The record audience for the US’ 2-0 win over the Netherlands was up 22% over the 11.4 million viewers for the 2018 men’s FIFA World Cup final, according to Nielsen. And overall, the event was the most-watched English-language televised soccer match in the US since the 2015 Women’s World Cup Final. That game saw 22 million viewers for the US’ win against Japan in 2015.

The discrepancy in viewership could be partially explained by the fact that the US-Netherlands game was played at 11 AM ET; the 2015 USA-Japan game was played in primetime.

Overall, household ratings for the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019 were up 2% over full tournament ratings for 2015 and were up +11% over the full 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup, according to Nielsen.

On Spanish-language network Telemundo, the game averaged a total audience delivery of 1.6 million viewers, up 22% from the 2015 final, according to the network.

Earlier in the tournament, Fox's U.S.-France quarterfinal telecast was the most-watched FIFA Women’s World Cup quarterfinal ever, and the coverage of the USA’s win over Chile was the most-watched FIFA Women’s World Cup group stage match ever, according to Fox Sports.

The results come as out-of-home viewership was shown also to have surged during the final.
