Wednesday vs Cardiff - LIVE ON TV IN THE USA

Hi everyone,

The biggest game in YEARS is set to take place this weekend at Hillsborough and thankfully for those not able to get to S6 it will be on Bein Sports online.

That means of course Jack will have the game for us at the Football Factory, 33rd Street between 5th / 6th Avenue (downstairs at Legends). Kick off is 10am EST.

Whether you live in the Tri-State area or are simply here on holiday, get yourselves down to the bar, wear blue and white and make some noise.

These 10am kick offs are great to show the premier league supporter groups at the bar how MASSIVE we really are.

Spread the word and if you're not one of our regulars, make yourself known to them! WAWAW!!

Derby vs Owls - NYC Meet-Up April 23rd

Its getting exciting! Our next game live on TV will be Derby on April 23rd at 7.30am.

As usual for TV games we'll be at The Football Factory at Legends, 33rd St for this massively important game.

(Un)fortunately I will not be in NYC for this game - I will be at the iPro / Pride Park / Sheep Lovers stadium with a belly full of butterflies. But do not fear the rest of the New York Owls will hold fort in my absence. If you havent been down to our bar before, introduce yourself to anyone and they'll welcome you into the throng (they're under strict orders to do so!).

For those of you going to Derby (and Ipswich), i'll see you in the stand!

Kicking off 2016 with Games on TV

Happy New Year to all our New York Owls!

There's 2 confirmed games on TV for us so far this year the first one will be Leeds on the 16th January, a 7.30am Kick Off.

It'll be a cold one, so get wrapped up warm and we'll see you down at the Football Factory at Legends, as always.

Join the event on Facebook

The second game confirmed in 2016 is against Hull on 26th February, a much more pleasant 2.45pm KO on a Friday afternoon. As these friday night games are so rare we're calling this a social event and hope you can join us for a few beers after the game too as we take in some good ale bars.

Join the event on Facebook

For more up-to-the-minute updates from us make sure you follow us on Twitter.

For event details and photo's like us on Facebook.

If you're an owl based anywhere in America join the USA Owls Facebook group.

Lastly, here's a picture from our biggest meet-up EVER, the recent 3-0 hammering of Arsenal in the cup, one of the best days we've had as a group and as a team. Over 30 of us there to witness some absolute scenes!

FOUR LIVE GAMES IN THE NEXT MONTH! Join us in NYC for them ALL!

Hello fellow Wednesdayites,

I hope you're all enjoying the dazzling football, the giant killing and general buzz about the club at the moment. Ive got even more great news for you, despite already having 3 games shown over here this season (see pic below from the last one) we will have another FOUR in the next month, culminating in the MASSIVE game against Arsenal in the cup.



If you're in NYC at any of the below dates make sure you join me and our regular New York Owls down at the Football Factory for what is sure to be an exciting month. The links below take you to our events page, sign up if you can make it so we can get an accurate estimation of who's coming!

26th September - 10.00am KO - Brentford v Owls

17th October - 7.30am - Hull v Owls

23rd October - 2.45pm KO - Rotherham v Owls

27th October - 3.45pm KO - ARSENAL v Owls *NOTE 3.45 KO as clocks go back in the UK*

*UPDATE* ANOTHER GAME IS LIVE NOW TOO:

31st October 11am KO - Nottingham Forest v Owls

For the Arsenal game the Florida Owls group has thrown down a challenge to us in NYC claiming that they will get more people down to their meet up than us up here. Which is frankly madness on their part, we're older, bigger, better than the cocky young upstarts but we're happy to accept. Whoever loses will put up a prize to be won by any Owl based in the US and will be run through our Facebook Group. So stay tuned to that for more information nearer the time.

The USA Owls facebook group is a great place to find / create your own US Owls Supporters Group, we're all over the the America's, not just the US so if you haven't joined already make sure you're in and finding other Wednesday fans.

For you New Yorkers or folk on holiday make sure you follow us on Twitter and Facebook to be kept up to date on all our events as they get announced.

If you havent joined us at The Football Factory before, its downstairs at Legends on 33rd Street between 5th / 6th Avenue.

Drinks for Opening Day and an Update on Waddle

Hello New York Owls!

As its been such a ridiculous few weeks and my excitement for the opening game is now off the charts I thought i'd throw open an invitation to join me at The Football Factory on August 8th to celebrate the start of this new era. *UPDATE* We're now on TV! Well, Bein Sports Online but its better than a dodgy stream, so we will definitely be having a meet up at The Football Factory and it promises to be a barn stormer as we trot out some of our new signings for their first proper test. Come down and join us!  KO is at 10am, August 8th.

2 weeks later we are on TV AGAIN vs Leeds 22nd August 7.30am. We will of course be there for that, as usual against Leeds it promises to be a good crowd so hope to see you all there.

Lastly a couple of updates, we FINALLY have the signed shirt framed and hung at The Football Factory, its on the ceiling and you cant miss it as you come down the stairs to the bar. Its taken a massive effort to get this, both from the club and to get it hung eventually in the bar so make sure you comment on it to Jack and say thanks for his part, the whole thing cost us nowt so its all down to the kindness of Lindsey Taylor at the club and The Football Factory.


Even more exciting is Waddle has finally got back on Twitter to say he will do a US Tour NEXT August, ive been in touch with Brooke, his daughter who is managing it all and she says hes very excited about doing NYC with John Harkes. Obviously this is a long way away yet but very encouraging and i'll make sure you're all kept up to date on developments. :)

Hopefully see you on the 8th, and if not definitely on the 22nd!
UTO!

First Match Live on TV for 2015 / 2016 Season Confirmed as Leeds on 22nd August

Im sorry im so bad at updating this blog, please follow us on Twitter for constant ramblings and Facebook for less constant ramblings but more up to date than this!

We will be meeting up for the TV Game against Leeds at 7.30 am on 22nd August 2015 at our home bar The Football Factory at Legends on 33rd street btwn 5th and 6th avenue - ALL SUPPORTERS are welcome as always.

The Leeds game is always the best league match of the season for us as the NYC Leeds boys are numerous and loud just like us so we need as many Wednesdayites as possible down at the bar to be heard against the din from the dirty part of Yorkshire.

Hope to see you all there!

Paddy
