US University students in Liverpool, UK, can now watch the NFL action live!

THE American Football season gets underway in the states this week and Liverpool John Moores American Football Society (LJMU Fury) have teamed up with O'Neill's Liverpool on Hanover Street to bring you all of the NFL action on the big screens.

The LJMU Fury, one of the largest sports societies at John Moores University, will be spending their Sundays at the newly refurbished Hanover Street venue to watch all the action of the Gridiron, when the season kicked off on the 8 September 2017. The popularity of the sport continues to grow in the UK and both Wembley stadium and Twickenham, the home of English Rugby, will be hosting 2 regular season games this year.

LJMU Fury Club President Bob Evans said:- "The interest in the game has grown massively with the introduction of the London games over the last couple of years. We have seen player numbers increase from around 30 to over 80 a year in the last couple of seasons, as the students start to see how exciting the game be. This year the opportunity to continue showcasing American Football within 1 of the busiest venues in Liverpool, was an excellent opportunity for the Club, and the venue is an excellent place to catch the games on the big screens."

The team will start its preparations for the new season towards the end of September 2017, and hope that the popularity of the sport will help encourage students new to the sport to give it a try.  Any LJMU students interested in the sport can contact the club via:- Facebook or via email.

"The whole team at O'Neill's are delighted to be able to work with the LJMU Fury team this season, and are all excited to get the season underway. The team members have all picked their own NFL teams to support this season and will be getting involved with dressing up and plenty of banter to support their team heading towards the Superbowl in February."
added David Cunningham, Team Leader and brains behind the partnership with LJMU Fury.

Since the refurbishment in May, the venue now boasts 5 32", 3 48", 2 58" screens an 80" HD screen and 3 booths with their own private televisions. Their great new food menu is served until 10pm and features great deals on pizzas/burger with drinks as well as steaks, sandwiches and pub favourites. O'Neill's will be showing the NFL fixtures every Sunday from 6pm, as well as Red Zone (The NFL news programme).
