    Number of viewers [in US] on TV for the soccer finals this year, according to
    @Nielsen

    5,361m - UCL (CBS/Univ)
    2,495m - LMX AL2 (Univ)
    2,155m - MLS (FOX/Univ)
    2,137m - LMX AL1 (Univ)
    0,915m - NWSL (CBS)

    #MLS multiplied 2.3x to #NWSL and was in the range of #LigaMX. Very good.

    I wouldn't say that the NHL has declined in popularity so much as it is much more of a local market sport at this juncture. The NHL also has a very good combined media rights deal currently.

    How many kids are playing it and how much media play does it get vs how much $$$ those players are earning?

    t's on TNT and ESPN 3-4 nights a week. Once the NFL season has concluded it will also be shown on ABC on weekends. The combined deal is worth north of $600M/year. With Turner paying $225M annually and ESPN paying $400M annually.

    According to USA Hockey:

    In 2021-2022: 547K which is an increase of ~100K from the year prior.

    The NHL is not declining in popularity. The average revenue for an NHL team has more than doubled from 2005-2019, from $75 million to $164 million.

    Just wait until we host it in 2026.

    Records will be shattered both ratings wise and attendance wise.

    Ratings for the US-England game:

    https://deadline.com/2022/11/world-cup-ratings-usa-vs-england-fox-telemundo-1235182094/

    The United States went head-to-head with England on Friday in a historic World Cup match that drew 15.4M viewers for Fox.

    The current record holder is still the USA’s 2-2 draw against Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal in 2014, which was watched by 24.7M people.

    Another 4.6M tuned in via Telemundo Deportes’ Spanish-language coverage of the match on Telemundo, Peacock and digital platforms. That’s the second most-watched World Cup Group Stage Match featuring a U.S. team in Spanish-language history — up 33% for the U.S.’ first match against Wales.

    Yesterday, S&P 500 trading fell below its 10-day average as investors ditched their Bloomberg Terminals for a soccer match.

    This has happened before. When the USMNT was playing in the 2010 World Cup, US equities trading plunged 43%.
