1. TV / Projector 

First and foremost, you need a big enough TV to watch whatever sports you’re into. This might be the most obvious thing needed but it’s important to cover the basics if you want to impress your guests. The TV should be placed high enough for everyone to see and it should also be big enough, so your guests are not jammed packed in your home. Some people prefer using projectors which is also a very viable option. If you decide to go with the tv projector, it’s very important that you have a white background to be able to watch clearly. Also, don’t forget to make sure your tv provider is showing the event you’re trying to watch. Nothing screams party pooper more than a host that doesn’t plan accordingly. Make the necessary adjustments to be able to stream the event on your home.

2. Sound system

Secondly, you need to invest in a surround system for your entertainment area. In order to fully immerse in the passion of the event you are watching, it’s important to listen to the commentators and the sound of the arena / stadium. Every sports maniac knows for a fact that being able to listen to the event is a huge plus. This can be exploited by using a Bluetooth speaker and linking it to your tv. Raising the tv volume without any speakers is likely to raise the decibel levels to an alarming level that can cause hearing loss. High-pitched sounds are not appreciated by most people so make sure your sound system is up to par.

3. Snacks / Drinks

This is a must have for any party, not just a watch party. Make sure you have a wide variety of food and drinks for all of your guests. It’s important that you encourage your guests to bring anything they like but still have something to offer since you are the host. Indulge responsibly and make sure you got plenty of space in your fridge and there’s plenty of coolers.

5. Comfortable Seating

In order to watch a sporting event with total relaxation, the host must provide their guests with comfortable seating. The more guests you plan on hosting the more seats you will need to provide. Besides your couch there are a few other options you should consider to enhance the sports viewing experience. Counter height stools are great for standard countertops and kitchen islands. These provide a higher sense of relaxation as the body is closer to the ground and they’re commonly used in casual settings. If you own a home bar already, a bar height bar stool will be ideal for you. These bar stools tend to be about six inches taller than your standard counter stools. When looking for comfortable seating, keep in mind all the available options to you. From a adjustable height backless stool to a full swivel bar stools with foot rest. Think about your guests and the level of comfort you’re striving for. Feel free to browse out extensive line of bar stools. https://elegantbars.com/collections/bar-stools
