FOX SPORTS 1 POSTS MOST-WATCHED UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE MATCHES EVER

 

Over Half A Million Viewers Witness Real Madrid Down Bayern Munich 1-0

 

The UEFA Champions League semifinals kicked off on FOX Sports 1 this week, leading to a viewership record on Tuesday (4/22) that was quickly topped on Wednesday (4/23).

 

Wednesday’s first leg match featuring Spanish heavyweights Real Madrid and defending European champions Bayern Munich, called by Gus Johnson and Eric Wynalda in Madrid, attracted 511,000 viewers, setting a new record for a UEFA Champions League match on FOX Sports 1, according to Nielsen. It is the biggest audience for a UEFA Champions League semifinal on any FOX channel in two years (Bayern Munich/Real Madrid, 2012 second leg – 627,000 on FX). Tuesday’s 0-0 draw between Barclays Premier League team Chelsea and Atletico Madrid scored 450,000 viewers, which stood as a record for a day and is now the second most-watched UEFA Champions League match televised by FOX Sports 1.
