Football Ticket Invitations

Before you throw your party, you will of course need to send out the invites. We love this football ticket invitation download.  These invites will set the mood for your celebration.  As a result you lucky guests will feel as though they are heading to a real match!

Football Party Food

Classic game day snacks double up as the perfect party food.  Hot-dogs, burgers, pizza, chips and popcorn! You could give each child a personalised water bottle which will also make the perfect party favour to take home. Another great touch is a show-stopping football cake which can make a great centre piece for the table.  You could even have it decorated with the birthday boy or girl’s favourite team colours.  Alternatively finish it all off with football decorated cup-cakes or cookies and hand them out with the goodie bags!

Football Games & Activities

Kick things off with some games, we have plenty of ideas for you!  From an impromptu kick about in the garden or park to a themed ready-made Pass the Parcel.  Grab yourself some of our gold prize medals to hand out to the winners.

Football Match

The most obvious activity is a football match.  Split the kids (and parents) into teams, set up two goals and let them burn off some energy with a friendly game.

Football Obstacle Course

Use cones, or any suitable household items will do, and set up a relay course with a goalpost at the end. Split the kids into teams and the first team to have every member dribble a ball around the cones and shoot into the goal wins.  There are many variations that can be used for this game, set up different obstacles, create targets to shoot at or make-up accuracy challenges.  Let your party guests come up with their own ideas, kids are great at deriving their own games once the seed is sown!

Penalty Shoot Out

Split the kids into teams and put an adult in goal. Each child gets two attempts to score and the team that gets the most balls into the net wins.

Pin the Football on the Goalpost

A variation on the traditional favourite, pin the tail on the donkey. Blindfold the kids, spin them around and see who can pin a football to the post.

Football Trivia Quiz

Prepare some age-appropriate questions or use this quiz we found online from Guess the football player.  This quiz is created especially for kids and includes questions about famous players, football teams and a whole range of other questions related to football.  Use small football party bag fillers as prizes; football tattoos make always a popular choice.

Football Party Bags

Handing out some football themed party bags at the end of the event is a great way to thank everyone for coming. These will provide an extra reminder of the fun they have had.  Everyone gets to take home a little piece of the action!

The first thing to do is select your party bag ready for filling.  Football Paper Party Bag’s are a popular plastic-free option with a run design and handles.  Alternatively, you may be looking for a themed loot bag which we offer in 3 assorted designs.  If it is a plain bag you are looking for we have the very thing.  Our plain coloured cello bags may be the very thing, blue, red and yellow are frequently used!
