Soccer Party Ideas

 

Get your hand on as many different TV sets that you can and place them around your party/facility/event. On each of the sets, play a different soccer related video or DVD. The great part about this is that you don't even need to have the volume on (in fact, especially for adult parties where the guests will probably more enjoy their conversations more than the videos…)!

This is a great game that can passively last throughout the entire party. Print out several pictures of different soccer figures, equipment or other soccer themed images on paper. On each of the sheets of paper, write a different number or name bold enough to see easily. Place them throughout the party area, however, do not place all of them in easily found locations. Some of them can be in plain view (so that everyone can find a few) but most hide a bit out of site. Provide for each of your guests to have a copy of a list of all the images to find. Next to each of the image names, they are to write the number/name provided on each image sheet. The goal is to be the first to fill in all the answers by either knowing them outright, finding the poster or combinations thereof. You can also instruct them that all completed sheets can be turned in to you by a certain time, then a raffle can be held among all that are turned in for a prize. A third variation would be to offer a raffle ticket for each correct answer (the more they answer, the better chance they'll have to win a prize at the raffle.)

For fun great looking table centerpieces, visit your local library and check out some soccer books and magazines and arrange them with the books standing up, half open so that their pages can be quasi-seen.

Take photos of your guests and make soccer memorabilia cards for each one (these are great as thank you cards)

Disguise your invitations to look like event tickets to a big soccer game. In this way, it will be easy to put in the date, time and location (being sure to include your party location as the hosting 'stadium.')

Ask around to friends and neighbors to see if you know anyone who referees a sport. If you find someone, ask if you can borrow their referee shirt. This is a GREAT thing to wear as the host/hostess of the party. To finish the look, walk around carrying a clipboard and a whistle.
