US-Netherlands Sets Women’s World Cup Group Stage Ratings Record

Jul 28, 2023

USA-Netherlands resulted in a 1-1 draw on the pitch, but it was a win for FOX as it was the most-watched group stage Women’s World Cup match ever for an English-language network.

FOX scored a record 6.429 million viewers for Wednesday’s match in New Zealand, according to Sports TV Ratings. It makes back-to-back strong showings for FOX in its first two Women’s World Cup broadcasts, as the USWNT’s first game against Vietnam averaged 5,261,000 viewers on FOX, ranking as the network’s third-most watched group stage telecast since FOX started covering the WWC in 2015.

Telemundo’s Spanish-language broadcast of Wednesday’s match drew 1.165 million viewers, totaling nearly 8 million U.S. viewers.
