Like watching football with your mates? Then throw a football party!
Enjoy having a few friends round to watch the big match together? Ever think it might be fun to make a bit more of a party of it? You've come to the right place!
The whole aim of this site is to give you some ideas and resources to help you throw a football party with your friends. Yes, you could just turn the TV on and hope somebody remembers to bring a few lagers with them. Somewhere at the back of the cupboard there's a packet of cheese and onion crisps you haven't eaten yet, right? OR, you could go to town a bit, and for very little money turn the whole thing into a party that everyone will remember.
It doesn't take a lot of effort to decorate the room in the colours of the team you're cheering for. There are countless sources of flags, bunting, scarves, shirts and other ways to decorate your room (or yourself!) available, and we'll try to link you up with some of them. Or take it a step further, and find some wine or beer from the nations involved. One thing we've got loads of on this site is recipes from around the world, so whether you're a budding chef or a bit of a novice in the kitchen, there should be something here that will give your football party some culinary pizazz!
Of course, there's nothing to stop you using the ideas on this site for a party that's not strictly football-related. But if you are having a few mates round to watch the game, why not make the most of the occasion?!
