Default English Premier League and Chamions League Matches

I will be arriving in Abu Dhabi in the 1st week of October. Can anyone tell me if there is anywhere that shows matches from the English and Champions leagues? I do not really want to miss out on watching these games and was wondering if there is any place that one can go to to enjoy the games.
Another question if you would permit me. Is there a place where European expats hang around to chill in the evenings. I do not want to become a hermit in some flat for the duration of my stay.

Lots of sports bars but beware - you will arrive in the middle of Ramadan so ask about availability. Ab Dab is stricter than Dubai in Ramadan.

Not much of an answer really - sorry.

Hi Imalti

Unless they change things from last year (there seem to be minor variations on Ramadan regulations from year to year in AD), then you should find the sports bars open from 7:30 pm onwards during Ramadan. There is no restriction on showing live sports in public during Ramadan, so you should have no worries there. A number of bars show the UK matches - try the Tavern at the Sheraton, Heros at Crowne Plaza or the Sports Bar at Meridien Village.

For afternoon matches, you may find things trickier - try phoning around the hotels (many of them keep a coffee shop or bar discreetly open during the day, may be that they will show matches there???).
