Play began on Saturday for the NWSL Challenge Cup in Utah, featuring eight teams vying for the inaugural trophy in the top women’s league in the world.

And the first day of soccer drew record setting numbers.

The #NWSL ratings for Portland vs. North Carolina on CBS: An 572,000 and, in the 18-49 demographic, 178,000.

That’s really good. For reference, MLS’s highest-rated regular season game last year had 462,000. NWSL has previously maxed out around ~200,000.
