From Friday to Sunday there will be live studio shows at Scholz Garten in Austin as Rebecca Lowe, Kyle Martino, Robbie Earle and Robbie Mustoe will be joined by several star guests throughout the weekend.
Following on from previous events in Washington D.C., New York City and Boston (see the video above for a recap), this is the first Fan Fest to not be held on the East Coast.
Below are details of what you can expect over the next few days.
The event will feature the Premier League trophy, club mascots, a mechanical bull, airbrush tattoos, pancake artists, special giveaways, and more. Special guests this weekend will include: Alan Shearer, the Premier League’s all-time top scorer, former Chelsea and England defender Ashley Cole, who won eight major trophies with Chelsea; former Manchester City winger Shaun Wright-Phillips, and Howard.
Following his attendance at the Premier League Mornings Live event in Boston earlier this year, WWE’s Sheamus will also make his return, supporting Liverpool when they take on Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, Oct. 27.
In addition, NBC Sports live coverage will feature special messages from current and former professional athletes and personalities, including JJ Watt, Matthew McConaughey, Chris Simms (former University of Texas QB), and Megan Rapinoe. New England Patriots receiver Julian Edelman also displays his soccer skills in a special video at Gillette Stadium.
For fans who can’t make it to Austin, NBC Sports will present “live look-ins” from Premier League viewing parties across the country, including Atlanta, Miami, and Los Angeles.
