Football season is back! Football brings people together with great food, refreshing drinks, camaraderie and unforgettable athleticism.

If you're hosting a party to kick off the season and to support your favorite team, why not kick it up a notch with some creative and memorable meal ideas? Below are some of our best food suggestions:

Buffalo Chicken Wings

Buffalo chicken wings are a classic when it comes to football. These spicy and tangy wings are always a crowd pleaser, and they taste great served with celery sticks and a side of blue cheese or ranch dressing.


Mini sliders are another great choice for a party. There are many different slider options, ranging from mini burgers and pulled pork sliders to crispy chicken and cordon bleu sliders. Be sure to provide an assortment of toppings and condiments so that guests can customize their sandwiches to their liking.


Everyone loves nachos - and you can easily make them for a crowd. Load up tortilla chips with melted cheese, jalapenos, guacamole, sour cream and salsa and let everyone dig in! You can also add toppings like shredded chicken, beef or beans to fill out the dish and keep guests satisfied. A nacho bar is another way to serve nachos. It keeps the ingredients separate and lets guests prepare their own plates.

Chili Dogs

Chili dogs are a cost-effective way to feed a crowd, and you can easily make the recipe in advance. Cook your favorite chili in a slow cooker and set out your favorite toppings, such as shredded cheese, sour cream, chopped onions and jalapenos. Meanwhile, cook all-beef hot dogs and keep them warm in the oven or in a separate slow cooker. When guests are ready to eat, they can top their hot dog with chili and all the fixings!

Vegetable or Fruit Platter

Looking to eat healthy? Incorporate some fresh produce into your spread. A colorful vegetable platter will look beautiful on your table, and you can offer a variety of dips like tzatziki, hummus or ranch. A fruit tray will also bring in lots of colors and fresh options, and you can experiment with different sauces like caramel or marshmallow.

Hosting a football party goes beyond just watching the game—it's about creating an unforgettable experience that brings friends and family together.
