Registration opens for Premier League Mornings Live Fan Fest in Nashville

Yet to be introduced over here in the United Kingdom, Registration for US-based fans to attend the Premier League Mornings Live Fan Fest in Nashville has now opened.

The event takes place over two days, with tickets available for Saturday, April 6 and Sunday, April 7 – the latter of which will take place during Manchester United vs Liverpool, one of the most highly-anticipated fixtures across the globe every year.

The Nashville Premier League Mornings Live event

As with all Premier League Mornings Live events to date, tickets are free and fans can register via the Premier League's official website.

The Nashville instalment of the event is the ninth edition of the festival, with over 70,000 fans attending the previous eight. It is an event which aims to recreate a matchday-like experience for all those in attendance, something which is incredibly hard for any fan based in America to experience live in the flesh.

A statement released by NBC Sports explained that the festival will “feature the Premier League trophy, club mascots and many family-friendly, interactive activities to bring the Premier League experience closer to fans.”

Highlighting the difference between the UK and the US

Such a festival is yet to be introduced here in the UK, but that may potentially be due to a difference in culture surrounding football in both regions.

Firstly, the biggest difference is, of course, the fact that UK-based Premier League fans have far more opportunities to attend matches than those based in America, meaning there is less demand for an event of this nature.

Secondly, violence in football is a far greater problem in the UK than it is in the US, and as a result, hosting an event which places thousands of fans, many of whom will support rival teams, into one area may not be the best idea in the UK.
