Premier League Drinking Game Rules For The 2018-19 Season

Ready for the 38-week grind of waking up for Premier League games?! Want to get your weekends (or weekdays) off to a smashing start with a couple of beers? Here is the 2018-19 Premier League Drinking Game!

Who’s ready to watch some Premier League?! Who’s ready to play a drinking game while watching the Premier League?! You are! (If you're looking for a little Premier League preview, look no further than here)

I introduce the 2018-19 Premier League Drinking game! Every now and again, when you want to spice up your Premier League viewing experience, you can play this absolutely lit drinking game. You can also play it every weekend or even for every game, there is no judgement here. Heck,  you can even use it for LaLiga, Serie A or even your kid’s U-7 soccer match. 

Here's the deal. If you’re in the United States, you’re waking up pretty early for the Premier League. If you’re in the U.K. matches are at a much more acceptable time to crack open a cerveza. But I know plenty of folks who hit pubs in the early morning to watch their beloved Premier League clubs. So - take this gem with you or just play it on your couch alone or with your friends. Maybe even make some mimosas or bloody mary's. Or even some World Cup cocktails if you're really looking to get after it and you miss this summer's action!

Here’s the breakdown of the rules:


Pick a team. This drinking game works for any match you are watching.



One Sip

  • Goal Kick 
  • When Your Team Flops 
  • When Your Team Fouls Someone 
  • Any Set Piece (Corners, Free Kicks)

Two Sips 

  • Yellow card to someone on your team 
  • When your team hits the post 
  • When You Notice Kyle Martino Got A Fresh New Haircut
  • Any Manager Losing Their Mind On Touchline 
  • Any mention of a players World Cup performance 
  • Any mention of VAR 

Chug Your Drink

  • Red Card on your team

  • Anytime goal-line technology has to be used to decide a goal
