General Sporting Event Tips
When checking off the list of things to do for planning a sports party, there is one thing one must make a top priority: the food. Munching on snacks during a sporting event is as second nature to sports fans as cheering for their favorite teams. Party favorites such as pizza, wings, burgers, chips, crackers and sandwiches are one's best bet to winning the crowd over.
While costume parties are fun, limit them to birthdays and other events. Sports events should focus on just that. Show your team spirit with a jersey or T-shirt, and, as some fanatics, with a foam finger and face/body paint.
Organizing a sporting event that generates fans of its own requires the same amount of patient and determination as playing a sport. One must also be organized. Plan the event ahead of time to allow ample time for marketing and fundraising if needed. Reach out to friends, family and the media for help in those areas. Round up volunteers and train them well. Offer incentives to motivate them.
When hosting an event at a venue, keep in mind the estimated attendance and occupancy limits.
