Homegate like a Champ this #Football Season! @hhgregg


So,you don't have tickets to the big game? Not a problem! Even without being there, you can enjoy the game with friends, family, plenty of team spirit and a great selection of food and drinks at your own Homegate Party! The NFL season is ready for kick off so it's definitely time to start planning the first homegate party of the year. To get started there are a few must-haves for a successful get together.

The Menu
At a traditional tailgate party the food is a big part of the event just as it is for homegating. The key is to prepare easy to eat food like chips, dips, hot wings, and basically anything cooked on the grill!

Beverages
Beer. Yes, for a lot of football fans, having plenty of beer on ice is a homegate essential. For those that prefer something else, be sure to have soda, bottled water and maybe a pitcher or two of margaritas! Yum!

Team Spirit
Of course you will want to show your team spirit and there are some fun ways to do it. Wear your favorite team jersey, hat, jewelry or face paint in addition to decorating your home or yard. There is really no limit when it comes to supporting your team so use your imagination and host a party to remember.

Homegate Stats:
  • 70% of Americans prefer homegating to tailgating
  • More than 1/3 of Americans use the half-time break as a time to check in on social media
