If you're an avid football fan who plays fantasy football each season, you may visit your local sports bar with friends to watch the game on the big screen. You should also think about using this venue for hosting your fantasy football draft event prior to the start of the season. Fantasy sports enthusiasts often hold drafts in their homes, but meeting up with your friends at the sports bar can be a good choice for this annual event. Draft gatherings are so common at some sports bars that many will provide you with draft boards and other materials that you can use. Here are some additional advantages of holding this event in this location.
Less Work For You
Hosting a fantasy draft in your home requires a significant amount of effort. Even if you only have a small group of fantasy players, you're typically expected to provide food and drink for everyone. This can mean that you spend much of the day in advance of the draft preparing appetizers, buying drinks and ice, and even setting up tables and chairs. All of this work can be time consuming, as well as be an expense for you. When you decide to visit a sports bar instead, everyone in your group can enjoy their preferred foods and drinks, saving you this work.
The Right Atmosphere
There's little doubt that a sports bar provides a perfect atmosphere for your draft event. Sports bars typically have all sorts of appropriate decor, including football jerseys hanging on the walls and football helmets on display in cases. Additionally, there may be team banners around the establishment and, of course, numerous TVs showing football programming. You may have a football man cave in your home, but it likely lacks the same atmosphere that a sports bar provides.
Less Time Invested
Fantasy football players enjoy doing the draft with friends, but seldom want it to last longer than it needs to. When you're in someone's home, it's easy for the draft to carry on for several hours. In the sports bar setting, however, the draft tends to flow more quickly. This may be because it's rude to spend too long sitting around at any establishment after you've finished your food and drinks. Once your group has enjoyed some beverages and an assortment of appetizers, it will get down to business and complete the draft in a timely manner.
