When the weather warms up and the days get longer, it can only mean one thing, draft season is on its way! If you’re like most sports fans, you’ll probably be hosting or attending a draft party at some point over the next few months. Whether you’re a seasoned vet or a first-time host, these tips will help make your party a success. 

Send Out Invitations

These invites can be sent through social media, mail, email, or text message. The invite typically includes information about the draft, such as the date, time, and location. It also provides a link to the fantasy draft website, where participants can find more information about the draft. The draft invite is a great way for friends and family to connect with their commissioner and make sure they’re prepared for the upcoming season.

Food & Drink

If you have ever hosted a draft day party you know there is a lot to consider when thinking about food and drink. Catering should always be an option but there are a few things to keep in mind, though, to make sure the event goes off without a hitch. First, it’s important to have enough food and drink to keep everyone happy – no one wants to see empty platters or an angry mob when the keg runs dry. Secondly, it’s important to have a variety of food options to please everyone, from those who are health-conscious to those who just want junk food.

Provide Plenty of Seating

If you’re hosting a draft party, seating is key. You want to make sure everyone has a comfortable place to sit so they can focus on the task at hand: choosing their fantasy team. A few extra chairs or couches are always a good idea, and if you have the space, setting up a separate seating area for people who aren’t participating in the draft can be beneficial. This gives them a place to relax and chat while still being close to the action. Whatever seating arrangement you choose, just make sure there’s plenty of room for everyone to get comfortable. After all, a draft party is only as good as its seating!

Multiple Tvs or Projector

When it comes to fantasy draft day parties, there’s one question that always comes up: multiple TV’s or projector screen? Both have their pros and cons, of course. If you go with multiple TV’s, you’ll be able to see all the action from every angle. But if you go with a projector screen, you’ll get a bigger picture that everyone can see. Ultimately, it’s up to you. But we will say this: multiple TV’s or projector screen, your draft day party is sure to be a hit!

Create A Draft Board

Creating a fantasy draft board is a great way to ensure that you get the players you want on your team. It also helps to keep track of who has been drafted and prevents arguments amongst friends about who gets which player. Fantasy draft boards can be purchased online or at many retailers that sell sports equipment. They typically include the logos of all the teams and have spaces to write in the names of the players you want on your team. You can also find blank draft boards that you can fill in yourself. Either way, having a draft board is an essential part of any fantasy draft.

If you’re planning to host your own draft this year, follow the above tips to make sure everything goes smoothly. And, if you have a lot of mouths to feed and don’t want the hassle of cooking and cleaning up, contact us – we’ve got you covered!
