Group Accommodation and Travel For Sporting Events
If you’re planning a stag do or hen party, there are few better experiences than a day out at a great sporting event. Whether you’re heading for a footie match, a cheeky flutter at the races or a day at the British GP, here are some hot tips for giving the lads or lasses the time of their lives.
Book tickets for a footie big match for an amazing day out. If you want a really special experience, look into booking VIP tickets – you’ll often get access to great seats and top quality perks. Clubs like Man U offer a private suite, or access to areas like the TV studio. Premiership tickets can be a tall order, but don’t write off matches in other leagues – fanatical supporters and a great atmosphere make the day, not just big name teams.
There’s nothing quite like the experience of being at a Grand Prix – the ear-splitting roar of the engines, the crowds, the winner’s podium. You don’t even need to leave the country – stick to Blighty for the British GP at Silverstone during the summer.
Soak up the atmosphere at an International fixture – the beers are flowing, the beer snake is growing and there are grown men dressed as giant chickens and bananas. Get the fancy dress on and pray for sun. Anyone would think there wasn’t a match going on… Headingley, Old Trafford, Edgbaston or Trent Bridge are favoured grounds for good natured drinking days out
A day at the races is odds-on fun for a more refined stag do or hen party. Get glammed up, grab a glass of champers and a copy of the Racing Post and start picking those winners. Check the dress code before you go – racecourses like Royal Ascot are strict, and fancy dress or branded clothing is usually a no-no.
Tips for a Great Day
Doing a bit of forward planning will mean your big day will go off without a hitch, so make sure you’ve got the tickets booked, your accommodation sorted, and you know how you’re getting to and from the event. You don’t want to be stuck at a stadium after the match when there’s drinking to be done! To make a group trip to a sporting event an unforgettable experience, you could set a fancy dress theme – but check the venue you’re heading for will let you in dressed as a gorilla….
