You may know that famous English actor Robert Pattinson is a big tennis fan, but did you know that he is also a huge football fan? Well, it is true. He watches and follows nearly every English football match live. While some people regard football as a men’s game, Robert Pattinson is always there to support the ladies. He is a firm believer of gender equality, and always cheers for the underdogs. As a result, he has an incredible fanbase in England, and his support often causes match-day attendances to rise.
If you want to keep track of all the major football matches involving England’s finest teams, then you should check out Robert Pattinson’s football games schedule. The schedule, as the name would suggest, lists all the matches that Robert Pattinson is scheduled to attend, follow, or watch. The following is the full schedule for 2019:
The English football season always starts late in the year, and this year is no exception. The sport often drags on through the winter, so the arrival of the nicer weather is very much welcomed. On Easter weekend, the league season kicks off, and Robert Pattinson will be there to witness some unforgettable games. In the opening match of the new season, Arsenal will host Leicester City, and the Foxes will be looking to make it three wins on the bounce. A highly anticipated derby between Liverpool and Manchester City is also on the agenda, while the last game of the weekend will see Chelsea take on Tottenham Hotspur.
As the season progresses, so does the popularity of English football. The bigger the match, the bigger the crowd, and it is always a packed house when Liverpool host Manchester United or when Arsenal play host to Liverpool. The Premier League is one of the most exciting leagues around, and it always surprises me how many people tune in to these games. With Manchester United as the defending champions, everyone is looking to see which team will end the season as English football’s king or queen.
In the summer, the world’s best players flock to England to play in the Premier League. Many clubs organize friendly matches against international opponents, and these are usually shown on TV. This is one of the highlights of the English football calendar, as the nation enjoys watching top-class players compete in exhibitions. This year, the English clubs will be playing against some top-class opposition, with matches against Spain, France, and Germany, among others. The fans travel to the matches in their millions, and the stadiums always fill up fast.
Champions League & Europa League Matches
The other big tournament in European football, the Champions League, also starts this year. The top English clubs will be traveling across Europe for the biggest matches, while others take the season off to recover from the demands of the Premier League. As with the Premier League, the draw for the Champions League often pits familiar foes against each other, with Bayern Munich, the club from Munich, being the obvious example. The semi-finals and the final of the Champions League are always some of the most enthralling matches of the year, and it is a chance for English football fans to see some of their favorite players in competitive action.
The English champions, Liverpool, have been drawn against the German champs, Bayern Munich, in the quarter-finals of this year’s Champions League. This is something that I have wanted to see for a long time, as Liverpool and Bayern Munich have been rivals since the latter’s inception in 1900. The first leg is at Anfield, and the second leg is at the Allianz Arena. This is going to be one of the most eagerly anticipated matches of the year. It is also going to be a test of Liverpool’s recent transfer dealings, as they have been active in the market and spent a large sum of money trying to upgrade their squad with the best players. They signed some high-profile players, such as Xherdan Shaqiri and Sadio Mané, and also invested in youngsters such as Trent Alexander-Arnold and Curtis Jones. The champions league is one of the most popular sports events in the world, and it is amazing to see how passionate the English fans are about their teams. English clubs are famous for their passionate fans, and this undoubtedly helps contribute to the huge size of the fanbase. Even if you are not an English football fan, you can still enjoy the games as they will be shown on TV in full color and with all the accompanying sounds. Keep in mind though that the games are sometimes affected by bad weather, so if you are visiting England during the offseason, then you may have to settle for some televised action and no live matches.
This year, the English clubs will be playing some top-class opposition in international friendlies. Liverpool will be playing a preseason tournament in Dublin, Ireland, while Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are set to take on the Clare boys’ team in a match that will be broadcast on TV. Elsewhere, Arsenal will be taking on a Greek team in a match that is also open to the public. The English clubs are always strong in America, and the presence of so many international players in the Premier League means that there will be plenty of matches to follow.
La Liga & MLS Matches
Another big football tournament is on the horizon, as the 2018-19 La Liga season gets underway. The Spanish league is one of the most prestigious in the world, with Barcelona and Real Madrid always attracting huge crowds and being the main attractions. The competition is often referred to as the ‘second season’ because the Spanish clubs take the summer break before the season starts again. The second season of La Liga always kicks off in mid-September, and the first pre-season game is this year on August 17th. The big rumor going around is that Barcelona will be playing a friendly against Real Madrid on August 31st, which is certainly good news for the fans. It will also give the players a further opportunity to prepare for the upcoming season, which will be an exciting one for all concerned. The Spanish clubs also compete in the Champions League, and every season is a big one for Barcelona and Real Madrid. It will be very interesting to see how both teams fare this year, as they are both entering a new phase of their careers. New coaches will be at the forefront, and the whole club will be looking to improve on last year’s impressive performances. This year’s Champions League is set to be the last one for Bayern Munich’s Louis van Gaal, who will be taking a well-deserved vacation after winning the European Cup with the Germans in 2016. During his four-year spell, he led Bayern Munich to a domestic double, a feat that not even the most ardent of his detractors could argue he did not achieve. His time at Bayern Munich will undoubtedly be numbered among the great European coaches of all time. After winning the UEFA Cup with Manchester United, Jose Mourinho is now set to take the helm at Bayern Munich. He will be tasked with repeating the club’s extraordinary feat of winning the European Cup twice.
The MLS International Friendlies
North America also has its own football league, the Major League Soccer. It is a much smaller league than the Premier League or the Bundesliga, but it has always attracted a great number of fans. In fact, the MLS is one of the most popular sports leagues in the United States. Toronto FC will be taking on Manchester City, Atlanta United will face off against Liverpool, and all of these matches will be broadcast on TV. The MLS is an ideal choice for American football fanatics, as the competition is always intense and keeps the games unpredictable. It should be noted that many of the matches in the MLS are also considered to be classics, with the rivalries between teams meaning that matches are often referred to as ‘rivalry games’ or ‘cross-town derbies’.” This is something that the German and English leagues have in common, as many games in the top flight are very much derbies. It is also the case in the Serie A, with all the big clubs having a rich history and an incredible passion for the game. In England, this often manifests itself in extremely passionate and loyal support, with many fans traveling from as far away as Australia to watch their team play. They are often referred to as the ‘Kangaroos’ due to their red and white jerseys, and thousands of them will be in Cape Town for the 2019 FIFA World Cup. The passion that English football fans have for their teams is incredible, and it is something that the rest of the world would do well to learn from.
