There is little doubt about the fact that lots of tourists coming to London actually come to watch Premier League football. The fact that the matches are played in London is just a bonus, but their final destination is not the Big Ben or London Eye, but White Hart Lane, the Olympics Stadium, Stamford Bridge and Emirates Stadium.
New as of 2016-17 is that West Ham United will play their matches at the fantastic Olympic Stadium. The stadium has been standing empty for a while, but finally a Premier League club will make this stadium their new home. If West Ham United can keep up their nice pace from their last seasons, the Olympics Stadium might in fact turn into a beautiful home for one of the top clubs in the English Premier League.
But, when it is time for the Premier League kick-off on August 13th few people will actually look for what is going on with West Ham. All eyes will look towards Chelsea with their new coach Conte, to Manchester City with their new coach Pep Guardiola and of course to Manchester United with their new coach Mourinho and their two star signings Ibrahimovic and Pogba.
The first weekend with Premier League football
This upcoming weekend will be a time for two fantastic London matches. On August 14th it is time for Liverpool led by Jurgen Klopp to come to the Emirates Stadium to play against Arsenal. That will be a fantastic start on Premier League football in London this season, but we should not forget about August 15th either. On that day we are ready for a London derby as West Ham United will travel to Stamford Bridge to play against Chelsea.
There is little doubt about the fact that football fans from all across the world will look to England in the coming football season. If you want to follow the Premier League as well then you can read more about how you can watch the Premier League online at watch-sports.org.
