Brazil-Chile: ESPN/ABC's Highest-Rated Non-U.S. Team Match Ever in FIFA World Cup Round of 16

Saturday's Brazil vs. Chile match on ABC - a thriller in which host nation Brazil advanced to the quarterfinals of the 2014 FIFA World Cup on penalty kicks - earned a 3.8 US household rating and 6,142,000 viewers, based on Nielsen fast nationals, making it the highest-rated non-U.S. team match ever in the Round of 16. Overall, the Brazil-Chile rating ranks third among all Round of 16 matches, behind only USA-Brazil (9.3 on July 4, 1994) and USA-Ghana (8.5 on June 26, 2010).

Through the first 50 matches, ESPN's coverage of the 2014 FIFA World Cup is averaging a 2.3 rating and 3,653,000 viewers, increases of 28 percent (1.8 in 2010) and 31 percent (2,791,000), respectively, from four years ago. To date, the highest-rated markets on the ESPN networks are Washington, D.C. (4.1), New York (3.7), San Francisco (3.5), Los Angeles (3.3) and Orlando (3.2).
