Soccer on U.S. Television February 2018

Did you know there are 672 total hours in February? Yeah, me either. If a soccer game lasts two hours, then there were more than 500 hours of soccer coverage in February, which means, well… if you watched every game, you spent almost 75 percent of February watching TV. Congrats to you!

So, what did you watch? Well, in February we had all the major leagues in Europe, including the third most-watched game of the month – Manchester City vs. Leicester on NBC and NBC Universo. The UEFA Champions League continued and there were a few big match-ups, including the first leg of Chelsea vs. Barcelona – the most-watched UEFA Champions League game in February.

Here in North America, the Concacaf Champions League continued and Club América and its fans brought the heat, making both legs of the club’s match-up with Saprissa the most-watched Champions League (CONCACAF or UEFA) games of the month. Not surprisingly, América or Chivas played in the four most-watched Liga MX games.

What can we look forward to in March? Well, first off, spring is in the air. Secondly, the return of MLS, some big bouts in CONCACAF Champions League, second legs of the UEFA Champions League, and International friendlies as the World Cup draws nearer and nearer.
