On May 14th we will be in San Francisco when my husbands foolball team Manchester City are playing Stoke City in the English FA Cup Final at 3pm BST. Does anyone know of anywhere we will be able to watch this match please.
Thanking you in anticipation, Hilary

The game will be starting at 7 AM in the morning Pacific Coast Time, but despite this strange time, I still expect many of the bars to be open specifically for fans of the game. This will be broadcast live on the Fox Soccer Channel here in the SF area.
Here is a link to places in SF likely to carry the game if it is broadcast live. Also, you should be able to get it live at your hotel presuming they carry the Fox Soccer Channel. Check with them ahead of time to find out if this is the case--or if it is available on a pay-per-view basis if not carried free.
P.S. Congratulations to Manchester City on their exciting 1-0 over Manchester United--and to Stoke fans on their teams's dismantling of Bolton in the other semi-final.
Also, if you want to watch other soccer (football) games while in the US, here is a link to which games will be broadcast (and on what channels) during the next few weeks.
Note that the times list are for the eastern time zone. Since you will be in San Francisco, the game times will be 3 hours earlier (in other words, something advertised on this link as starting at 10 AM Eastern actually starts at 7 AM Pacific (San Francisco/Los Angeles/ Seattle) time.

My wife and I will also be in San Fran on 14th May and looking to join any other City fans to watch the final.
Any suggestions on a place showing the Final live most welcome.
