American soccer TV viewing figures for July 25-31, 2016

World Cup Buzz at related • 0 views

The 348,000 viewers is the worst we have seen on the FOX broadcast network, and as one of only four MLS matches available free-to-air this year, it doesn't even crack the top 10 for English-language broadcasts.

But by putting the numbers for the two tournaments into context, we can see just how far the sport has come in this country.
