YOUR GAME PLAN FOR HOSTING
A SPECTACULAR SPORTS PARTY

Be the Party Coach

Grab your clipboard, or maybe a serving tray, and get ready to coach this party to victory! We teamed up with Chef’d to bring you the basic game plan, with plenty of food and drinks, plus lots of team spirit.

Hydration Station

Staying hydrated is crucial for any quarterback, whether on the field or in the armchair. Draft flexible players for your bar cart. A Moscow mule mug can be a Moscow mojito mug!

Hostess Tip: Make sure you put out plenty of water, too. It’s going to be a long game.

Concession Stand

No waiting in line for your party guests—make them feel like they’re in the VIP suite by keeping plenty of appetizers within reach. And you can prevent fumbles by making sure they’re easy to eat with one hand!

Hostess Tip: Select a couple of dishes to represent each team and let everyone vote on their favorites. Then if your team’s not doing well, at least you might win the snack-off!

Show your colors! If your favorite team isn’t playing, it’s OK if you cheer for the one that matches your style.

Show Off Your Team Spirit

A good hostess always sets the tone. To borrow an old sports cliché, you need to give 110%! Dress up, get into it and cheer for your team!

Hostess Tip: Hostess Tip: Try to keep the cheering positive. Save the trash talk for the after-party cleanup.

Variety and portability are the keys. It’s too bad there’s not a sports franchise called the Moscow Mules!

Prepare appetizers that represent each team’s town. Buffalo wings, Chicago hot dogs—you get the idea!
