Every four years, soccer fans across the globe prepare with excitement and anticipation for the World Cup Tournament.  Now the world looks to Brazil to host the big party. Get inspired to plan your own World Cup viewing party.

Schedule –

The World Cup is surprisingly easy to plan around. Sure, there are a lot of games, but each team plays at least 3 games, so it’s easier to find a day and time to host a World Cup Party. Also, there’s only one game aired at a time – which means you don’t have to miss any action or alienate any fans. Check out the official World Cup schedule to find the best time/team combo.  

Decorations –

A World Cup Party doesn’t really need a lot of decorations. You could go soccer themed or deck out your venue in team colors. While the games are the star of the show, Brazil is the stage.  Decorate team-neutral with the official color scheme of the tournament and the Brazilian flag: blue, yellow, and green. Then ask your guests to come decked out in their team jerseys.

Snacks –

While World Cup Party decorations can be simple, you still have to feed the fans.. Whip up some cute and tasty treats that could easily double as décor. Pinterest is chock full of great ideas – but we thought we’d highlight a few for you:

The Viewing -

Most importantly -  make sure you have a nice big television screen or projector to watch the game. Plenty of seating is a must – with ample room for jumping up and cheering. Rent chairs and tables...or better yet, rent a huge TV.
