THIS JUST IN: GOLD CUP FINAL POSTS FOX SPORTS’ SECOND BEST SOCCER OVERNIGHT EVER…
The 2013 CONCACAF GOLD Cup Tournament concluded yesterday with the United States Men’s National Team defeating Panama 1-0 in the championship match broadcast live on FOX from Soldier Field in Chicago.  The game posted a 1.7/4 overnight household rating/share as Team USA won its 11th consecutive match, and fifth Gold Cup Championship (first since 2007).  Yesterday’s broadcast was +42% over the overnight rating posted by last Sunday’s Gold Cup quarterfinal match on FOX (1.2/3), and is FOX' second-highest metered market rating ever for a soccer match, trailing only a 1.8/5 for 2011's UEFA Champions League Final between Barcelona and Manchester United.  Kansas City led all markets with a 3.2/7, followed by San Diego (3.1/8) and Washington, DC  (3.0/7).
