New York Owls Meet-ups in April

OK, we survived March somehow still in 6th place. April starts thick and fast and its essential we get off to a good start in our two local derbies and a massive game at home to Newcastle on the 8th.

The good news is 2 of those 3 games are being broadcast on TV so we will be meeting up on:

Tuesday 4th April - 2.45 EDT KO Rotherham v Owls
Saturday 8th April - 12.30 EDT KO Owls v Newcastle

We meet up for all our TV games at the Football Factory, which is downstairs at Legends, 33rd st, Manhattan, hope to see you all there!

As it stands that's all that's being broadcast in April, but im sure as it gets down to the wire at the end of the month we may get picked up again.

Follow us on Twitter and Facebook to keep up to date.

It's our 5th Birthday Party!

On February 7th 2012 four Wednesday fans arranged to meet for the Sheffield Wednesday v Blackpool FA Cup game at a bar in midtown NYC.

It was the first time any of us had met each other.  I had spread the word on Twitter, Facebook and Owls forums and a few had got back to me, but even then I was still unsure if they would turn up.

Thankfully, Jim, Craig and Keturah (pic below!) did turn up and we decided that the only way we were gonna get through watching this Wednesday team (we lost 3-0 to Blackpool that day) was to do so with other Wednesday fans and so the group was officially born.

While it was me that got the group together, I can't claim it was the first time a group of Owls had got together in New York, there were quite a few in the city and some used to meet up in Brooklyn and Nevada Smiths to watch games before I had even moved to America.

But this was the first time we had decided to get organised and call our-self the New York Owls. I used my social media nous to find and recruit others in the tri-state area and the group has grown and grown ever since.

I'm incredibly proud of this group, I've met a lot of the other supporter groups at Legends and I can honestly say we're the friendliest of the lot and real long lasting friendships have been forged.

I would like to thank everyone that has come down to a New York Owls meet-up over the past 5 years, whether you've been on holiday or live here, its you lot that make this group so brilliant to be a part of.

Come down to The Football Factory at Legends this Friday 3rd February, 2.45 KO, watch the Wigan match and join us for our 5th Birthday Party! There will be cake!

Much love, Paddy

Watch Huddersfield v Owls LIVE in NYC This Sunday!

This Sunday 16th October we will be live on TV at 7am!! To some that would sound like a silly hour in the morning to watch football in a bar, but the New York Owls are seasoned 7am drinkers, we've been doing it since February 2012!

We hope you can join us down at The Football Factory at Legends, Jack will be opening the bar for us, just before 7am - DONT LET HIM OR US DOWN!

And that's not all, the New York Owls are getting a reputation as all day drinkers, and this Sunday we're doing it again! The New York Red Bulls close out the regular season at home against Columbus Crew at 3pm and some of us will be staying out and heading over to Harrison, NJ after the Wednesday game has finished.

If you want to join in the fun at Red Bull Arena just let me know and I can get tickets with us.

The team look to be on fine pre-season form, there's some exciting transfer news building and it's all set up to be a historic season for the mighty owls.

Here in NYC we'll be following along as always downstairs at Legends, 33rd St, between 5th and 6th Avenue and we've already got some confirmed TV dates, so meet-ups are scheduled for:

New York Owls Playoff Final Meet-up in NYC

Hello! For those not lucky enough to head across the pond for the playoff final DO NOT FEAR, for I guarantee the best place to be outside of Wembley is at Legends with the New York Owls.

The Semi-finals at Legends were OUTSTANDING, we had around 50 Wednesdayites in attendance for the first leg, by far our biggest showing EVER. We were loud and we were proud as you can see from below.

The final will be just as good so if you cant make it to Wembley, or you're on holiday in NYC come join us downstairs at Legends, 33rd Street, between 5th and 6th Avenue.

Elsewhere in the Americas? Check out all the other meet ups happening!
