The Premier League and NBC Sports are taking the Premier League Mornings Live fan festival to Philadelphia for the first time, on 15-16 October.

The two-day fan festival will take place at Dilworth Park, located outside of Philadelphia's City Hall in Center City, and features live action from nine Premier League fixtures presented across NBC, Peacock, USA Network, Telemundo and Universo.

The weekend's event will conclude with a mouthwatering meeting between the Premier League's past two title-winning clubs as Liverpool host Manchester City at Anfield.

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 on USA Network and Peacock beginning on each day at 07:00 ET.

Special guests

The group will be joined by several special guests, who will help bring the celebration to viewers across the country. Telemundo Deportes' Ana Jurka will provide on-location reports from the Fan Fest into weekend coverage on Telemundo and Universo.

The event will also feature the Premier League Trophy, club mascots and family activities.

The Premier League's No Room for Racism activity will be highlighted over the weekend too, encouraging fans to take a stand against racism and all forms of discrimination.

"The Premier League Mornings Live Fan Festivals have continued to be fantastic events for our dedicated supporters in the US, who rise early in the morning to watch their teams play," said Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters.

"We are extremely pleased to be kicking off this season's events with NBC in Philadelphia, as we continue in our aim to bring those in America the best matchday experience possible."

The Fan Fest kicks off NBC Sports' weekend of futbol and football in Philadelphia, which concludes in primetime on Sunday as the Eagles host the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football at 20:20 ET on NBC and Peacock.

It will be a weekend of big events in Philadelphia, which will serve as a host city for FIFA World Cup 2026.

The Philadelphia fan festival is the seventh Premier League Mornings Live supporter event to be presented by NBC Sports and the Premier League, and the first since October 2021 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Previous fan festivals were held in Washington DC, New York, Boston, Austin, and Miami.

Matchday experience

More than 40,000 soccer fans in the US have attended Premier League Mornings Live events, which create a matchday experience for fans on-site and display the energy and passion of the Premier League for the millions watching the broadcast at home.

The previously scheduled April 2020 Philadelphia fan fest was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Premier League has an ongoing commitment to bringing unique experiences to its fans and working with NBC Sports on Premier League Mornings Live continues that direct outreach to passionate fans in different cities across the United States.

"With a series of exciting events in cosmopolitan cities and iconic locations stretching from east (New York City) to west (Los Angeles Coliseum), Fenway Park to South Beach, and from our nation's capital to the Texas State Capital, we are thrilled to partner with the Premier League as we bring our unique Fan Fest to Center City in Philadelphia, as supporters in the U.S. once again come together to celebrate the game they love," said Chief Marketing Officer, Entertainment and Sports, NBCUniversal, Jenny Storms.
