Tis the season of giving, so give a scarf and get a scarf at Atlanta United’s 10th annual Boxing Day Scarf Exchange on Dec. 26. Bring a gently used scarf to one of our two pub partner locations, and you’ll receive a brand-new 2023 Atlanta United Boxing Day scarf (while supplies last) as you enjoy food and drink specials and watch the English Premier League on one of its biggest matchdays of the season. All scarves exchanged this year will be donated to United Way of Atlanta.
What is Boxing Day?
Most celebrated at its origins in the United Kingdom, Boxing Day is a religious holiday recognized the day after Christmas (December 26). A day that started out as a European tradition of donating money and “boxes” of clothing, materials, etc. to the less fortunate has now also become a celebration of soccer with marquee matches played throughout the day.
For a comparison in the U.S., think of the tradition of watching American football on Thanksgiving with the whole family. Now, multiply the number of games and add in the soccer fanatic culture of the U.K., and you have Boxing Day.
So get ready, bring your scarves, watch Premier League matches and hang out with Atlanta United staff and supporters to celebrate the beautiful game.
