Feature Matches

The USWNT are poised to finish top of their group with a win against Nigeria Tuesday evening!  The match kicks off at 6pm, and we are expecting an awesome turnout to support the Stars & Stripes!  If the Lady Yanks finish top of their Group they'll play next Monday evening, a second place finish would have them playing Sunday morning.

The Copa America tournament steams in to it's second week, with daily action live from Chile.  Highlights include the host nations encounter with Mexico on Monday evening, and Argentina v Uruguay on Tuesday night.  

Our Colorado Rapids have a U.S. Open Cup encounter with the Colorado Springs Switchbacks on Tuesday night.  This is the first ever Colorado Derby between the two Clubs, and it is a General Admission match.  The Rapids are back in action Friday night, with Oscar Pareja and FC Dallas returning to Colorado for the second time this year.  Whenever Dallas visit you can count on a great match, as the rivalry between the two Clubs grows ever greater!  There will be shuttle service to and from the Pub for this Friday night fixture!

On the Horizon

Next week the Round of 16 in the Women's World Cup wraps up, and the tournament continues on the weekend with the Quarterfinals!  The Copa America picks up again mid week with second round action, and our Colorado Rapids are away to Orlando City in the mid week, and away to Sporting K.C. on the weekend!

USA Women v Nigeria: The third group game for the girls brings them up against Nigeria. A win means the ladies win the group & qualify for the Women's World Cup knockout stages, a tie will need the other group result between Australia & Sweden to also be a tie & a loss means it gets complicated. Kick-off is set for 6pm on Tuesday & the American Outlaws Denver will have viewing parties at both the British Bulldog & the Three Lions. Details:
Colorado Rapids v FC Dallas: The Rapids face former coach Oscar Pareja for the 3rd time this season at DSG Park. The Stout Street Bulldogs are running the 'Rapids Shuttle' bus service to the game. No tailgate due to it being a Friday night match, but instead they'll be passing out some treats on the Rapids Shuttle to make up for it. There will be a keg of craft beer to drink upon arrival at the stadium. The shuttle departs from the Three Lions at 6pm & the British Bulldog at 6:15pm & costs $10. Tickets can be had from $20. Details & reservations:
