Prior to the pandemic, NBC staged several EPL fan festival events across the United States featuring the live Premier League Mornings show. During to the pandemic, the successful event could not happen last season. However, NBC is bringing the Premier League Fan Fest back.
On the weekend of Oct. 23/24, NBC Sports will broadcast their Premier League Mornings show live from Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The trip out to California represents the first time the live morning show makes it way out west. Previously, NBC hosted EPL fan festivals in the likes of Boston, Miami, Washington DC, New York City and Austin.
EPL Fan Festival in Los Angeles
This year, the usual NBC Premier League coverage team will make the trek out to Los Angeles from Bristol, CT.
Rebecca Lowe hosts the coverage, with Robbie Earle, Robbie Mustoe and Tim Howard joining behind the desk. Several guests will join the team throughout the weekend’s coverage. For example, former Watford FC captain and USMNT player Jay DeMerit will join in the celebrations.
NBC encourages fans to attend the EPL fan fest. There, they will have the chance to see NBC’s production of Premier League Mornings and the other programs. Also, fans will be in the background of the broadcast.

However, there is one caveat to this event that differs from those that preceded it. Attendees will have to present proof of vaccination against COVID-19. Additionally, the event will be entirely outside to mitigate any possible spread.
To attend the event for free, you’ll need to register ahead of time.
The pandemic forced the last EPL fan festival, set for Philadelphia in April 2020, to be postponed. NBC is still aiming to host an event in Philadelphia, just at a later date.
