Hosted by Mike Tirico at 12 p.m. ET every weekday, current and former athletes as well as NBC Sports’ commentators and other prominent figures will be guests to discuss the sports world during the coronavirus pandemic and analyze the ever-changing landscape as sports have been put on hold for the foreseeable future.

The guest list for the debut show this Monday is as follows:

  • 12:00 p.m. ET: Justin Leonard and Peter King
  • 12:15 p.m. ET: Cris Collinsworth and Dale Earnhardt Jr

It aims to give guests a “platform to discuss the state of sports, voice their personal stories and detail how they are adapting their daily lives during this challenging time.”

“In these challenging times, we are all missing sports and the people who make sports memories,” Tirico said. “Hopefully, we can bring a midday connection with some of them to help fill the void.”

Everything is bigger in Texas. And this will be no different.

This time it takes place at Scholz Garten in downtown Austin. The two-day celebration of Premier League fandom will take place on Saturday Oct. 26 and Sunday Oct. 27. The Scholz Garten venue is inclusive of a full street closure, courtyard space, and indoor bar.

All sections of the venue will be packed with fun activities and of course plenty of viewing areas for fans to watch all of the action.

The event will feature the NBC Sports studio broadcast live onsite with special appearances throughout the day. We’ll also have free merchandise and giveaways throughout the day, plus food, drink and plenty more.

Premier League Interim Chief Executive, Richard Masters, said: “After a successful season of Premier League Mornings Live, we are delighted to be visiting Austin, Texas, for the first event of 2019-20. Last year we saw how passionate our American fans are, as we brought the Premier League experience to Washington D.C., New York and Boston.

”This season we are once again working with NBC Sports and bringing many of our clubs, partners and some famous faces to unique locations in different cities. Those attending in Austin can expect some great activations and I am sure there will be plenty of entertaining football for them to enjoy as we have some exciting fixtures taking place over the weekend.”
