Designated pubs to showcase 'Championship Sunday'

[SOCCER ON THE AIR] To enhance the viewing of “Championship Sunday,” with live coverage of all 10 Premier League matches on the final day of the season, NBCSN has designated 70 pubs in nine U.S. cities as official viewing spots.

Pubs in New York City, Washington, D.C., Seattle, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Miami have been selected for the showcase by which 10 NBCUniversal channels will each carry a game live. Pregame and postgame shows will supplement the match telecasts, which start simultaneously at 7 a.m. ET.

The final day of play will determine whether league leader Manchester City or Liverpool claims the title, as well as places for European club competitions and the three teams to be relegated. Manchester City leads Liverpool by two points.

In addition to viewing the games en masse, fans can scoop up schwag and compete for major prizes to be raffled off by NBCSN representatives. Freebies include T-shirts, coasters, bottle openers and stickers. Games will be shown in English on NBC, NBCSN, CNBC, MSNBC, USA, Bravo, E!, Oxygen, Esquire Network and Syfy. Spanish-language networks Telemundo and mun2 will each show one game.

“We started the season in soccer bars greeting the fans with the chant – every week, every game, on TV and streaming live,” said John Miller, chief marketing officer of NBC Sports Group. “They liked what they heard so we decided to end the season back in the bars to thank our loyal fans for a great season.”

NBCSN has generated an 80 percent increase in ratings from last season, translating to an average audience of 395,000 viewers as compared to the 220,000 viewers Premier League games averaged last season. Nine of the 10 most-watched Premier League games ever on cable have been recorded during the 2013-14 campaign that concludes Sunday.
