World Cup final draws nearly 26 million viewers in US

Across the English broadcast Fox Sports and Spanish broadcast on Telemundo, the men's 2022 Fifa World Cup final drew 25.783 million average viewers.

Fox alone brought in 16,783,000 viewers, short of the 2014 final on ABC between Germany and Argentina that drew 17.3 million. Fox had claimed the match was the "most-watched men's World Cup telecast in English-language television history," but ESPN's Bill Hofheimer pointed out the 2014 final along with the United States' match against Portugal in that World Cup, which drew 18.2 million on ESPN.
