The event will be the first official watch along in the North

NFL may be a sport not too high on the interests of people in Manchester, but the truth is there is an ever-growing fanbase. To help further promote the game, a watch party is taking place at Shooters bar at the Printworks. 

The event is the first official NFL watch party to take place in the north, and it is set to be a great night. The New York Jets will take on the Miami Dolphins on the big screens, giving people in Manchester a great opportunity to get to know the sport.

Taking place on Black Friday, November 24, the game will be the latest in a flurry of NFL fixtures. To add to the occasion, Sky Sports will be presenting live from the venue with its team of pundits on hand to talk about the game. 

NFL broadcast team of Neil Reynolds, Phoebe Schecter, Jason Bell, Jeff Reinebold and Hannah Wilkes will be at the venue. There will also be the opportunity to have your photo taken with former New York Jets player Erik Coleman. 

Coleman said: “I am really excited to be in the UK to celebrate one of the biggest rivalries in the NFL. The Jets have an extremely knowledgeable and proud fan base in the UK, and I can’t wait to meet all our fans in Manchester and hopefully cheer the team on to a huge win!”

Every ticket includes one free drink and one light meal. 100% of the proceeds from the event will go to the NFL Foundation UK, which launched in 2021. This is a charity that aims to tackle inequality and lack of opportunity faced by young people aged 11-20 in underserved communities across the UK, including right here in Manchester.
