I have heard rumblings that the ESPN's 2014 WC tv ratings are going to be big in the US.

With most games played in late afternoon and early evening ESPN's TV ratings may just double the 2010 WC TV ratings in the US.

The USMNT will be in store for some huge TV ratings as well. With most of their games being played in early eastern timezone evenings.

MLS will see an uptick in TV ratings as well. Especially if the USMNT, that will consist of almost half of the roster with MLS players, makes a good run at the WC.

I am really excited for not only the WC this up coming summer, but the massive implications it can have for MLS.

Recently an article came out in Forbes that basically stated that MLS is on the rise in the American sport landscape. With the next 5 to 10 years MLS could very well be just behind the NFL in TV ratings and attendance.

Is a world cup if it doesn't have higher ratings than the Superbowl it would be disappointing. Specially us soccer games they should have massive ratings no matter what time they play. also cant wait for fox or CBS even NBC to show every single us soccer game. ESPN has the worse coverage of all time in soccer.

I know a lot of my friends, especially the ones that play soccer with me, only watch the World Cup and that is he only time they really support the USMNT. Even a lot of my friends that don't play soccer look forward to the World Cup. The ratings will be huge.
