'Incredible loyalty'

"It's great to see how much interest in the Premier League has grown in the US, and I know that there are incredibly loyal and enthusiastic football fans across the country," Shearer said.

"I have no doubt that 'Premier League Mornings Live' will give fans another way to share their passion together and I am looking forward to meeting local supporters in Washington DC and watching the day’s games together."

The event is the first in a series of full-day Premier League fan engagements this season in the US which will bring "Premier League Mornings" to life, creating an experience to share with some of the most dedicated and loyal supporters in the world.
