The United States’ Women’s World Cup win on Sunday broke a ratings record, garnering more viewers than any other soccer match in television history, according to broadcaster Fox Sports.

“It is the highest metered market rating ever for a soccer game in the U.S. on a single network,” Fox Sports wrote in an official announcement of the ratings triumph.

Data from Nielsen shows that game scored a 15.2 household rating for Fox, more than double the 6.1 rating for the U.S. semifinal win against Germany on June 30.
