Football is back and after a huge weekend of Premier League openers last Manchester’s pubs are back to business as usual (kind of).

Being able to flick the big screen on for punters looking to cheer their local clubs is a staple in Manchester and there are some classic establishments dotted about that are famous for their football hospitality.

A handful of these pubs will also be handing out a free pint for you and your pals this weekend.

Stephen Cooper, sport marketing manager at Stonegate and We Love Sport said: “Last season saw empty stadiums and pubs across the country on match day and so the return of the Premier League is a huge moment for football fans across the nation.
