FOX sets record with Liverpool-Chelsea

BY foxsports • February 9, 2011

FOX set two ''football'' ratings records Sunday.

Liverpool's 1-0 win at Chelsea was seen by 285,000 households and 418,000 viewers, both highs for FOX Soccer Channel. The game, which began at 11 a.m. EST, featured Fernando Torres' debut for Chelsea, which bought him from Liverpool earlier in the week for $80 million.

Later in the day, FOX's coverage of Green Bay's Super Bowl victory over Pittsburgh received a 46.0 rating and was seen by a 111 million people — a record for a U.S. broadcast.
