So What’s Our Story?

It all started with a local guy driven by thirst.

The year was 1987. Scott Murray was at a boxing training camp in Houston, Texas USA, when after one of his regular sparring sessions, the Brit started craving a beer.

He discovered the sports bar concept; somewhere that serves good food, good drinks, and shows sport all day, every day. There was nothing like this back in sunny ol’ Great Britain, but Scott realized this same concept could work at home, and several beers later, he decided he was better at drinking than he was at boxing!

Scott Murray opened the first Bar Sport in his hometown, in Staffordshire, in 1998. Millions of pints and almost 2 decades later, Bar Sport continues to grow.
