Mexico-Netherlands match sets viewer record
Jun. 30, 2014
NEW YORK (AP) — With 10.4 million viewers on Univision, Sunday's World Cup match between Mexico and the Netherlands is the most-watched Spanish-language broadcast in U.S. television history.
The Nielsen company said Monday that beat the previous record of 9.4 million for a match between Mexico and Argentina in the 2010 World Cup.
The Mexico-Netherlands game was also seen by 6.6 million people on ESPN — meaning a total of 17 million watched. ESPN said it was the most-watched soccer game for an English-language station in the United States that did not involve the U.S. team.
