So, These Fights are Happening…

As you can imagine, everyone wants to watch Big Fights on FIFTY-FIVE FEET of HD TV!

We’re getting a TON of questions already in terms of if Big Al’s will be showing the upcoming ‘super’ fights, so we thought we’d put together a wee FAQ about the purported Mayweather-McGregor fight on August 26, 2017 and the Canelo Alvarez-Gennady Golovkin match-up on September 16th. So, let’s start the conversation:

Q: Are you showing the Mayweather-McGregor fight on August 26, 2017 and the Alvarez-GGG fight on September 16, 2017?
A: Yes and yes — that’s our plan! We’re a premier Sports Bar with 55′ of HD Action and who doesn’t want to see the world’s most incredible sports feats on 55 feet of BIG Screen!

Q: Who doesn’t want to see the world’s most incredible sports feats on Big Al’s 55′ BIG Screen?
A: You tell us!

Q: Does that Yes & Yes statement above include ALL Big Al’s Locations?
A: Well, yes AND no. We are hosting an annual private event at Big Al’s Vancouver that evening starting at 8PM and we will not be open to the public for the fight itself. BUT! Folks in the Portland/Vancouver metro area can still catch the fight with us at Big Al’s in Beaverton! For the most up-t0-date viewing opportunities, we’ll update this table:

Q: If you’re going to be showing the Mayweather-McGregor fight on August 26, 2017 or the Alvarez-GGG fight on September 16, 2017, how can I reserve a seat in front of the 55′ BIG Screen?
A: We’re a first-come, first-served Sports Bar and will be operating our “Game Day” Seating Policy when we show the fights. We may also create a few package opportunities should they make sense. Either way, you’re going to want to come early!

Q: Will there be a cover charge for the Mayweather-McGregor fight on August 26, 2017 or the Alvarez-GGG fight on September 16, 2017?
A: Yes.

Q: What’s the cover charge for the Mayweather-McGregor fight on August 26, 2017 or the Alvarez-GGG fight on September 16, 2017?
A: TBD.

Q: Why in the world is the answer right above this one “TBD”.
A: It’s complicated. Unlike residential cable accounts, we’re a business and the terms of the deals are radically different. Like you, we have to wait to see what the PPV terms are… which is based on viewing capacity. Have you *been* to a Big Al’s and have you seen the number of seats & TV screens we have? Like we said, it’s complicated. What we do know is that these fellas are getting in the ring for GOOD MONEY, and that gets passed down to all of us!

In short, complicated.

Q: Can you pretty, pretty please show the Mayweather-McGregor fight on August 26, 2017 and/or the Alvarez-GGG fight on September 16, 2017?
A: Again, that’s our plan — please stay tuned right here on our website or on social media for more information!
