Make sure that you send your invitations out with enough time left prior to the big day. All of the players should know that they’ve been drafted so they can get ready for the game! You can do DIY invitations using brown cardstock that you can cut out. Then with a white paint pen, you can add football laces on one side, and then turn it over to write in your details for a customer handwritten invitation. You may place the invitation in grass-green envelopes and address it per player.
However, if you’re not a fan of DIYs and you don’t have enough time, there are plenty of options you can order or print at home. You can try searching for free online football ticket invitations templates online!

Try setting up a display of food just like the stadium concession stand. You may wrap hot dogs in silver foil to give them that game day look. Another classic concession stands item is the Frito Pie, You can prepare a huge one to dish up from a casserole dish, or opt for the concession stand route by adding cheese and chilli right into small bags of Fritos. Make sure you add a football-themed fork.

Make sure that you keep the team and everyone hydrated with thirst-quenching beverages. Use mason jars and decor them with white duct tape if you’re serving up soda or juice, just to make a display of football drinks. Also, to make it seem like you’re really in a football game, you can get small bottles of Gatorade and print a referee Gatorade wrapper at home and cover each bottle.
4. Party Football Cake
Of course, even if it’s a football party, it wouldn’t be complete without a cake. To score more points, you may create a football field cake to make the party sweeter and more fun. It’s easy to make a football cake, you just have a frosted sheet cake, candy players, and goal posts made out of straws to kick off the game.
