Where Do Premier League Footballers Go On Summer Holiday?

wes brown las vegas partying Where Do Premier League Footballers Go On Summer Holiday?

Throughout the years, American soccer fans have had to endure the snide remarks and abuse from the English football press and public towards America. We’ve all heard the cheap jokes at the expense of our “Mickey Mouse” league, the tiresome jibes about the term soccer and how Americans mispronounce it. As well as the jabs that the English press and football fans aim at the U.S. men’s national team and how “inferior” they are to European opposition.

Yet despite many Englishmen criticizing America, droves of them visit the States each year and then return to a country, England, that becomes more like the United States each year, consuming large quantities of American television, movies, fashion, music, food, expressions and lifestyle.

And it’s not just the English media or football supporters who land on American shores each year. Plenty of Premier League footballers, managers and executives make the trek each year for their rest and relaxation.

For example, here are just a few highlights:

And these are just the footballers we know about. I can guarantee that there are countless others roaming the streets of New York, Miami, Las Vegas and Los Angeles without us even knowing it.

In previous years, Thierry Henry – when he played for Arsenal – frequently visited Miami and New York on vacation. And former Arsenal vice-chairman David Dein has also visited Miami.

Sadly, for many of us in the United States, myself included, the closest we’ll get to seeing a Premier League footballer up-close on our home turf is when they’re partying and relaxing on vacation in this country.

  1. It’s called a holiday, what has it got to do with football. David Beckham has said that American football (soccer) isn’t as good as he thought it was.

  2. Soccer….What does this word mean?
    I thought this was a football (foot to ball, ball to foot, foot to ball, ball to foot, foot to ball or head, ball to goal) site.

  3. Soccer is a colloquial abbreviation of association football. It is also the common name for the sport in North America, South Africa, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and Zimbabwe. It is an English term used to differentiate the sport from Rugby, which is also a form of football.

  4. A lot of the European stars are major NBA fans. It’s a common thing for them to come here and watch the playoffs.

  5. Gaffer:

    I told you you could not use my picture without permission. Now my wife knows what I have been up to! (lol)

  6. “and then return to a country, England, that becomes more like the United States each year, consuming large quantities of American television, movies, fashion, music, food, expressions and lifestyle”

    …please!
