New York, NY – From 50 to 10 to 4. For weeks now New York has been voting in the ‘Best Soccer Bar NYC’ competition and this week the 4 winners were announced. Of the 4 winners, it is our great pleasure to say that 2 ‘Soccer Republic’ locations were included; McHale’s Bar in Manhattan and the only winner outside of Manhattan, Bar 43 in Queens.
The competition began all the way back on July 21st with 50 top bars in NYC competing for a place in the Top 10. Once the Top 10 was selected on August 21st each bar had a video shoot to promote their bar as the ‘Best Soccer Bar in NYC’. It appears all of the videos received tens of thousands of views on Facebook so the competition had really heated up as you can see below.
The voting finally came to an end on September 4th and the 4 Winners were announced shortly afterwards. Bar 43, located in Sunnyside, Queens, was a winner of this competition in 2016, but for the other 3 winners in 2017 this is a well earned first. Last year’s winners were treated to an appearance from legendary English International Frank Lampard who met with fans for pictures, autographs and a Q&A. You will have to check back with us to find out who this year’s star appearance will be, but it is sure to be announced within the coming week or so, so watch this space.
We are very proud to have 2 of our Locations finish in the Top 4 of ‘Best Soccer Bar NYC’ and we look forward to more of the same to come in the future. We would like to congratulate all 4 winners on a very well run campaign and for maintaining the kind of high standards when showing soccer that we thoroughly appreciate here at The Soccer Republic.
