The Premier League and NBC Sports are taking the Premier League Mornings Live fan festival to the West Coast of the United States for the first time, travelling to Los Angeles, California, on 23rd-24th October.

The two-day fan festival will take place at the historic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, home to two Olympic Games (1932 and 1984) and two Super Bowls (I and VII).

The weekend's event will feature live action from nine Premier League fixtures, concluding with Manchester United v Liverpool on Sunday, 24th October.

NBC Sports' studio team of host Rebecca Lowe and analysts Robbie Earle, Robbie Mustoe and Tim Howard will broadcast Premier League Mornings Live, presented by Barclays, from the event beginning each day at 04:00 ET on Saturday, 23rd October on Peacock and Sunday, 24th October on NBCSN.

The NBC team will be joined by special guests throughout the festival. Former Watford captain and US national men's team player Jay DeMerit and actor Brendan Hunt, who plays “Coach Beard” on Ted Lasso are among the famous faces attending the event.

In addition, Harry Potter star Matthew Lewis, a Leeds United supporter, will be in attendance to catch up with fans and get involved in some of the free activities.
