Since popular sports bars are most likely to be packed with football fanatics, it is better to throw your very own World Cup 2018 viewing party at home. This way, you will not have to queue at the bar, wade through a pool of lively people and keep adjusting for the perfect spot to view the match. Besides, nothing is better than witnessing 32 countries competing on their football prowess along with your bunch of friends from the comfort of your home. 

So, what are you waiting for? Plan an elaborate FIFA World Cup 2018 viewing party with colour-themed costumes, sports memorabilia, munchies and some festive cocktails. Instead of the usual beer this football season, mix it up to make a quick cocktail at your home and keep yourself and your gang of friends in high spirits.
