Ahead of Premier League Mornings Live's visit to Florida this weekend, a Miami lawyer explains how he shows his love for Arsenal in the office

Premier League Mornings Live, the fan fest hosted by the Premier League and NBC Sports, comes this weekend to Miami, a city of people passionate about the Premier League.

The Premier League's US Instagram account, @PLinUSA, is sharing the stories of some of those fans and their love of soccer and the league.

Meet Giovanni, an international lawyer who never fails to let his office know who he supports.

"I'm a commercial litigator," Giovanni says. "Mostly that involves two big companies suing each other for a lot of money.

"I try to represent [my love for] Arsenal when I can at the office. It’s the little things [like] I’ll slap on my Arsenal cufflinks.

"When I started going to the pub for midweek matches, I had to pick between the first half and the second half to go for my lunch break. I would wear my Miami Arsenal t-shirt below my dress shirt. Just to kind of show, 'Look, I’m all dressed up, but I’ve got my Arsenal underneath.'

"There is a small subculture of white-collar professionals that go out to the pub to watch a midweek Premier League fixture.

"You kind of find out, 'Oh, that’s an accountant' or, 'That’s another lawyer at a different firm.'

"And you can make some connections that way with people trying to get away to watch their favorite club."
