Southampton vs. Watford: Classic English Christmas FA Cup football match – CNN

Written by By Rosalie Marshall

Manchester City will travel to Vicarage Road to take on Watford in the Premier League, but fans of English soccer aren’t the only ones getting set for action today.

Over in the county of Southampton, English second division sides are no strangers to the big time. It’s a rival set up for diehard soccer fans.

But for those who have made the trip from the other side of the world, Saturday evening’s game between the two sides at St Mary’s Stadium is the perfect break from the holiday festivities.

Enjoy this with a cup of tea and a tasty Christmas cake. Thank you very much.

Southampton is located on the south coast of England, roughly 100 miles south of London.

In recent years, the city, which houses one of England’s best museums, has begun to attract more fans from abroad, who are lured by its beautiful English countryside, and an array of fine wineries.
