Sup Dogs will host a live watch party of the NCAA College World Series selection on ESPN Monday, May 27 starting at 11 a.m. in support of the East Carolina University baseball team. The watch party will be a first-come, first-serve event.
Despite being eliminated in the American Athletic Conference Tournament, ECU (43-15, 20-4 AAC) is ranked No. 6 nationally, and is extremely likely to get selected to play in the tournament.
Sup Dogs will be hosting the event at 213 E 5th St, Greenville, NC 27858, courtesy of the ECU Baseball team and the restaurant itself.
Sup Dogs gained fame earlier this year by winning the Barstool Best Bar Challenge, where they were pitted against other bars in college towns across the country in a March Madness-style bracket.
Sup Dogs won the competition and the outright title of Best College Bar of 2019, which gave it national notoriety, and increased the bar’s popularity within and outside of the state.
The bar has become a local favorite with ECU students and Greenville natives alike, making it the clear choice for the location the baseball team would host the watch party.
“Sup Dogs is the best college bar in America, and I can’t think of a better place to watch the selection show,” senior economics major Drew Gamble said.
Fans are encouraged to come earlier, in order to get a seat and parking. Entrance is free and open to the public and there will be an area blocked off specifically for parking at the event. Additionally, a large screen will be up for fans to watch the event.
Food and drink specials will be available inside, and ECU baseball head coach Cliff Godwin will address the fans in attendance.
