888K viewers watched. Big number for MLS. RT @andy_busa Do you have the ESPN number for Portland Seattle on Sunday?— John Ourand (@Ourand_SBJ) June 26, 2012
To put this in context, this rating puts it above MLS Cup 2010 between glorious FC Dallas and famous Colorado Rapids. And is even higher than the average for all playoff matches on ESPN last year. It is also a very respectable 1/3 size of those who watched the England-Italy "pursefight". See this post on all the national broadcast ratings for this year.
