    In BrE, you could use either.

    I am going to watch Manchester United play tomorrow.
    I am going to Wimbledon this year. I'm hoping to see Nadal play.
    I watched the Djokovic/Ferrer match yesterday.

    But surely in BrE, you wouldn't "go see" or "go watch" something. In AusE, we still "go and see", or "go to see something".

    You're right. I missed that. We would indeed add "and" (or "to") between "go" and "see/watch".
