Fans worldwide are eagerly awaiting to represent their country! And what better way to root for yours than by hosting a viewing party? Here’s all the fun tips, tricks, and ideas to make your viewing party a hit!
Theme it for the matchup
Use decorations to show your team spirit! To start, have everyone wear the colors of the team they’re rooting for. Next, use the color palettes of both teams for tablecloths, streamers, paper plates, balloons, and more. Add any other soccer-themed decor you can find, like balloons. Personalize the decorations as needed, and don’t be afraid to think outside the box!
Get the good vibes going with great party food! Finger foods are perfect since they’re easy to serve and low maintenance for guests. Set out our pre-made service deli trays with deli meats, sandwiches, veggies, and desserts. We also have all the essentials you need to make your own charcuterie board. Finally, don’t forget the drinks! Set up multiple coolers full of water, soda, and alcoholic beverages for guests to grab throughout the night.

Set up the view
Bring the party outdoors! The only thing your guests will need to bring are folding chairs and blankets. Set up a large projector so it’s easy for everyone can see the game. Extra amenities such as a bonfire or string lights will bring a cozy twist to the party!
Before the game starts, play your own! This is a great time to bust out your party games, take bets, and spend quality time with partygoers and guests. Have everyone attempt to guess the perfect tournament bracket and whoever has the most accurate bracket wins a prize.
