Hi Eddies!

I live in Toronto, but will be spending some of the next few weeks in your fine town. I will be there during the opening week of the EPL season, next weekend. is there a pub in town that will for sure show EPL matches on Saturday morning? I could not find any information about supporters groups for any of the big clubs, like there are in other Canadian cities. would love the banter with fellow football supporters, especially the thrill that comes on opening day. any info would be much appreciated! Thanks guys, cmon you eddies!!!!

The Elephant and Castle on Whyte Ave usually shows games.

Worth noting that out here in #yeg and Alberta, that couple of hours time difference means that EPL games are 8:00am starts rather than 10:00am. Possibly one of the reasons why we have a little less traction than back East when it comes to mass support of European Soccer.

BC's probably a little different as the climate more conducive to playing as well as watching.

Elephant & Castle show games. You'll see many ex-pats there as well just to watch. Pretty much the only place that shiw them, with sound.

Reviving this.

The Pint Whyte will be showing a ton of the Prem this coming season, along with offering food specials during the matches.

Search "The Pint Whyte Ave" on Facebook for week by week details on which matches are shown.

Additionally, The Pint is one of the "true soccer" bars in town. Meaning, they won't kick you out if you chant and sing. If fact, you're encouraged to do so.
