English Football on TV?

I'm an American who will be in Switzerland from 1 Dec - 10 Dec. We will be based in Zurich (where I have business on 4-5 Dec), but will be making 1- or 2-day trips to other towns.

I am also a mad English Football fan. I now get 7 or 8 games each week on my home TV. My TiVo will save some of them while I'm gone, but it will run out of space. Are there pubs in Switzerland where I can see some games? (If they also sell Guinness, my day will be complete. :-))

Re: English Football on TV?

there are many pubs in Zurich with Sky Sports or other channels getting EPL games.

Lion Pub, Nelson, Oliver Twist, Paddy Reillys.

Most will sell either Guinness or Murphy's.

I moved this from sport/fitness as hanging around a pub watching sport and drinking beer hardly breaks you into a sweat

Sounds like you don't drink hard enough.

English Football on TV in Switzerland?

My wife and I will be in Switzerland from 1-10 Dec (Business 4-6, sightseeing other). Although I'm an American, I've become a rabid English Premier League fan, since we started receiving 6-8 games per week.

Are there any pubs that show the games? We're staying in Zurich, but have purchased a rail pass, so can go anywhere.

BTW, I believe I posted a similar message yesterday, but can't find it now. If it turns up, I apologize for the duplicate.

Re: English Football on TV in Switzerland?

dmonahan, you can see Premiership games in the Nelson pub near the Hauptbahnhof and also in the Pickwick, about 15 minutes walk from the station. Enjoy yourself!

Aha. I was wondering about that, but I saw the threads on cricket TV, so I figured what the hell.

Thanks all.

Dick.
