NBC POSTS RECORD-SETTING SOCCER WEEKEND WITH MOST-WATCHED PREMIER LEAGUE & MLS MATCHES

Sunday's Manchester United-Chelsea Match Averages 1.29 Million Viewers

Landon Donovan's Final Regular-Season Game on Saturday (Seattle Sounders-LA Galaxy) Averages 699,000 Viewers

NBC Sports Group Has Televised 7 of Premier League's 10 Most-Watched Live Matches in U.S.

STAMFORD, Conn. - October 30, 2014 - NBC set Premier League and MLS viewership records with a pair of match telecasts last weekend.

Last Sunday's Manchester United-Chelsea match - a 1-1 tie at Old Trafford - averaged 1.29 million viewers on NBC to rank as the most-watched Premier League game since NBC Sports Group kicked off its BPL coverage in August 2013.

In its 15 months televising the Premier League, NBC Sports Group has aired 7 of the league's 10 most-watched live games on U.S. television.

Sunday's game, which was NBC's first BPL match on a Sunday afternoon (and had competition from live NFL games), is the second-most watched live game in the U.S. in Premier League history (Manchester United-Chelsea, 2/5/12 on Fox, 1.38 million).

Saturday's Seattle Sounders-LA Galaxy game on NBC, a 2-0 Sounders victory that was Landon Donovan's final regular-season MLS game and decided the Supporters' Shield (most regular-season points), averaged 699,000 viewers to rank as NBC Sports Group's most-watched MLS game ever (including playoffs).

NBC Sports Group's soccer coverage continues this weekend with six live matches.
