World Football Update
Feature Matches
 
English Premier League Football headlines mid week, with eighteen teams in action this afternoon!  Our feature match of the day has David Moyes' Manchester United hosting his former club Everton at Old Trafford.  Moyes managed the Toffees for eleven seasons before moving on to United, but now he finds himself trailing his former club in the table.  Everton's new Manager Roberto Martinez has his side flying high, and playing a very attractive style of football.  The storyline here, and the contrasting styles, should make for a very interesting matchup.
 
Thursday night at the Lions you can support a great cause, as we host the annual "Guys Night Out" benefit that raises money for the Denver Rescue Mission.  For more details please see below.
 
Friday morning we open early to cover the World Cup Draw for Brazil 2014.  There will be plenty of pomp and circumstance, and we will all find out who our beloved National Teams will face in the tournament.  Doors will open at 9am, with coverage starting at 9:30am.  Breakfast and cocktails will be served.
 
We will have all the EPL action, and a bit of FA Cup early on both Saturday and Sunday.  The big story of the weekend though, is the 2013 MLS Cup Final!  The final match of the season has Sporting K.C. taking on our Rocky Mountain rivals Salt Lake.  Needless to say you know who we will be pulling for in this one!  The Pub is hosting an MLS Cup Final Party, with the match kicking off at 2pm.  We will have some early specials, before Happy Hour kicks in at 3pm!
 
On the Horizon
 
Next week the final day of the Champions League Group stages takes place on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Manchester City take on Arsenal Saturday morning, and Tottenham face Liverpool Sunday.
