Regardless of what time of year it is, there are some awesome sports games that you can get invested in. Your favorite time of year is going to depend on when your teams play, so you should make the most of that time. Whether you are a sports fan wishing to entertain friends and family in your home, or a business owner looking to add a little flavor to the work environment for the enjoyment of employees, these five tips will assure that your game day party will be remembered always as the Super Bowl of events.

Have Great Food

This is the most obvious beginning to an epic event but be sure not to become one of the countless party hosts to mess up this vital step each year. Don’t be cheap, hosting the best event ever will mandate some money spent on quality food. If take out is not on the menu, prepare game day favorites for guests like wings, sliders, and potato wedges.

Provide Party-Goers With Flags

Your guests will love having flags that they can throw on plays whenever a stretch of the rules has been detected by them that works against their favorite team. While flags may be specific to football, you can adapt this to other sports as well. This is an especially great party feature in the work environment as co-workers bond and builds morale while calling penalties on players of the opposing team. Whistles can also be an option, but there is a chance that a few whistle-happy party-goers could eventually disrupt things a little too much.

Television Quality and Quantity

Your friends and family will not be content watching the game on a 14″ screen. Make sure the televisions used are prepared for the occasion. Also, multiple TVs in the home or office should show the game so that party-goers can move around while enjoying the game.

Prop Bets

Prop bets will assure that all aspects of the event are relevant to your guests. You can place bets on what kind of commercials will come, how many times an announcer will use a certain phrase, or how different friends will react to different calls. The type of bets you place will depend on who you are watching with, but make it fun.

No Children Allowed

No one will dispute how cute and lovable kids can be, but this is game day. There are plenty of other events to enjoy with the kids. Most small children will not be interested in a long sports game and when they grow weary of the event all in the party will be made aware. If they’re older and able to watch without badgering you with questions, then sure, bring them along (just double check with your buddies first). Alternatively, you can set the kids up in another room and check on them during commercial breaks.

No matter what you do, make sure that this is fun for everyone. Sports have a ways of bringing people together, so take advantage of that!
