Get The Soccer Ball Rolling With a World Cup Party!

Get The Soccer Ball Rolling With a World Cup Party!

You may be more familiar with traditional American football, but beginning on June 11 and lasting for one month, you’ll be hearing about a different kind of football. The World Cup, the premier soccer competition for countries from all over the globe, is beginning again. Every four years, 32 teams compete to be the best in the world and we’ll be cheering for Team USA!

Soccer isn’t nearly as popular in America as it is in just about every other country that’s competing, but that doesn’t mean you can’t host your own World Cup party filled with global cuisines to get friends pumped for the games! You’ll learn fairly quickly that soccer is high-paced and exciting, and your guests will be happy you got them to jump on the bandwagon too!

Presentation Pointers:

  1. Decorate your home with your favorite team’s colors. For the majority that will be red, white and blue, which is actually pretty helpful and budget-friendly since you might have left-over Memorial Day decorations, or ones that you can save for Fourth of July. You can also put up soccer decorations from your local party store.
  2. Tell your guests to dress casual because after the party you’ll gather your guests and head over to the nearest park. Set up your own low-key, fun soccer game. This isn’t so much about competition as it is about having fun. Urge those who don’t want to participate to cheer on the sidelines.
  3. It’s probably best to have your party at night when there is a soccer match on television. Make sure to add that fact on your invitations. You want your guests to know what the entertainment is.
