World Football Update


By JF - May 23rd, 2017

Feature Matches

Manchester United and Ajax meet in the Europa League Final on Wednesday evening!  The match is in Stockholm Sweden, and will be aired at 12:45pm (MST) here in Denver.  The Red Devils have thrown all their eggs in one basket, and the reputation of the incorrigible Mourinho rests on their gamble to win this match and make next year's Champions League Group Stage!  Ajax, known for producing many of Europe's greatest players, will present a stiff challenge for United.  This match could go either way, and should provide for a very entertaining afternoon at the Pub!

We have a big Saturday lined up in the World of Football, with the FA Cup Final, a Cascadia Cup Derby, the Copa del Rey Final, and a Colorado Rapids home match!  Chelsea and Arsenal clash in what is sure to be an epic FA Cup Final on Saturday morning!  Chelsea have been dominant throughout the Prem season, and are sure to be favorites here.  Arsenal can nab some silverware, and provide some solace to a fanbase that will miss Champions League Football for the first time in twenty years.  The match kicks off at 10:30am, and no matter who you support the house will be rocking for this one!  Following the FA Cup Final we have a Cascadia Cup clash between Seattle and Portland!  This is by far the best domestic derby we have, with a history stretching back over forty years!  A bit later in the day Barcelona meet Alaves in the Copa del Rey Final, the only chance at silverware this year for the Blaugrana.  

The Colorado Rapids are at home on Saturday night, when they face Sporting K.C. at Dick's Sporting Goods Park!  As always, shuttle service will be provided from the Pubs by the Rapid's Supporters Groups!

Last but not least, this will be the last Football Update after eight years.  I hope in some way this helped tune Denver's soccer fans into what was happening each week in the world of football.  Moving forward the schedule will still be available on this link each and every week.  

Forget signing out, Cheers!

On the Horizon

Next week the 2016/17 Champions League Final between Juventus and Real Madrid is Saturday afternoon!  The USMNT play Venezuela Saturday in a tune up for the upcoming World Cup Qualifiers!  The Colorado Rapids are at home on Saturday night when they face the Columbus Crew.
