4 Ways Your Community Center Can Take Advantage Of Football Season

With football season now in full swing, there is a good chance that your community is fully committed to their favorite team, whether the big game is on Saturday or Sunday. If they don’t have a favorite team, then they are likely committed to their fantasy football team or their NFL Sunday Ticket package.
As a community center, you have the ability to make the most of football season, but not many facilities do. In today’s blog post, Sports Facilities Advisory will give four easy ways for your community center to take advantage of football season.

1. Host Fantasy Football Draft Parties

Few things have taken over sports fandom in any particular sport quite like fantasy football has taken over football season. Whether it is daily fantasy online or season-long fantasy leagues, you would be hard-pressed to find a lot of football fans that don’t have at least one fantasy football team.
Your community center can take advantage of this by hosting fantasy football draft parties and offering special accommodations like catering options and draft boards. For many, the draft is the best part of the season, so hosting great draft parties could bring fantasy football lovers to your door.

2. Host Watch Parties At Your Community Center

If you live in a community that is fully devoted to a single team, whether it’s a college team or a professional team, hosting watch parties at your community center can be a big hit. Everybody loves watching their favorite team with their fellow fans, so if you give fans a place to come and enjoy the game with friends, they will almost certainly take advantage.

3. Host Flag Football Tournaments

While football fans love watching football, Saturdays and Sundays also bring out the former high school football player in many of them. Hosting flag football tournaments that coincide with college and professional game schedules is a great way to pounce on the competitiveness of your community and people remembering their football glory days.  

4. Promote Football Season To Your Community

Lastly, you can get people coming to your community center during football season by heavily promoting it. While watch parties and fantasy drafts are great, they only work if the community knows that they are happening. Start promoting for football season during the summer and get your community hyped for the start of the season.
