Next weekend is the long-awaited Grand Finals for both the AFL and NRL. And if you’ve put your hand up to host your friends for the day, it’s time to start organising your viewing party. Check out our tips for hosting a successful Grand Final viewing party:


Get Out Your Colours

Ask your mates to come bearing their team colours – whether you’re cheering for the same team or not, a little bit of friendly competition never hurt anyone.

Warning: Make sure the die-hard fans have a clear view of the TV (at all times). The last thing you want are the serious fans becoming frustrated if they can’t hear and see the game.

Food, Glorious Food

Food and drinks are the most important things to consider when hosting a viewing party – no one wants hangry friends. Prepare ahead of time – and if you’re feeling extra creative, try a new recipe to impress your friends. But have back-up snacks just in case this happens:
