Soccer on U.S. Television August 2017

August was the second busiest soccer month of the year to date behind April and it’s no surprise when you consider all of the European leagues kicked off, MLS reached its halfway point, and the Liga MX Apertura entered its first full month of the season. Add in qualifying for the UEFA Champions League and Europa League and you’ve got a very busy month of soccer with nearly 10 matches per day.

The most-watched match of the month fell early in the month and easily held on to its place. The MLS All-Star Game featuring the MLS All-Stars and Real Madrid drew in nearly 2 million viewers on FS1 and Univision.

September will prove to be another busy soccer month, but who are we kidding… these days every month is a busy soccer month!
