NBC Sports and the Premier League are heading to Miami, Florida, for the next Premier League Mornings Live fan festival, 14th-15th December.

The two-day fan festival will take place at Miami’s historic Clevelander South Beach Hotel and features live action from nine Premier League fixtures across five match windows, including one match on NBC (Southampton v. West Ham, Saturday at 12:30 p.m. ET) and culminating in Arsenal v. Manchester City on Sunday at 11:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and Telemundo.

The Premier League Trophy, club mascots and special guests will be in attendance at the event, which soccer fans can attend for free by signing up here.

NBC Sports’ studio team of host Rebecca Lowe and analysts Robbie Earle, Kyle Martino and Robbie Mustoe will broadcast Premier League Mornings Live, presented by Barclays, from the event on NBCSN beginning at 7 a.m. ET on Saturday, December 14 and Sunday, December 15. 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.

In addition, Miami-based Telemundo Deportes – the exclusive Spanish language home of the Premier League in the U.S. – will have its biggest-ever fan festival presence with special production on location, including pre-game coverage featuring on-air experts Andres Cantor, Manuel Sol, Miguel Gurwitz and Copan Alvarez alongside Ana Jurka, co-host of Telemundo Deportes’ news and entertainment nightly show, Titulares y Más.

The Miami fan festival is the second of three Premier League Mornings Live supporter events that NBC Sports and the Premier League have presented this season, following October’s event in Austin, Texas.

This follows three spirited fan festivals (New York, Washington D.C. and Boston.) during the 2018-19 Premier League season. More than 25,000 soccer fans in the U.S. have attended Premier League Mornings Live events so far.

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: “We are excited to take Premier League Mornings Live to Miami, a city with a passionate sports following, after a successful first event of 2019/20 in Austin. It has been great to bring the Premier League experience to more fans across the United States and we look forward to seeing new supporters in Florida. NBC Sports will once again be helping us deliver an action-packed weekend, direct from South Beach, with many of our clubs joining us for free, family-friendly activities in a unique location.”

NBC Sports Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Content Strategy Jenny Storms added: “Coming off another successful Fan Fest in Austin, Texas, we are looking forward to kicking off the holiday season with our next event in South Florida. Miami fans, we look forward to celebrating Premier League soccer with you soon!”

The weekend’s Premier League coverage will kick off from Miami on Saturday, December 14 with Premier League Live at 7 a.m. ET on NBCSN, followed by the Liverpool v. Watford match at 7:30 a.m.

Sunday’s coverage begins with a two-hour Premier League Mornings Live at 7 a.m. ET on NBCSN, followed by Wolverhampton Wanderers travelling to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to take on the Spurs at 9 a.m. ET, followed by Arsenal v. Manchester City at 11:30 a.m., called by Arlo White and Lee Dixon.

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.
