The Best Fan You Can Be

If you’re headed to a live match this spring, or are attending a viewing party at your local sports bar, you may be looking for ways to best rep your team and be a good fan in the process. Whether you’re a longtime team supporter or are just getting into the sport, it never hurts to brush up on your spirit skills and fan etiquette. In today’s blog, we will be sharing a few tips on how to do just that.

Know the basics

Before heading to any soccer event, it is of course important that you know the basic essentials. Who’s playing? If you aren’t familiar with the opposing team, who are a few of the key players to look out for? If you’re still just starting out, you may also want to brush up on concepts like off sides and other penalties so you can know what’s going on at all times.

Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned fan, knowing your stuff before the game starts can allow you to enjoy that much more—while avoiding any possible embarrassment, too!

Create a friendly environment for all fans

This tip is by no means an attempt to downplay your team devotion—you deserve to show off your spirit loud and proud! However, it’s always worth the effort to create a friendly environment for other fans, especially those of the opposing teams. While you will no doubt disagree on certain calls (and will perhaps have a few choice words for one another), keep in mind that these fans want to enjoy the experience just as much as you do. Stay spirited, but be friendly, too.

Don your team colors proudly

This is perhaps the easiest part of being a fan… showing off your spirit! Whether you’re headed to a live match or are watching from your local sports bar, be sure to don your team colors in jerseys, hats, body paint—whatever you’ve got! This is your time to celebrate your team the best way you know how.

And remember—when it comes to showing your support, there’s no such thing as “too much.” Have fun with it!

Keep a positive outlook

There’s no denying that your team’s success—or failure—on the field can have a big impact on your mood, both on game day and the time following. But do try to keep a positive outlook when possible, even in light of big disappointments. The reason you got into soccer likely has something to do with your love of the sport and, of course, good company… so put this above all when it comes to handling your game day stress.

 

By keeping these tips in mind, you can rep your team to the end—while still contributing to a friendly, respectful game day environment.
