MIAMI, March 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- beIN SPORTS announced today the success of its coverage from this past weekend's broadcast of El Clasico, played between Real Madrid and Barcelona.  As continued testament to soccer's growing popularity in the United States, the network's exclusive rights delivered huge engagement on Twitter, a key metric for not only the size of the television viewing audience, but also its passionate fan base.
