Leave a comment

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

NBC Sports and the Premier League have announced details for the first Premier League Mornings Live Fan Fest event of the season, and we are heading to Austin, Texas in October.

Just like the events in Washington D.C., New York City and Boston last season, fans will be able to watch all of the PL action together with the live studio show taking place in front of them.

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.”

Crossroads: What if lasagna-gate hadn’t rocked Spurs

1 Comment

As the 2005-2006 season was coming to a close, Tottenham was on the precipice of a great feat. Finishing above Arsenal as well as qualifying for the UEFA Champions League.

Then came the Lasagna.

[ VIDEO: Premier League highlights ]

The night before the match, almost a dozen Spurs players ended up with food poisoning from a bad batch of Lasagna at a hotel buffet. It clearly affected the team the next day, as West Ham defeated Tottenham, 2-1. To make matters worse for Spurs, Arsenal jumped over them in the table in Thierry Henry’s last match before moving to Barcelona.

But what if that never happened? What if Tottenham had a perfectly fine dinner, defeated West Ham, and qualified for the Champions League?

Arlo White, Lee Dixon and Graeme Le Saux are going on another Excellent Adventure.

[ STREAM: Every PL match live

NBC Sports’ Premier League crew in the UK will be attending two games on opposite sides of London Saturday, as they’ll call West Ham v. Arsenal (Watch live, 7:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com) in a big London derby and then Chelsea v. Newcastle United (Watch live, 12:30 p.m. ET on NBC and online via NBCSports.com) at Stamford Bridge.

For Part 3 of the adventure, the guys will be traveling on motorbikes and stopping to take pictures at Tower Bridge, Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey along the way.

“Announcing two Premier League games on the same day is really great fun, and now we have the added twist of calling a third game the following day, all in the same city!” lead soccer announcer Arlo White said. “We’ve given up trying to race between stadiums as Lee is far too competitive, but we’ll climb on the motorbike taxis after calling West Ham v/ Arsenal and head west across town to Stamford Bridge, and call Chelsea v. Newcastle. We’ll be armed with GoPro cameras so I’m sure we’ll see some famous sights and landmarks along the way!”

They will also be staying in London on Sunday to call the massive clash at Wembley, as Tottenham host Manchester United (Watch live, 11:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com).

“After a night to recover, we’ll head to Wembley on Sunday for a massive game between title chasing Tottenham and a rejuvenated Manchester United.  As usual, the games themselves will come first, but it’s the perfect weekend for the three of us and we can’t wait to get started.”

Stay tuned across our social platforms, including NBC Sport Soccer’s Twitter account, to catch up with the Excellent Adventure 3.
