Will your pub see such scenes of joy as this when the new football season gets underway?

These Germany fans had a night to remember at Fulham's Octoberfest Pub on Sunday when the national side beat Argentina 1-0 after extra time to take the title.

The pub was sold out for every Germany game and had to turn away around 200 people who wanted to watch the final.

Assistant manager Nathan Gee told Inapub: "It was an incredible night and an amazing tournament for us. We were booked out, mainly by Germans in the area.
"We had a lot of English people looking to enjoy the atmosphere but unfortunately we had to turn a lot away."

Football fans and pubs will now be gearing up the new Premier League season after broadcasters Sky and BT Sport both revealed their first batch of matches for the new season. Between them they will screen 15 top flight games in August alone.

First up will be another World Cup success story with former Netherlands boss Louis Van Gaal's making his Premier League bow. His Manchester United side take on Swansea on BT Sport at 12.45pm on Saturday August 16.

Bruce Cuthbert, director, commercial customers, BT Sport, said: "We are thrilled that pubs and clubs will be able to show their customers some superb matches for the start of the 2014/15 season.

"Our affordable prices mean that more pubs and clubs than ever will be enjoying the new Barclays Premier League season with BT Sport. On the opening day of the season, all eyes will be on Louis van Gaal fresh from the Netherlands' World Cup efforts and the start of his tenure with Manchester United.

"We'll show the current title holders Manchester City four times before October ends, including the fascinating clash with Arsenal, and both teams also meet exclusively live on BT Sport in the FA Community Shield on Sunday, August 10."

Meanwhile, broadcast rivals Sky will be screening four live games on the opening weekend alone, including champions Manchester City's trip to Liverpool and Premier League new boys Burnley's tough opener against Chelsea.

Sky Business managing director David Rey said: "20 of the 25 most-watched Premier League matches in an out-of-home venue last season were shown on Sky Sports and a quick look at our opening schedule of fixtures shows Sky Sports is still the place to go for more of the games that matter.

"With more football than ever before, including the launch of our fantastic new European football channel Sky Sports 5, our customers have never had such an unrivalled choice of football."
