The Nashville fan festival is the ninth Premier League Mornings Live supporter event to be presented by NBC Sports and the Premier League. Previous fan festivals were held in Washington D.C., New York, Boston, Austin, Miami Beach, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Orlando. Nearly 70,000 soccer fans in the U.S. have attended Premier League Mornings Live events to date, all of which aim to recreate a matchday experience for attending supporters, while demonstrating the energy and passion for the Premier League and its clubs to the millions of fans watching the broadcast from home.
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. This also follows the opening of the Premier League’s new international office in New York in July, with the aim of delivering more opportunities for U.S. fans to engage with the League.
Premier League U.S. Managing Director Akash Jain said: “We are thrilled to announce Nashville, the Music City, as the next destination for Premier League Mornings Live with NBC Sports. This Fan Fest builds on our successful pre-season Summer Series tournament this past July, where we and six of our clubs got to meet thousands of Premier League fans in the U.S. who joined us for really competitive matches across five different cities. We look forward to continuing our series of events in partnership with NBC Sports with this activity in Nashville, bringing the next Premier League Mornings Live event experience direct to our passionate supporters. It will be a great opportunity to engage with dedicated soccer fans who get up early every weekend to cheer on their team, in a city renowned for brilliant entertainment.”
“We’re thrilled once again to partner with the Premier League to bring our Premier League Mornings Live Fan Fest to Nashville for what will be an unforgettable weekend,” said Lyndsay Signor, SVP, Consumer Engagement, NBC Sports. “Premier League supporters have always brought incredible passion to our Fan Fests and we expect that to be fully amplified by the energy and excitement that Nashville’s Broadway is known for.”
Soccer fans from across the country can interact with the event by sharing their #MyPLMorning on social media, from wherever they are watching. Select viewer photos will be featured on air throughout the weekend. In addition to the broadcast, NBC and the Premier League will deliver on the ground coverage across the NBC Sports and NBC Soccer social channels, and the Premier League’s ‘PLinUSA’ channels.
Soccer fans are encouraged to create an account with the Premier League on premierleague.com for registration information, and to follow NBC and the Premier League channels throughout the exciting Festive Fixtures period.
