Lack of American Presence is Hurting Fox's World Cup Ratings

Viewership for the 2018 World Cup on Fox (FOXA) is down about a third from its 2014 broadcast, according to the Wall Street Journal, no doubt partially thanks to the lack of a U.S. presence at the global soccer tournament.

The U.S. failed to qualify for the tournament, which is watched by over a billion people worldwide every four years, for the first time since 1986.

Fox is spending $900 million on rights to broadcast soccer matches through the 2026 World Cup, which will be hosted by Canada, Mexico and the United States.
