With the final of the FA Cup coming up on Saturday, here at Buy As You View we’re getting ready for a weekend dedicated to the nation’s favourite sport.
Whether you’re lucky enough to have tickets, or you’re watching the match at home with your mates, here are some of our favourite ways to enjoy the footie:
- Obviously a box in the stadium with a bottle of champagne would be a fantastic way to watch the match, but we think it’s even better being in the stands with a pint in one hand and a pie in the other, surrounded by other supporters. Nothing beats the atmosphere on match day, which is why this is our top way to watch the footie.
- If you haven’t managed to get tickets, we reckon the next best thing is to watch the match in a pub near the stadium – but you’ll have to turn up early to guarantee a space. If Wembley’s too far for you to travel, get a group of mates together and head down to your local. Don’t forget to wear your team colours to show your support, especially if there are going to be opposition supporters around.
- If you’ve got a widescreen TV then why not invite some friends over to watch the match at home? The atmosphere might not be as exciting as the pub, but at least you’ll be able to hear the match – and see the screen! Drinks are cheaper at home as well, and you can also make your own snacks. If the weather stays nice, then have a post-match BBQ. Here are some great recipes to get you started.
