More people tune into the World Cup Final than the, simply because soccer is a worldwide sport. However, FIFA's claim that more than 1 billion people tune into the World Cup final is exaggerated.
According to a 2007 article in the UK newspaper The Independent, "Fifa's overblown figures, the World Cup finals of 1998, 2002 and 2006 respectively attracted global audiences of 1.3 billion, 1.1 billion and 715.1 million people... According to Initiative Sports Futures, independent analysts with no ties to Fifa, the figure for the 2006 [World Cup] final was 260 million in the 54 key markets it surveyed, accounting for 90 per cent of the world's TV households." (See Related links for full article.)
Even so, at 260 million, the World Cup final had more viewers than the 2006 Super Bowl.

The 2008 Super Bowl telecast was the most watched Super Bowl of all time, with an average of 97.5 million viewers in the United States and 148.3 million total viewers watched some part of the game. The broadcast achieved its highest Nielsen ratings (43.3) for the game since Super Bowl XXXIV. It was also the second most-watched TV program of all time in the United States.
According the the New York Times, 16.9 million American viewers (11.9 million on ABC and 5 million on Univision) saw the 2006 World Cup final between France and Italy. For the 2006 Super Bowl between Pittsburgh and Seattle (Super Bowl XL), 91 million were watching. The 16.9 million was the second highest total viewers for a World Cup final in the US, exceeded only by the 17.9 million that watched the US women defeat China in the Women's World Cup final in 1999.
Well, the World Cup is an international event spanning over many days with MANY different countries viewing it worldwide. The Super Bowl is just a national American event with a mainly American audience. But, the World Cup isn't as popular as the Super Bowl here in the U.S. Hope this answered your question!
