Liga MX Final Breaks USA Records

Mexican soccer continues to dominate soccer in the United States.

The Liga MX Apertura final between Club America and Tigres drew 5.4 million total viewers on Univision – dwarfing the ratings for a Premier League, Champions League, MLS or any other club match in 2014.

The highest rated European match in the US is normally the Champions League final, but the Liga MX final rating was 55 percent higher than when Real Madrid met Atletico Madrid in May for the European crown.

Polls show that the Mexican national team is America’s most popular team in any sport; they routinely fill stadiums for matches in the country and put up impressive TV ratings – but the figures for the final surprised everyone.
