Video: FIFA Hails 'milestone' ESPN Rating For US-Portugal

By Clip Syndicate
FIFA has hailed the TV rating in the United States for the World Cup match between the Americans and Portugal as a milestone for the sport. The 24.7 million television viewers were "spectacular figures" for a group-stage match, FIFA's director of television Niclas Ericson said Tuesday. ESPN got 18.2 million viewers for the 2-2 draw on Sunday, and 6.5 million more watched on Spanish-language network Univision. Ericson said the ESPN rating beats the average for the five NBA finals games this month and the six World Series games last October. The FIFA official said, "We see it as an important milestone in the audience history of soccer in the U.S."
