There’s No Commentary 

First - and this might sound obvious - but there’s no commentary during a sports event. If you have been to a sports game before, then you’ll be familiar with the fact that you have to use your eyes to know what’s going on. But those going for the first time can find it a little shocking that there’s no commentator explaining everything that is happening on the pitch or field, or court. This is something to consider when choosing your seats. You might want to make sure that you select a spot where you can easily see what’s going on. If not, then you’ll need to rely on the massive screens all around you. 

It Can Be Quite Cold

Yes sports stadiums can be quite cold, particularly if they are outside with no roof. If you’re heading to a sports event during the later months of the year, then you should definitely consider wrapping up warm. Layers are often the best choice as you’ll be able to remove a couple if you do get too hot with all the people around you. Of course, wrapping up also gives you the chance to show your team pride. For instance, you might be attending a Rangers game. If that’s the case then you can shop from the unofficial Rangers store to get fully kitted out for the match. 

You’ll Lose Your Sense Of Self 

A sports stadium is one of the key places where you fully become part of the crowd around you. You’re all sharing the same experience, you’re all connected to the same atmosphere. This can lead to moments of euphoria and excitement that you have never experienced before. Again, if this is your first time, it can be quite shocking how quickly you lose your ‘self.’ Even your movements will become based on what people are doing around you. 

You Can Meet People Before And After 

Finally, a sports event is definitely a fun social activity. However it can be tricky to connect with people at the event itself. One of the reasons for this is that it’s incredibly loud to the point where you can hear virtually nothing over the cheers. If it does go quiet, it will be because the crowd is holding their collective breath and you won’t want to be the one to speak. However, that doesn’t mean there’s not chances to interact with fellow fans. If you’re heading to a match, we suggest visiting a pub nearby before or after the game ends. 

We hope this helps you understand some of the things that you should expect if you are planning on attending your first live sports game. We’re sure that you’ll have a great time once you sink into the surrounding crowd.
