So you’re going to watch your first NFL game this weekend? Whether you’re a die-hard fan of a particular team or just a fan of America’s favorite sport, there are plenty of ways you can enjoy this big occasion with your family and plan a great trip during the NFL schedule week 7 games.

Get Matching Jerseys

Whether you’re a regular or attending a game for the first time, getting matching gear is a great way to show your team pride. So make sure everyone is wearing jerseys of the same player. You can also get custom names printed on the back of the jerseys. This will also provide a good photo-op.

Arrive Well in Advance

Arriving early for your first NFL game with your family is a great way to ensure you have the best seat in the house. It’s also a great way to get familiar with the stadium. Many stadiums have multiple levels, and there may be some stairs you need to climb to get to your seat. By arriving early, you’ll be able to save yourself the trouble of navigating these steps in a hurry while also ensuring that you’ll get a good spot.

Team Freebies

Here are some fantastic freebies to look out for at your first NFL game:

  • Free tour of the stadium! (a few lucky winners get this)
  • Discounts/concessions on snacks
  • Free parking or shuttles from your car to the stadium
  • Discounts on merchandise, like T-shirts and hats
  • Free commemorative items like bobbleheads, coffee mugs, and mini helmets for kids!

Eat Before the Game Begins

Eating before you head out is the best way to ensure you have a great time at the game. If you don’t eat enough beforehand, your body will be running on empty. This can lead to a lot of stress and anxiety, affecting your overall experience.

So, ensure you have snacks packed in case something happens or if you need something quick during halftime or after the game ends. Pack chips, crackers, popcorn, or even some fruit-based snacks such as applesauce, berries, or yogurt for when hunger strikes!


Hopefully, these tips will help make your first NFL game a great experience for your whole family. Just don’t forget to stock up on snacks and drinks. You never know when snacks run out at the stadium.
