will only see eight teams going at it on Saturday, with pending fixtures being held all over the country. There will be a diverse field of teams playing this weekend, with some of the top clubs in each conference and others that are trying to go back to the upper half of their respective tables.

Luckily for them, MLS Season Pass will be there for them to follow every single match being held on Saturday.

The platform will include all four games being played during the weekend, with the streaming service powered by Apple TV ready to cover all matches in two different time slots. 

Things will get going with New England vs. New York RB. Both these clubs are included in the Eastern Conference, but New York is closer to the top spot. 

The second time slot will be packed, starting with Minnesota United vs. Dallas, a game where the hosts can come closer to the top of the Western Conference. Dallas have not been able to win any of their last four, which may give you a hint on who could claim all the points here.

This week in women's soccer, NWSL, Liga F, Barcelona, Kansas City Current, Orlando Pride, Seattle Reign, Washington Spirit 

It's a relatively quiet week on the women's soccer front, but there are still quite a few games you will not want to miss.

Here's all you need to know ahead of another week in women's soccer.

What to watch in women's soccer: June 7th to June 9th

NWSL

Can anyone stop the Orlando Pride? That will be the question on many fans' minds as the 2024 NWSL season resumes action on Friday, June 7th after a short hiatus. At the moment, Orlando Pride are the most in-form team in the league, with eight consecutive wins seeing them now sitting on top of the table by two points. They will be traveling to take on the San Diego Wave this Friday and given their impressive showings to date, the current league leaders are the heavy favorites to make it a ninth win on the trot and extend their lead to five in what is shaping up to be a very interesting early battle for the NWSL title.

Meanwhile, Kansas City Current, who were on top of the table but now have been overtaken by the resurgent Orlando Pride, will look to remain within touching distance of the league leaders when they face Seattle Reign on Sunday. Given that the Reign come into this game sitting in the penultimate spot in the table and have lost their last three matches, it is safe to assume that the Current should have no problems picking up a crucial three points to try to ensure they don't start slipping behind in this season's title race.

On Saturday, Washington Spirit, who also have been in excellent form lately, will also be seeking to pick up maximum points. The Spirit currently sit in third ahead of this week's round of matches, but could temporarily leap-frog Kansas City Current into the second spot if they, as expected, beat a Utah Royals side who currently sit bottom of the table.

Liga F

Moving on to Europe, Liga F is still ongoing. Although Barcelona have already won the title with plenty of games to spare, the Blaugrana will still look to finish their season off on the right note when they host Real Betis this Sunday. Last season saw Barcelona lose their unbeaten streak in the league following a 2-1 loss to Madrid on the final matchday, and it goes without saying that the Blaugrana will be determined to avoid a similar result in their last two games of the 2023-24 Liga F season.

Other games to keep an eye on include Granada vs. Levante, Villarreal vs. Sporting De Huelva, and Levante Las Palmas vs. Valencia. With Sporting de Huelva already eliminated, there are three teams desperately scrambling to avoid the drop: Villarreal (15th, 22 points), Granada (14th, 24 points), and Levante Las Palmas (13th, 24 points). Real Betis, who sit in 12th on 27 points, appear to be out of the danger zone for now but will be facing a tough test against Barcelona meaning that a negative result from that game, coupled with good results for Villarreal, Granada, and Levante Las Palmas could see Real Betis potentially facing a rather nervy end to the 202-/24 Liga F campaign. 

Damallsvenskan, Toppserien, and Elitedivisionen

In Scandinavia, the top leagues in women's soccer are all still in process, with ongoing title races in Sweden's Damallsvenskan, Denmark's Elitedivisionen, and Norway's Toppserien.  

What to watch in women's soccer: June 10th to June 13th

Damallsvenskan

Fans of Sweden's top league will have matches to tune into over the next few days on Wednesday, June 12th, and Thursday, June 13th. Make sure you check out our match page to tune into key games from Sweden taking place this week.

Carvajal makes history with Champions League goal vs Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund seemed to have the upper hand in the UEFA Champions League final, but Dani Carvajal came out of nowhere to give Los Merengues the lead while earning a spot in the competition's history.

The right-back ended Real Madrid's wait for a goal after a corner kick by Toni Kroos. It was the second attempt on goal for Carvajal, but this time the Spaniard was able to beat Kobel to find the back of the net.

After the goal, sources from all over the globe revealed a milestone achieved by the former Bayer Leverkusen ace as he became the oldest Los Blancos player to score in a UEFA Champions League final. Read more…

Manchester City superstar opens the door to shocking Saudi Pro League move this summer

Manchester City recently won a fourth Premier League title in a row, a feat no other club has achieved. However, the English champions could be in for a tricky summer as one of their most important players shockingly opened the door to an Etihad Stadium exit.

That man is Kevin de Bruyne, regarded by many as the best midfielder in the Premier League. The Belgian superstar racked up an impressive 18 assists last season despite missing the first half of the season, thus reminding everyone of his quality.

However, with only one year left on his contract, his future remains up in the air. A move to Saudi initially appeared unlikely for the former Chelsea player. However, in an interview with Het Laatste Nieuws, De Bruyne all but confirmed he is open to joining the Middle-Eastern league. Read more…

Cristiano sends touching message to Mbappe after Frenchman completes Real Madrid move

Soccer's worst-kept secret was finally announced on Monday. Kylian Mbappe, the French sensation on Real Madrid's radar for years, has completed his move to Santiago Bernabeu.

The UEFA Champions League winners made the announcement just days after beating Dortmund at Wembley to win their 15th European Cup. The former PSG ace joins Los Blancos on a five-year deal, thus bringing an end to this extended transfer saga.

And to top things off, the 25-year-old received a touching congratulatory message from his icon upon completing this dream move. None other than Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid's all-time top scorer, took to Instagram to welcome the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner to the Spanish capital. Read more…

Madrid-bound Mbappe says "people made me unhappy" at PSG

Real Madrid attacker Kylian Mbappe said on Tuesday "things and people made me unhappy" at Paris Saint-Germain before he signed a five-year deal with the Spanish club.

France's Mbappe, 25, will join the La Liga champions for next season in a long-rumoured move having spent seven campaigns in the French capital.

During PSG's tour of Japan and South Korea last summer, the club's management threatened to ban Mbappe from playing after he had told them he was planning on leaving the Parc des Princes this year. Read more…

Grealish left out of England squad for Euro 2024

Jack Grealish was a shock omission from England's Euro 2024 squad as Gareth Southgate axed the Manchester City winger on Thursday after his disappointing end to the season.

Grealish paid the price for a significant dip in form in the second half of this season as he became the most high-profile star to be dropped from Southgate's provisional 33-man squad.

The 28-year-old was an unused substitute during City's FA Cup final defeat against Manchester United in May after being left out of the Premier League champions' title-winning game against West Ham.

The City forward wasn't the only big name to miss out on a place in the England squad as Manchester United defender Harry Maguire and Tottenham playmaker James Maddison were also axed. Read more…

Man City launch legal action against Premier League commercial rules - report

Manchester City have launched legal action against the Premier League alleging "discrimination" in a move that could have far-reaching consequences for the English top flight, The Times reported on Tuesday.

The Times said the recently crowned champions would try to end the league's associated party transaction (APT) rules, which they are understood to claim are unlawful, and seek damages.

The Premier League tightened rules regarding APTs, relating to clubs signing sponsorship deals with companies linked to their owners, in February.

The Times added the dispute between City and the Premier League would be settled after a two-week arbitration hearing starting next Monday. Read more…

Premier League clubs vote to retain VAR

English Premier League clubs voted on Thursday in favor of continuing to use the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system next season.

Although the statement did not contain figures for the ballot, held at the Premier League's annual general meeting, the BBC reported that 19 of the division's 20 clubs had voted to retain the controversial technology.

The BBC said only Wolves --  who last month called the vote to scrap the system -- had backed the abolition of VAR. Read more…
