The tournament follows on from the success of the eight Premier League Mornings Live fan festival events the Premier League and broadcast partner NBC Sports have hosted in multiple US cities since 2018.

These events have seen more than 60,000 fans attend live match screenings in iconic locations, coming together to share their passion for the competition.

Last week the Premier League announced the official opening of an international office in Manhattan which has been set up to support the continued growth of the Premier League and its clubs in the US.

The new office will build on the opportunities created through the League’s highly successful and long-term broadcast partnership with NBC Sports, who became the home of Premier League coverage in the US in 2013, while also seeking to deliver more opportunities for both new and existing fans to engage with the League.
