Are you ready for some football? If you answered yes, you must be part of the 14.9 million people that tune into an NFL game each week in the United States. Whether you operate a sports bar or restaurant with flat-screens, you probably broadcast football games in your establishment to attract guests.

Football paired with appetizers and beers can be a winning combination for a restaurant. The average NFL game takes more than 3 hours from start to finish so you’ve got a captive audience to sell alcohol and other menu items. Some customers might even make a day of it by sticking around to watch two or three games on a Sunday.

Franchises like Buffalo Wild Wings (BWW) in particular has done well catering to the sports crowd with their unique sports bar concept. According to reports, BWW did $3.669 billion in revenue in 2020 alone. That’s a whole lot of chicken wings and tap beer!

If you want to attract a crowd to your professional, college, or high school football game at your establishment, I’ve got you covered. Here are some marketing slogans that will have you ready for kick off.
