Media Records Broken

Winners & Losers – ABC/ESPN & Univision


Yet another record broken in this year’s World Cup was TV ratings.  Univision saw an increase of 34% of total audience vs. 2010. ABC/ESPN was up 39% in viewership vs. 2010. However, both networks lost the bid for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, to be held in Russia, to Telemundo and Fox, respectively.
