USA-Mexico - Equals Best Rating for ESPN's FIFA World Cup Qualifiers

Rivalry Boosts Current World Cup Qualifying Audience by 60 Percent vs. 2010

Last night's telecast of the 2-0 victory by the U.S. Men's National Team over archrival Mexico in Columbus, Ohio, delivered an average U.S. household rating of 1.4, matching the previous record for FIFA World Cup rating on ESPN for Mexico vs. USA on March 26, 2013, at Mexico City's Estadio Azteca, according to Nielsen Media.

The telecast was seen by an average audience of 2.243 million viewers (P2+) and 1.641 million television households.

The two USA-Mexico World Cup qualifying matches for Brazil 2014 have helped boost the average rating for the current round of qualifiers on ESPN television by 60 percent compared to the last series - a 0.8 US rating for eight matches of the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying series vs. 0.5 rating for the 2010 qualifiers.
