Feature Matches

Champions League Semifinals kick off our game week, with first leg action set for Tuesday and Wednesday! This afternoon it's Manchester City facing off against Real Madrid! City will need a strong result, with the prospect of playing in the Santiago Bernabeau in a weeks time. Tomorrow it's Atletico Madrid hosting Bayern Munchen, with Madrid playing the underdog role to the Germans.

Thursday the Europa League Semifinals feature, with both matches kicking off at 1pm! Villareal host Liverpool, and Shakhtar Donetsk battle Sevilla! The winner of the Europa League competition will earn a berth in next year's Champions League, which provides all the motivation necessary for some great football here!

The EPL is heating up to a fever pitch as the relegation battle, the fight for a spot in Europe next season, and the title race all rage on! In the relegation fight we have Newcastle battling Crystal Palace, and Sunderland travelling to Stoke, Saturday at 8am! A bit later Norwich will be at the Emirates to face Arsenal. The Canaries are desperate for points to stay up, while the Gunners need to continue their fight for European football next year! Sunday morning we feature the EPL match of the week, with Leicester City making the trip to Manchester United, with the title on the line! A win for the Foxes, and they defy all the odds to become perhaps the greatest underdog story in sports history! A draw or a loss, and the race continues. Depending on Sunday's result, Tottenham may have a lot to play for on Monday afternoon, when they travel across town to battle Chelsea!

The Colorado Rapids are off to a blistering start in 2016, sitting second in the table, with five wins! They are coming off of three straight victories, and are undefeated at home eight matches into the season! This week they travel to Montreal to face the number two side in the Eastern Conference! The match kicks off at 2pm on Saturday, and the Pub will be hosting an Away Game Viewing Party! We encourage everyone to get out in support of our hometown Club, and wear your colors to the Pub to enjoy the match with other like minded fans!

On the Horizon

Next week the second leg of the Champions League and Europa League Semifinals feature! On the weekend the relegation battle continues in the EPL, as well as the fight for the top four! The Colorado Rapids are at home Saturday night against Rocky Mountain rivals Salt Lake in a RMC Derby!
