Wilson’s World: Previewing the International Champions Cup at Murphy’s Kitchen & Tap
Wilson's Block Party at Murphy's Kitchen & Tap in Uptown before LFC takes the field for the International Champions Cup this Sunday
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Anyone who knows Wilson knows he is a huge Liverpool Football Club fan and for him this Sunday will be almost like Christmas. That is when his football club takes on Borussia Dortmund in Bank of America Stadium in the International Champions Cup.
But before the big football match Wilson will be hosting a great pre-match block party from 10am until 3pm at Murphy’s Kitchen & Tap in Uptown Charlotte. Murphy’s is a traditional Irish pub, but they are going Liverpudlian this weekend to celebrate Liverpool Football Club. Murphy’s is located at 445 West Trade Street in Uptown. There will be great food and drink, exclusive LFC merchandise, entertainment and raffles.
Wilson take the stage with The Anfield Wrap, guys who cover Liverpool FC news, gossip, analysis and past players and games. And have a killer podcast. Catch up with The Anfield Wrap on Twitter @TheAnfieldWrap.
Anfield Shop has teamed up with Wilson to provide plenty of jerseys, tees and souvenirs for LFC fans at the block party. Can’t make it to the party? Then be sure to go online and order LFC items at anfieldshop.com.
A portion of the proceeds from the event will go to the Jamie Kimble Foundation for Courage. The JKFFC was created by Ron and Jan Kimble in honor of their daughter Jamie (a fan of LFC) who was killed by an abusive ex-boyfriend in 2012. The foundation is dedicated to funding initiatives that educate, prevent and teach young people the warning signs that lead to domestic abuse.
Also partnering with Wilson’s Block Party is the Charlotte Community Toolbank. Currently they are asking supporters to donate game and special event items that can be borrowed by other community partners for their events.
There are still good seats available for Sunday’s match. Purchase tickets at the International Champions Cup website internationalchampionscup.com.
