Somewhere to watch English football match - 11th May 14

Hi everyone,

We'll be in Palm Springs on the last day of the English Premier League football (soccer) and are looking for somewhere that will be showing the Liverpool game. Fingers crossed, it looks as though Liverpool might win the league so it would be great if we can find some place to watch the match.

The game is on 3pm UK time, so it will be an early start, 7am I think (!)

Do you know of anywhere open at this time that will be showing the match?

Thanks,

Cath

If it is broadcast live ...you won't find it in a bar.

Your best bet will be at one of the casinos ....pretty sure that they will show some English football.

The Beer Hunter, in La Quinta is a great sports bar but I doubt they are open at that hour. Will they show it on tape delay in the States like they they do for other sports?

My sons watch soccer games that have been played earlier. They just don't listen to the news or read the sports section of the newspaper that morning until they view the game later in the day.

The NBC Sports owns the rights to EPL, and will show all of the matches on its series of channels, including places like CNBC, etc. on May 11th.

Since all the games start at 7 AM PDT on the last day, one will be on the main NBC Channel (KMIR - Channel 6), and then the other games will be on the NBC owned Cable Channels.

…nbcsports.com/2014/…

You should find a few of them on your Hotel's TV, and some bars might open early, but you would have to call around. The channel assignments will be based on how "important" the match is, so those that have a chance to win the title will get the better channels.

Searching the web, it looks like there's The Hair of the Dog English Pub, and their site says they open at 7am, I'd check with them. I'm in the Bay Area, and it's pretty easy to find a place that'd be open for EPL in the early morning hours. Back when I was younger, I'd go watch the big matches (say ManU/Liverpool) before the sun came up, and it would usually be pretty crowded.

Sounds like The Hair of the Dog sounds like a great match for the OP, they might even open up a bit early, should be a good fun time early in the AM.

Hi everyone,

Thank you all so much for your replies and help.

I'm actually in Paso Robles on the 11th not Palm Springs (got my dates mixed up!) so hopefully we'll catch the match on a NBC channel in the hotel.

Again, thanks for all your help!

The main NBC Channel in the Paso Robles area is KSEE Channel 24 based out of Fresno.

The Liverpool - Chelsea match was on NBC last Saturday, interesting match, sorry that Liverpool lost, but looks like May 11th will be a fun day to watch the EPL.

Good luck.
