Most-Watched Soccer Game in U.S. TV: Oct. 12-18

October 21, 2021 By Juan Aguerrevere
Chelsea’s 1-0 away win at Brentford Community Stadium was the most-watched game on U.S. TV from Tuesday, Oct. 12, through Monday, Oct. 18.

NBC’s Premier League broadcast of Brentford-Chelsea on Saturday, Oct. 16, scored a 0.44 viewership rating after averaging 760,000 viewers. Wing-back Ben Chilwell’s volleyed goal just before halftime and goalkeeper Edouard Mendy’s six saves helped separate the Blues from the Bees. The close victory helped Chelsea maintain the first position in the league after eight matchdays.

A CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying match between the United States and Costa Rica was the second most-watched game on U.S. television. The USMNT defeated Los Ticos 2-1 at Lower.com Field in Columbus, Ohio, on Wednesday, Oct. 13. Wing-back Sergino Dest and forward Tim Weah were key in the Stars and Stripes’ win that averaged 651,000 viewers.

NBC Sports Network’s screening of Tottenham’s 3-2 win against Newcastle at St. James’ Park came in third place with 483,000 average viewers. The Spurs’ three first-half goals were enough to edge out the Toons away from home. Leicester City’s 4-2 home win against Manchester United came close to securing a spot in the top three games watched on U.S. TV last week. The broadcast on NBCSN reached 480,000 average viewers.
