To celebrate Thanksgiving in the United States this Thursday, the Premier League displayed its gratitude for the support of fans across the nation by giving them some tasty traditional gifts.

As a way of thanking those who spend the early hours of their weekend mornings cheering on their favourite PL clubs, the Premier League's US social account @PLinUSA surprised 1,000 fans with two Thanksgiving treats: an American pumpkin pie to eat on the holiday, and a traditional English savoury pie to enjoy while watching the Premier League matches on NBC Sports this weekend.

First off, NBC Sports' Premier League anchor Rebecca Lowe gave fans a taste of what was in store.

The fans of each of the 20 clubs were nominated by supporters groups across the country or selected in random giveaways.

And the pies were dispatched to land on doorsteps of homes from the East and the West Coasts.

From Annie, who lives in Miami and supports Tottenham Hotspur, to the Aston Villa Supporters Club based in California.

And the fans were happy to share their surprise and delight as the pies arrived throughout the week.

Other Stateside fans took the opportunity to show off their tasty treats too.
