Join us in our hometown Manchester for the always-popular Broncos game against Cincinnati on Sunday, December 2, 2018.

We’ll be partnering with our friends at Gridiron & Gravy to provide you with a great night of football, food and drink at the Brotherhood of Pursuits and Pastimes near Albert Square.

We’re no stranger to the Brotherhood, turning up for New Year’s Eve, Super Bowl 52, and the 2018 NFL Draft, as well as using it as our warm-up bar ahead of NFLUK’s roadshow event in January 2018.

Tickets are on sale now for the Bengals game through G&G’s ticket partner Skiddle, priced at £7 (including £1 booking fee) or £5 for those with G&G membership.

It’s an 18:00 GMT start, so we’ll have access to our dedicated space from around 17:30 GMT, but you’re welcome to head over earlier if you’re a soccerballs type and want to watch the Merseyside derby from 16:15, which will be on throughout The Brotherhood.

On arrival, you’ll receive a wristband from the Gravy clown inimitable host Andy.


The wristband grants you Gridiron & Gravy guest membership for the evening, unlocking exclusive food and drinks deals, including select refreshing pints, bottles, spirits, and wine for just £3.40 and tasty pie and mash for just £5!

The rest of the food menu includes delicious wings, hot dogs, burgers, sharing platters, hot sandwiches and much more — head over to The Brotherhood website to check out the full menu

Please note that the kitchen closes at 21:00, but our man Lewis recommends the nearby Papa John’s if you’re still hungry, and there’s a 24-hour McDonald’s close by on Oxford Street too!

As well as these fantastic food and drink offers, you’ll be pleased to know that you’ll be doing your bit for charity on the night too: new for the 2018 season, Gridiron & Gravy and The Brotherhood will be donating 20p from every special-offer drink you purchase to charity! 

With plenty of screens around The Brotherhood, you’ll also be able to keep on top of your fantasy football teams with NFL Red Zone and the Sky Sports games will be on in the main bar.

The Brotherhood is open until 02:00 giving you plenty of time to take in the Sky Sports late game and meet likeminded fans of other teams before you head home or back to your hotel.

Our Manchester events are always popular with Broncos fans travelling in from across the country and even Ireland, and this promises to be a good night ahead of the festive season, even if the Broncos continue to suck in 2018.

Thanks to everyone who joined us at Pie & Ale in Manchester for the Buffalo Bills game with Gridiron & Gravy. It was a great night despite the result.

Pie & Ale has been a Broncos Europe favourite for a couple of seasons now, and was where Broncos Europe was founded. Pie & Ale never disappointed with their great food and drinks offers for Broncos fans, even staying open past 4am for us to watch Super Bowl 51 and the 2017 NFL Draft.

With our friends at Gridiron & Gravy relocating to dedicated sports bar The Brotherhood in November 2017, we’ll be moving our Manchester meet-ups there as well.

We look forward to seeing you all again in Manchester in 2018.
