The ultimate football night in

What better opportunity for a fun time than a football night to host friends and family and enjoy seeing the best players in the world compete for football glory? Honestly, we cannot think of anything nicer!  But how can one organise such a great event? Well, Wanderlust and Sagres can help!

We have put together a definitive guide to the ultimate football night. So, keep reading!

Perfect the space

The most important thing is that you want to create a welcoming, cosy environment where everyone can unwind and feel at home. Consider your guests' requirements and their preferred foods and beverages. Is there enough room for everyone to sit down?

It might seem obvious, but the most important feature of a good football night is the TV. Indeed, it is the main attraction in this situation and therefore needs to be seen by all of your guests. If it is not mounted on the wall, place it in the centre of the room and think about placing it on a stand or table to increase visibility. Or, if you can get a projector, that would be the best way to see it when everyone is gathered around.

Next, you will need to decide where you want all of your guests to sit. A sofa is always a great option. After all, comfort is very important when you have to remain seated for 90 minutes (plus additional time). We would advise you to put your sofa in front of the TV to offer the best view of the game possible. Do not hesitate to add cushions for everyone and a few throws for added comfort. If you need to accommodate a second row of fans, why not place some stools in the back?

It might also be a good idea to add a few additional speakers around the room if there's a danger that your audience will become boisterous. That way, you will still hear what is going on over your loved ones shouting”goooaaal”!

Lastly, do not forget about yourself. You deserve to have fun as well.

Get the right drinks and snacks

Is a football night really worth it without good food and drinks? Probably not!

If anything goes well with a football night, it is 100% beer! But to have a spectacular evening, we would advise you to go for a spectacular beer. So give Sagres a go, the treasure of Portugal! This stunning lager is light and fresh and offers a dry, moderately rich bitter taste. It is suitable for vegetarians and vegans, so everyone can enjoy a cold one! It is available in cans, bottles and in a luxurious 8 x 500ml cans and 4 half-pint glasses pack. If some of your guests do not consume alcohol, serve them Sagres’ 0%, the alcohol-free option!

To accompany your delicious Sagres, we would advise you to offer Portuguese snacks and treats! Why not start with Petiscos (the Portuguese equivalent to tapas), Pastel de feijão ( a savoury Portuguese bean tart) or Bola de Berlin (a sweet and decadent custard-filled doughnut)?


You obviously will be watching football most of the evening, but you might need to have a few activities up your sleeves for downtime.

A fan favourite is a good game of Fifa. But you could also opt for board games or a football trivia game. The possibilities are endless! Simply remember to have fun and put aside your differences to become a part of the football family.

You are now ready for the best football night of your life! We are sure that you will have a lot of fun and impress your friends with a cold glass of Sagres or Sagres 0%. Find out more about the lovely drinks we offer on our wesbite or visit our blog for more tips!
