The US Women’s Soccer Final viewership was down by almost half this year thanks to the Trump-bashing, anthem protesting US national team.
After weeks of hyping the World Cup tournament the final match between the US and The Netherlands had a viewership that was down 43.8 percent from the last World Cup final in 2015.
The Associated Press reported:
The United States’ 2-0 victory over the Netherlands in Sunday’s FIFA Women’s World Cup final averaged nearly 15.6 million U.S. viewers on English- and Spanish-language television.
It was the most-viewed match this season, but a decrease from the 2015 final.
The match averaged 14.27 million viewers on Fox, according to the network and Nielsen, and peaked at 19.6 million. It was a 22 percent increase over last year’s FIFA World Cup men’s final between France and Croatia, which averaged 11.44 million.
The audience was down 43.8 percent from the 2015 final between the U.S. and Japan, which averaged 25.4 million viewers. That match though was played in Canada and started at 7 p.m. Eastern, compared to Sunday’s in France, which kicked off at 11 a.m. Eastern.
Prior to last weekend’s big game, the team had also taken to making false allegations about unfair pay and demanding that they be paid as much as their male counterparts. But missing from their grievance-laced rants was any notion of reality.
“Last year, the men’s World Cup in Russia generated more than $6 billion in revenue; the participating teams shared about $400 million,” The Federalist reported earlier this week.
“That is less than 7 percent of overall revenue. Meanwhile, the 2019 Women’s World Cup made somewhere in the region of $131 million, doling out $30 million, well more than 20 percent of collected revenue, to the participating teams. It seems a pay gap does exist, after all.”
That’s right, members of the women’s soccer team earn a higher percentage of revenue than their male counterparts. Yet member’s of the women’s team keep complaining about wages, which speaks again to their stunning egotism and narcissism.
