Cosmos Copa 2014

NYC Scotland have entered the 2014 edition of the Cosmos Copa, which now features teams representing 40 countries. Details are TBD but the qualifying round will likely be the last weekend in June or first weekend in July.

We’re always looking for players, so if you’re a Scottish soccer player, get in touch.

 

Scotland v USA: Friday 15th November

Game on at 3.05pm at the usual venue, the Football Factory at Legends, W 33rd b/w 5th and Broadway.

Also the The Highlander NYC bar is screening the game in conjunction with the American-Scottish foundation, details here. W 39th b/w 5th + 6th, and also a 3.05pm kickoff.

Let’s hope Scotland play like this:

While the USA show up like this:

 

Macedonia v Scotland: Tuesday 10th @ 2.30pm

Live at the Football Factory @ Legends, W 33rd b/w 5th and Broadway.

Belgium v Scotland – Friday 6 September

3pm KO @ Legends, W 33rd b/w 5th & Broadway. See you there!

England v Scotland – Wednesday 14th @ 3pm

Wednesday’s game will be shown live in the Football Factory at Legends, W 33rd b/w 5th and Broadway. 3pm KO.

Brooklyneers, it’ll also be on at your borough’s two Scottish pubs: Isle of Skye (Williamsburg, Driggs b/w N 9th and N 10th) and the recently-opened Duke of Montrose (Park Slope, 5th Avenue & Bergen St). I’m told Brooklyn is in the same time zone as Manhattan so that would also make it a 3pm KO.

Who remembers this? I know I do.

Scottish Trivia Night on August 1st

Other trivia nights just can’t compete!

“General Trivia with a Scottish tinge” on Thursday 1st August, 8.30pm at the Isle of Skye bar in Williamsburg (Driggs between N 9th and N 10th St).

Scottish Trivia Night

Will Big Eck celebrate your win too?

Hosted by Morrison Bowmore. Prizes possibly whisky-tinged, too.

See you there.
