How to host the perfect Grand Final party
Spending the night in for the finals? We have got you sorted! Here are 4 of the most important elements that are key to having the ultimate set-up at home. Your mates will be so impressed that they will want to spend every game at your house.
Food and drink
Of course the game is on everyone’s minds but the food and drink comes a close second. We are talking popcorn makers, deep fryers, pizza ovens and whatever else your stomach desires. Be equipped to make the ultimate food menu for the finals and impress all your mates at the same time. Also, you might want to stock up on lots of snacks such as chips and dip because you might have a few nervous eaters while the game is on.

Visual and audio
Been eyeing off a new TV for a while? Then this is the perfect excuse to upgrade because picture quality will only add to the experience. You definitely don’t want to be worrying about TV quality when your team are scoring the winning goal or are on the verge of losing. Once the visual side of things are sorted, the audio is next. Between the cheering and the chip and dip eating you still want to be able to hear the commentating, so speakers are essential. One of the easiest ways to instantly improve the sound is a sound bar, you won’t regret it.

Get your outfit sorted for the night with a fresh jersey or scarf because you need to make it known whose side you are on. Have a friend coming over that supports the other team? No worries, because you can buy anything from coasters to beer glasses for your favourite team to make your house as team themed as possible.

If quarter time or half time has hit and there is too much tension in the air to just sit there waiting for the game to start back up again, break the ice with a little music and fresh snacks. Use the most of this time to fill everyone’s drinks, top the food up and play some tunes to distract everyone from the fact that the room is divided up based on who supports what team.
Enjoy the game!
