How to Host the Perfect Game Night
Even if youíre the biggest football fan in the UK, itís not always possible to attend every game. If you donít have a season ticket, local derbies can sell out extremely quickly and travelling to away games can be expensive and time-consuming.
However, itís still possible to make an occasion out of the weekend even if youíre not stood in the stadium amongst thousands of roaring fans. If youíve got the right set up at home, hosting a game night can be just as fun:
Sort Out Your Entertainment System
The most important part of any game night, sorting out your entertainment system is key to the whole evening being a success. If you think your television is too small, you may want to rent a projector for the night so that your guests can catch as much of the action as possible. Donít forget about the sound system also, some football fans hang on every word of the commentator and referee so good quality speakers will please every visitor.
Donít Forget About the Food and Drink
Make sure the fridge is stocked full of plenty of food and drink, maybe ask ahead and find out what beverages your guests prefer. Finger food is probably best to serve during the game; the staple crisps and dip would be a great place to start. If youíre wanting to really spoil your guests, serve something hot during the half time break such as chicken wings or pizza. Remember to find out if there are any dietary requirements beforehand.
If you really are on a budget and canít stretch to food and drink, always see if guests are prepared to bring their own supplies or pool some money together and order a Deliveroo just before the game starts.
Place Your Bets
Make the game a little more exciting on the night and have a look at the odds on offer on Unibet. Just for a little bit of fun, only place a bet you can afford to lose as football can always be an unpredictable game. If the odds are in your favour, you could end up with a tidy amount of winnings to help celebrate your teamís victory at the end of the 90 minutes.
Arrange Enough Seating
Seating can often be overlooked until everyone has arrived, and you realise some guests are lurking in the corner with nowhere to sit. Always think about this ahead of time and add some temporary chairs to your living space to accommodate your visitors. If you donít have enough seating at home already ask a neighbour if you can borrow some of theirs or even look for cheap alternatives online.
You can get an inflatable sofa and chair suite from Camping World which are incredibly comfortable and can be easily stored away in a cupboard when theyíre not in use. Not only will they be handy when your football night becomes a regular fixture in the social calendar, but youíll also be able to use them on your next camping trip or festival visit.
