Led by Peacock, NBC Sports set a record for a simulstreamed Premier League match, with an average minute audience of 510,000 viewers in the most watched top-flight fixture in US history.

In addition, 382,000 fans tuned in to the Spanish-language broadcast on Telemundo - marking the highest Spanish-language Premier League audience since 440,000 watched Manchester City's 2-2 draw with Liverpool in April 2022.

The record-breaking audience reflects the Premier League's growing appeal in the United States. This was further evident over the weekend at the hugely popular Premier League Mornings Live Fan Fest in Florida.

Held on Saturday and Sunday at Universal CityWalk, Universal Orlando Resort's entertainment complex, Eddie Nketiah's 90th-minute winner for Arsenal encapsulated the drama and excitement of another epic title race.

The Orlando fan festival was the eighth supporter event to be presented by NBC Sports and the Premier League, and the second this season, following the Philadelphia Fan Fest in October.


Across the four television match windows last weekend, NBC Sports averaged a total audience delivery of 947,000 viewers - marking the largest average audience for a Premier League Mornings Live Fan Fest.
