With football season in full swing, watching it live is a must for every big fan. Seeing the action-packed and adrenaline-pumping game firsthand is something you’ll definitely not want to miss.
But before you buy regular AFL or Anzac Day tickets, The Ticket Merchant says that it pays that you know the unwritten protocols that will keep you from becoming an annoying spectator. After all, you don’t want to spoil the fun of your fellow fan.
Make sure that you know these things before you sit down the bleachers and cheer for your favourite team:
Don’t Talk About Unrelated Stuff
Of course, you won’t want to do that. It’s football and nothing could be better than it at this time. When you and your friends are having some good cheer, don’t bring up anything unrelated since it will take away the focus from the game. Refrain from talking about how harsh your boss is or how your dog plays dead for the first time.
Just Sit Down
For Pete’s sake, sit down. The only time it’s okay to stand up is when the emotions of all the spectators are high and when everyone’s cheering wildly. Otherwise, you need to sit down and relish the build-up of the action. Another thing, don’t turn on the flash of your camera. Capture the moment’s momentum by using the sports mode of your camera. Better yet, keep your camera in the bag or your pocket until the game is over. You want a full experience, don’t you?
Mind Your Cheer
Cheering wildly is fine, but you’ve got to mind your words if you don’t want to get into trouble. Trash-talking may instigate a debate between you and the fans who are cheering for the other team. It’s not going to be worth it. Your slurs and insults have no place on this occasion.
Make the most of the event by following these unwritten rules. After all, you surely want everyone to have a good time.
