This may come as a surprise for most Americans, but the world cup is by far, the most viewed sports event in the world. Almost 10 times more people tune in to enjoy the world cup than to watch the Super Bowl. In 2014, the audience reached over 3,2 Billion, meaning, at one point or another, 46% of the world was watching the World Cup. U.S citizens and German citizens were a big part of that. Of course is just not fair to compare the Super Bowl and the world cup, one being local and the other international, but is a good way to show the cup’s size.
