More than 14,000 U.S. fans joined the Premier League and NBC Sports at the Premier League Mornings Live Fan Festival, which took place on 15th & 16th October at Dilworth Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Before the two-day fan festival officially kicked off, Premier League mascots who made the trip across the pond were shown around the city by Philly sports mascots, while some PL legends laced up for a field-goal competition with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Once Saturday morning arrived, thousands of fans stood in a line that wrapped around Philadelphia City Hall, as early as the night before the two-day event, so they could watch Premier League action broadcast live.

They were also able to get their photos taken with the Premier League Trophy, meet mascots and former players and cheer for their club with other supporters.

Special guests

Premier League Hall of Fame Inductees Alan Shearer and Ian Wright, as well as notable former players Carlton Cole, Ben Foster, Jason McAteer and Graham Stuart joined the NBC Sports' studio team consisting of Rebecca Lowe, Robbie Earle, Robbie Mustoe and Tim Howard as special guests.

WWE wrestler and Liverpool fan Sheamus and actor Matthew Lewis, a Leeds United supporter, who played Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter film series, were also in attendance.

Some even got to take part in a Ben Foster vlog, as the former Watford goalkeeper spent time hanging with fans of all eight teams playing during the loaded match window.

“How cool is that? Everyone’s supporting different teams. No drama, no trouble, no stress. Everyone’s just looking forward to having a nice time,” Foster said.

At the end of the highly anticipated weekend, we put our hands up for the incredible fans who soaked in every moment of the action.
