Let Premiere Outdoor Movies Host Your Next Sports Watching PartyMay 15th, 2017
Here at Premiere Outdoor Movies, we love sports. Sports are a great excuse to get together with friends and enjoy time together. What better way to watch a sporting event together than to watch it on a big screen projector in the backyard.
If you’re drawing a blank about which big sporting events are coming up, worry no more. Below is a list of the great sporting events coming up.
Kentucky Derby – Horse Racing (May 6)
This year’s Run for the Roses is on May 6. The Kentucky Derby, the first leg of the American Triple Crown, takes place annually on the first Saturday in May at Churchill Downs. The Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes make up the other two legs of the Triple Crown. A horse must win all three legs to be awarded the Triple Crown. A feat only accomplished 12 times, the last happening in 2015 by American Pharoah. The Kentucky Derby has taken place every year since 1875.
NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs Western Conference Finals – (May)
The Stanley Cup Playoffs are arguably the most exciting playoffs among the four major sports in the United States, and they have not disappointed in recent years. But, you don’t have to wait until the finals to enjoy the good company of friends.
This year’s Western Conference playoffs have been a non-stop thrill ride. Starting with the top-seeded Chicago Blackhawks getting swept in the first round by the Nashville Predators, who are perfect at home thus far.
The Blackhawks getting swept in the first round was so surprising that it was the first time in NHL history that a No. 1 seed was swept in the first round. Even worse, it was the first time it ever happened in the NHL or NBA (the NBA playoff format is similar to the NHL.) The sweep of the 2017 Blackhawks will go down as one of the biggest upsets in sports history.
This year’s second round matchups include Hart Memorial Trophy finalist Connor McDavid. McDavid’s Edmonton Oilers. The Anaheim Ducks, St. Louis Blues and Predators make up the remainder of the Western Conference’s field.
Premiere Outdoor Movies is projecting a Nashville and Edmonton matchup in the conference finals with Nashville advancing to the Eastern Conference champion.
FA Cup Final (May 27)
The 2017 FA Cup Final is the 136th edition of the oldest football cup competition in the world. This year’s matchup will take place between London rivals Arsenal F.C. and Chelsea F.C. This year’s matchup is a highly anticipated rematch of the 2002 FA Cup final in which Arsenal defeated Chelsea two nill. The winner of the FA Cup is automatically entered in the UEFA Europa League group stage.
