World Football Update

By JF - April 25th, 2017

Feature Matches

There are some EPL matches to be made up in the mid week, with Chelsea v Southampton kicking things off this afternoon!  Wednesday  we have Arsenal v Leicester City, and Crystal Palace v Tottenham to look forward to.  On Thursday it's the Manchester Derby, with only a point separating the two sides in the EPL standings!  If United win, they will break into the top four.  City will hold third with a win or a draw.  Anyway you slice it, this will be an epic match!

Bayern Munchen and Borussia Dortmund meet in the German Cup Semifinals on Wednesday afternoon!  Yet another big match for rising American star Christian Pulisic.

The Colorado Rapids are in action on Saturday afternoon, when they face Eastern Conference leaders Orlando City!  We will be hosting an away game viewing party, kicking off at 2pm (MST)!

Sunday morning we have two great matches to look forward to.  Everton  face league leaders Chelsea in a huge match at 7am, followed by the North London Derby between Tottenham and Arsenal!  The Spurs have gotten the best of the Gunners this year in the league, but that doesn't mean Arsenal won't try and spoil the party by dashing their hopes at the EPL title.  Both matches will shape the outcome of the top of the table, and will provide some great football!

We are only two weeks out from our 3rd Annual Spring Footgolf Classic!  Follow the link below to sign up for a great event, that also supports our favorite charity America SCORES Denver!
