SCROLL DOWN TO SEE ALL THE MAJOR SPORTS APPOINTMENTS SCHEDULED FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS
Highlander Pub is one of the few pubs in Rome that is fully dedicated to sports. We show any imaginable sports event that is on your mind but we definitely put an accent on football! The English Premier League is fully featured together with the most important games from the Italian Serie A, The Spanish Primera Division, The German Bundesliga as well as the matches from The Champions League and The Europa Leage, American Football (NFL and College Football), hockey (NHL), Formula 1 and AFL (upon request) are also part of our sports schedule! We have 4 rooms entirely equipped with HD screens and you can come and support your favourite team with the commentary in the original language! The fans of soccer can also enjoy the games from other European and South American Championships but those usually come upon request! Rugby, basketball (NCAA College and NBA as well as Euroleague), tennis (The Grand Slam Tournaments), golf ( The Masters and Ryder's Cup).
Below is the schedule of all the football appointments for the next few days!

For any match or game that you don't see listed below or in the other voices of the submenu you can email or call us.
No point to keep this section up do date right now. The long anticipated and often hinted "second wave" is apparently upon us. Not a full "lock-down" yet but quite similar as far as regarding the bars and restaurants in Italy. Amazingly they have not banned the professional sports, maybe because we can be better entertained at "home". They "fixed" the error from the spring and now they are sticking to the "eternal" wisdom ("panem et circenses") appeasing the masses with bread (we wish) and circuses.
So, according to the "new temporary legislation" issued by the Italian government we need to close to public at 6pm (if we are lucky to be determined to be in yellow aka zona "gialla") or if we are in orange (zona "arancione") we are not supposed to allow any customers in the bar but only "take away" orders. Red or "zona rossa" means just "forget about it". This gives us no chance of broadcasting most of the sports events in the week days as they are scheduled to be played at night. Hence, we won't be posting our daily live sports schedule until some sort of "normality" has been reached or achieved. For further info, please contact us via email at: [email protected] or message us through Instagram, Facebook or just text us an SMS (also WhatsApp/Viber/Telegram) us at +39 3287653883
Otherwise, that's what's up... the new reality, the new normal: Forcing healthy people to stay home
* upon request - the games that are marked "upon request" need to be requested at least a couple of hours before the start of those. Once you request them you need to be at The Highlander at least 30 minutes before kick off time (or, for the late games 30 min before our closing time)! We cannot guarantee their broadcasting on our screens if you arrive at The Highlander in the last minute before their start or even worse - when they have already started
** already requested - the games that have been "already requested" might not be necessarily televised if the people who have requested them fail to arrive 30 min prior to the start of those games (or, for the late games 30 before the closing time). Generally those games coincide with many other venues and sometimes other guests end up requesting additional events in the last minute. Certainly we accomodate them in case the customers who have made the original requests do not show up.
