HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - Huntsville’s Propst Arena will host free, all-day NFL watch parties for the next four Sundays.
Downtown Huntsville Inc. CEO Chad Emerson says when he asked Von Braun Center officials about the idea of turning the 9,000-seat arena into a free viewing party for pro football fans and fantasy football leagues, the civic center was totally on board.
“Well we have an indoor football team that plays there and there’s a lot of TVs and a good pub in the Bud Light Café so we figured all of those pieces together makes a great place on Sunday afternoon to come down for great views of the park and a free place to watch all the games all day long,” Emerson explains.
Emerson says big-screen TVs throughout the arena will broadcast every NFL game – from noon kickoffs to the final whistle. Other televisions will be tuned to NASCAR.
The arena’s Bud Light Café will be serving food and offering $3 beer specials.
“The venue is fabulous,” says Emerson, “The Bud Light Café at Propst Arena is full of natural light, it’s convenient to get to, the TVs look good, there’ll be food and beverage specials; it;s just going to be the go-to place for football fans in Huntsville on a Sunday afternoon.”
