    Can you clarify what you mean by "TRP rate?" That's not a phrase I'm familiar with. (Also, how are you using the word "indirectly"?)

According to article from Whatculture FIFA World Cup with average viewer 3.5 billion is the most watched sport broadcast in the world. But FIFA says 3.2 billion and estimated 280 million people around the world watched matches online or on a mobile device.

And the 2014 World Cup final between Germany and Argentina in Brazil was watched by more than 1 billion viewers which suggest it might be the highest TRP match.
