Hosting an Unforgettable Football Watch Party

football watch party

If you’re not watching a football game at the stadium, there is no better option than hanging out with friends and watching the game on TV together! Food, beverages, laughter, and sports make for a terrifically fun evening, but what do you do when it’s your turn to host the watching rituals? While it may seem easy, throwing together a watch party can be difficult if you’ve never done it before. Read on for some basic necessities for an impressive watch party.


Besides having cable, this is by far the most important thing to master. Everything else could go horribly wrong and it won’t matter as long as the food is great. First, make sure you have the right supplies. Of course you need the meat for grilling, but don’t forget the important side pieces like buns, condiments, chips, and snacks. After you’re stocked up on food, make sure you have an area in your home that can act as food central. It’s best if everything is in one location!


Every great football party needs some form of decor. Whether it’s a clearly biased salute to your favorite team or fun football-themed cupcakes, it’s important to get that gameday spirit flowing! There are thousands of fantastic ideas on sites like Pinterest, ranging from food to games and everything in between. Don’t be afraid to have fun decorating!


Will this event be a casual affair with football in the background, or will it be mostly die-hard fans yelling at the screen? Know which direction your party will lean, and adjust accordingly. The last thing you want at your home is serious sports fans getting frustrated with people talking over the television, so decide what kind of atmosphere you want from the beginning. No matter what, try to keep things light-hearted and fun – it’s only a game, after all!
