Champions League Final 2011: Rant @ London drinks



The United Rant podcast crew will be attending the Manchester United Supporters’ Trust drinks event in London during the Champions League final this weekend. There are several meet-ups planned across the capital and in Manchester – we’ll be at Weatherspoons O2 Centre, near Finchley Road tube station in London, for the duration.

Fans can buy tickets for any of the events from MUST – there are venues across Manchester and London. We’ll be at venue #11 and all profits from ticket sales go to the trust. Tickets guarantee entry for pre-match drinks for those going to the game at Wembley (with easy access via the Metropolitan Line), plus a screening of the match and after-party for those who are not.

Join us where we’ll be recording supporters’ views before, during and after the match for the Rant Cast!

If you can’t get to Finchley Road these other Manchester and London events are taking place, all bookable via the MUST website (or here for the Fabric nightclub event).

    FFS Southerners (I’m a bit jealous, actually, as I would have wanted to watch the game in London).
    It’s a bit late, but if anyone’s up for meeting up in Manchester, I’ll be around.

    What’s happening in Manchester for the final? Owt special?

    • http://www.unitedrant.co.uk/forum/profile/admin Ed

      I listed a whole bunch of events! Should have put them up earlier really but just wanted to confirm what the Rant crew were doing first in the unlikely event I actually sourced a ticket!

  • sheesh

    I’ve been getting e-mails from MUST re venues in London and Manchester that are showing the game.

    Most places are sold out.

    For people in London, they’re showing the game at Ministry of Sound.

    In Manchester, there are tickets at 5th Avenue.

    I’ll probably watch the game at home if nothing’s doing but I’d be up for a meet-up in Manchester, if anyone’s free.

      sheesh – Yeah, London events sold out in 20 mins. MoS should be a good gig though.

  • sheesh
  • sidney

    Pretty much all sold out

    Was hoping something free or cheap would be happening

    They should project the game onto the moon or something

  • Alfonso Bedoya

    Fuck all! But i do know the city centre pubs have been ordered to serve plastic glasses?

    Yeh! Thats what i thought. Hoggs head on Deansgate is free admission, so is the Nags head, and the Old Grapes in Little quay street. But they’ll all be tooled up with doormen, so make your mind up by at the latest 5pm or you’ll not get in any of them.

    Funny thing is, he’s not a football fan and probably doesn’t even realise the Champions League Final is on, so he may be in for a bit of a surprise when half his guests ditch the dance floor for the TV lounge in the hotel!

    I was going to host a small shindig at mine, but then a mate has booked a room for 20 of us in a pub in Heaton Moor, so that is where I shall be…

    can we come???????

  • Violent Banana

    IS the game actually being shown at the Ministry of Sound?? I can’t seem to find it anywhere on their website, or through google, or on the MUST website. The only link to it looks a bit dodgy to me…
    (here it is http://www.elevenevents.co.uk/)

      Violent – this is bone fide. I can confirm, have been helping to organise some of these events.

  • http://www.unitedrant.co.uk/forum/profile/admin Ed

    Amazingly there are some last minute Spoons tickets if anyone wants to join me…

    OK and if you’re in Manchester for the day there’s an extra venue at 5th Avenue for all you indie kids :)

    This will guarantee entry as it’s likely to get super busy.

    Thanks for confirming Ed – though I snapped up two of the wetherspoons tickets when you said they were available. Thanks for all your help with this – see you there!

    ffs fifth avenue?

    if their playlist is anything to go by, they’ll probably be showing the 1991 final rather than this year’s
