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 Cristy, a Manchester United fan whose passion for the game results in beautiful works of art.

"From a young age, I was always drawing or picking up crayons and things like that. It’s been a passion of mine since I was a child. And I love soccer. I think it’s the greatest sport in the world. Those are definitely my two passions.

"Hincha FC is the small [design] brand that I’ve started. It’s my way of sharing my passion for the game and also connecting with other fans that love the sport as much as I do. I’m hoping to grow that further and have my artwork take off.

"Wayne Rooney is definitely one of my favorite players. When I saw [his] bicycle kick [against Man City] I got chills. You can watch it over and over again and you can’t get tired of it. I was like, 'I need to put my own spin this goal. I want to try to bring it to life.'

"When I’m working, I’m thinking about the specific moment and I’m really trying to capture their emotions. That’s really important to me, and I’m hoping it comes across in the piece that I’m working on."

“I’m creating a piece for the fan fest that’s going to be here in Miami. Of course, it’s highlighting Manchester United. I’m going to incorporate a couple of players from Man Utd and then a couple of players from Everton and highlight the clash that’s going to take place on Sunday. I’m super-excited!"
