With no fans in the bleachers, football season looks a bit different this year. But don’t let that stop you from enjoying Cardinals games with your friends. Here are some socially distant suggestions to spice up game day – 2020 style.

Socially Distanced Bars
Various locations around the Valley have opened up with limited capacity, social distancing, and football! Bring your friends to hot spots and enjoy the food and the game. Watch the Cardinals play the Cowboys on Monday Night Football on October 19 at the Chauncey Social open-air eatery and bar in north Scottsdale. Check out the game day drink specials at RnR on Thursdays, Sundays, and Mondays. The Sandbar Mexican Grill in Gilbert and Chandler is an ideal place to watch weekend football, and the Sandbar Desert Ridge in Phoenix offers football specials during games on Sundays, Mondays, and Thursdays.

Socially Distant Watch Party
Space out your chairs and couches on Sunday morning before inviting friends to your place to watch the Cardinals game in the afternoon. Have fun while staying safe by telling each of your friends to bring a different Cardinals themed mask. There’s nothing quite like a football watch party!

Zoom Watch Party
If you or one of your friends has access to legal streams of Cardinals games on their computer, try hosting a zoom party! One person shares their screen that’s streaming the game and the others watch. Use virtual backgrounds to express some team spirit!

Group FaceTime
If everyone’s watching the game on their own TVs, why not do a group FaceTime? Revel in the ups and downs of watching the Arizona Cardinals as you share your reactions, excitement, and disappointment at each play. You’ll save money on gas!

Twitter Thread
Utilize social media for a unique viewing experience. Create a common hashtag with you friends and tweet your thoughts and impressions of the game as it happens. Engage in online conversation with your friends over Kyler Murray rushing for a touchdown or suffer together as the Cardinals defense gives up a game-winning drive. The possibilities are endless!
