The
CONCACAF Gold Cup final attracted 41 percent more television households in the

United States
than the Stanley Cup finals clincher — and that was just for the soccer game’s
Spanish-language telecast.

The
United States’ 2-1 come-from-behind victory over

Mexico
on Sunday received a 2.5 fast national rating on Univision, the network said
Tuesday. That translates to 2.83 million households, nearly double the 1.48
million homes that watched the 2005 Gold Cup final between the
United States and

Panama.

This
year’s English-language telecast was on the Fox Soccer Channel, which is
available in about 30 million homes and is not rated.

Anaheim
‘s series-ending 6-2 victory over

Ottawa in the Stanley Cup on June 6 received
a 1.8 rating on NBC, which comes to 2,005,000 households.

The rating
is the percentage watching a telecast among all homes with televisions, and a
ratings point represents 1,114,000 households.
