While it’s never going to be the same as being at the ground, watching (or listening) from home is the next best thing, and you can take some extra steps to make it that little bit more enjoyable.

Watch with Friends

Experiences are always best when they’re shared. If you’re allowed to have people round to watch the game with you, then make the most of it. Have a drink, discuss the line-up before kick-off, sigh at the errant passes, and cheer the goals.

This isn’t possible for everyone at the moment, of course, but if not, then why not get all your friends set up on video chat? It’s nice to share the game with others; even if someone on your chat has a faster feed than you, you always know what will happen.

Put on a Spread

If you’re someone who lives for their pie at half time, then a great way to enhance your game day experience is to cook up a storm before the game. Get all your favourite snacks in, bake your own pie, grill a hamburger – you’re in your own home so you can do what you want.

If you want to feel like you’re at a Man Utd game, you can even make yourself a prawn cocktail sandwich! It’s your kitchen, so you can up your snack game as much as you want.

Put a Bet On

If the game doesn’t seem to have quite the same edge when you’re not watching it in the stands, then you can always put a bet on. Of course, you’re always going to back the lads, but if you want a few extra tips on some of the other games, then check out the Unibet blog.

Responsible betting is a fun way to add a little extra tension to the game and get you in the mood even if you can’t be at the stadium.

Set Your Fantasy Team

If you forgot to set your fantasy team before the deadline, then watching any football can just be a sad reminder of what you missed out on.

You just know you’re going to be sat at home getting abuse from your friends all weekend if your fantasy isn’t going well, so make sure you’ve got everything sorted in advance. The number one priority might be seeing your team win, but a good fantasy weekend always helps.

Help a Fellow Fan

If there’s someone you know who is perhaps a bit older and struggles to tune into the game, then why not help them out?

The technology needed to watch or listen to the game can be complicated for older people to use, so give them a helping hand and make sure they’re not missing out on their beloved team.
