NBC Sports and Premier League heading to Austin for next fan festival

NBC Sports and the Premier League celebrate the 2019-20 season by heading southwest for the first time with the next Premier League Mornings Live fan festival in Austin, Texas on October 26-27, 2019. The two-day fan festival will take over Scholz Garten, the oldest beer garden in America, and features live action from nine games across five match windows, including two matches on NBC.

Premier League clubs are joining the action at the event, which will feature special guests, club mascots, soccer-themed fan events, contests and more. Fans interested in attending can sign up here.

NBC Sports’ Premier League Mornings studio team of host Rebecca Lowe and analysts Robbie Earle, Kyle Martino and Robbie Mustoe will broadcast live from the event on NBCSN beginning at 7 a.m. ET on Saturday, October 26, and 8 a.m. ET on Sunday, October 27. The group will be joined by several special guests throughout the day and will bring the celebration to viewers across the country.

With widespread fan excitement across the nation, NBC Sports will take cameras to additional cities around the country to showcase “live look-ins” of passionate Premier League viewing parties to join the celebration.

The Austin fan festival marks the first Premier League Mornings Live supporter event that NBC Sports and the Premier League will present this season, following three successful installments (Boston, New York, and Washington D.C.) during the 2018-19 Premier League season. This year’s Austin event features a two-day format, which debuted last spring with the spirited fan festival in Boston, where more than 12,000 supporters celebrated at Cask n’ Flagon and outside of Fenway Park. NBC Sports introduced its innovative fan festival activation in Manhattan in November 2017.

The Premier League has an ongoing commitment to bringing unique experiences to its fans and working with NBC Sports on Premier League Mornings Live continues that direct outreach to passionate fans in different cities across the United States.

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.”

NBC Sports Chief Marketing Officer Jenny Storms added: “We are excited to once again partner with the Premier League on this two-day event. With a new city and time zone in Austin, we look forward to celebrating the sport with that passionate local fan base and showcasing the Texas culture across the country.”
