Boxing Day is one of the favorite days of the season for the fans of the English Premier League. And this year will be special for two reasons. First, it features the first Premier League games after the World Cup break. Second, the entire NBC Sports studio crew will be in England. They’ll be calling games, and reporting from pitch-side desks.
The tradition of Boxing Day, the day after Christmas Day, is uniquely British. The national holiday is a time for families to spend more time together. And if you’re a soccer fan, it always means a choice of many games to choose from that are played throughout the British football pyramid.
For Boxing Day 2022, NBC Sports have plenty of festive fixtures planned for soccer fans throughout the United States of America.
