Penny Lane Pub will not be the only watch party venue and here’s why. Sharing the pub with Liverpool has never been a problem when our matches overlap but come June 1st it’s a different story.
As a frame of reference, last season Liverpool supporters were being turned away from the pub two hours before the Champions League final. Our combined paid and general membership count is about 130 and the upstairs space (reserved exclusively for Spurs supporters) will safely hold only around 60. Based on the midweek turnouts for the quarter and semi-final CL matches plus the overall media buzz, it’s apparent that there are many more supporters in the area who are not yet affiliated with RVA Spurs. So in anticipating record numbers of Spurs supporters with friends and family (including kids) wanting to watch the historic match together with a bar full of other supporters we’re having an additional event at Capital Ale House and can now accommodate everyone including the overflow from Penny Lane.
Watching at Penny Lane Pub
Because the pub will be handling this as a private event, the only Spurs supporters guaranteed to get into Penny Lane Pub will have received invitations i.e., our dues-paying premium club members, a few general members who consistently turn out for club events and some folks invited by the pub. If you’re on the RVA Spurs email list as a general club member you’re eligible to get into the event on a first come, first served basis beginning around 2:30pm. If you received an invitation and RSVP’d yes, you and your guest (if any) must check-in at the door between 1:00pm – 2:30pm after which you are not guaranteed to get in.
Hopefully all of our current and potential club members will see that becoming a yearly dues-paying premium member can have advantages beyond the lapel pin and the 20 percent discount Penny Lane gives you and attending family members anytime throughout the EPL season.
Watching at Capital Ale House
The other official event location for Spurs supporters is at the downtown location of Capital Ale House (623 E Main St, Richmond, VA 23219) where there’s no limitation to the number of guests you can bring, you won’t need to get there extra early and it will be better suited for people with kids (they won’t be admitted at PLP) and casual viewers compared to the louder and more intense atmosphere at PLP. Capital Ale has set aside their lower level bar and patio area where several of our board members will be hosting the event. And when our Spurs lift the Champions League trophy at the end of the match everyone there is invited to parade back up to Penny Lane for a celebration of epic proportions!
