Philadelphia Union CEO Nick Sakiewicz says their TV ratings are five years ahead of schedule.

Around 60,000 households that tuned into games on television - which, according to Sakiewicz, was a 100 percent increase from a year ago.

"I thought that where we finished this year in local TV ratings would take five years to get to that," Sakiewicz told "Here we are in year two and our ratings are on par with other teams that have been in the market a long time."
