The Value in Hosting a Football Event

Football fans rejoice, it’s finally that time of year again! You’ve been throwing the pigskin around all summer, spent countless hours prepping for your fantasy draft and built the perfect tailgate menu. Now, it’s time to dedicate the next 21 Sundays to sitting in front of the TV for 12 hours watching football. BUT, the fun doesn’t have to end there thanks to the NFL’s Monday Night Football and Thursday Night Football; how convenient considering Monday and Thursday nights are two of the best for hosting corporate events.

A big hit with clients

NFL games are consistently among the highest-rated television programs in the U.S. But it’s no secret that a lot of people like football. This makes football watch parties, tailgates and games a great way to win over your clients. They’re universally liked and leave a lasting impression. Plus, every game has that moment you’ll always remember, whether it’s an insane catch, crazy weather or the final score. You can also create your own fun moments by raffling off a hat or jersey for your guests. The next time the winner throws on their jersey, they’ll think of you.

In case you need some help deciding where to go when, we’ve laid out some of the most anticipated games and where to watch them this season. So book a football experience and watch your favorite team win, while you win over your client.
