For football fans across the city, the month of August signals the start of the world?s most popular sporting league, the Barclays English Premier league. Chances are if you watch football, you support one of the popular teams that compete for English football? And the top prize is, the coveted Premier League Championship Trophy. The previous season saw this honour go to Manchester City while helpless Liverpool fans watched in agony as their club let slip one of their best chances to win the trophy that has eluded them for the past 25 years. If the drama and tension of last season is to be held as a benchmark, football fans will be eagerly looking forward to the start of the new season as City look to defend their title against rivals Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea, all of whom have begun to strength their squads. As such, the opening matches for all these clubs are sure to be watched with equal parts fanfare and scrutiny. Below is a list of sports pubs in Mumbai that will air the opening matches for you and your friends to enjoy with some good food, alcohol and friendly banter. This could be an interesting evening which could be added to your nightlife diaries.
Score Sports Bar and Grill, Malad
Score's main USP is the sheer number of screens: three main screens, a Projector for big games (sometimes Karaoke) and a number of mini screens, one each provided in the small booths that seat four. Although the regular patrons are mostly cricket fans, the management does not play partial to any particular sport and will screen all major EPL games, since they do have multiple TVs. If you are planning on bringing some non-football lovers, keep calm and simply let chill out at the indoor gaming section, which features foosball, a pool table and an X-Box console, while you and your fellow fans enjoy the game with a reasonably priced peg of Royal Challenge.

This place is a positive mad house during Premier League games, with the predominantly Catholic crowd of Bandra most of whom are football fanatics. Although it lacks in size, it easily makes up for it with the atmosphere, which during a game between top teams can get absolutely electrifying. The main section sports a massive 72-inch screen and the inner section has another 40-inch screen which generally telecasts the less-popular games (and sometimes cricket). Food and beverages may be a bit on the pricey side, but you can be assured of tasting some delectable and authentic Goan cuisine as you cheer for your favourite team.

When you have a pub named after and endorsed by a football club, it should be safe to say they take their match screenings seriously. Don't be fooled by the name though: the pub also sees patrons who are fans of other football clubs, easily recognizable as the ones who cheer when United go a goal down! An unrivalled experience when it comes to achieving a football-frenzy-induced atmosphere, the United Café is an excellent recommendation for those looking for the perfect setting to watch Manchester United's opening game. For EPL games, the pub always seems to have an attractive offer running, on both food and alcohol. With additional branches located at Mulund and Malad, this franchise looks set to take over the hearts and wallets of football lovers across the city.
