Watching Sports is Great for Your Health

By | AudioFetch News, Business, Fitness Centers, Food for thought, Restaurants, Sports Bars, streaming | No Comments

Sports fanatics everywhere rejoice! According to ScienceAlert, there’s research proving that watching sports is actually healthy for you.  

Vaughan Macefield, Professor of Integrative Physiology in the School of Medicine at University of West Sydney says, “We know that the sympathetic nervous system – which supplies the heart, sweat glands and blood vessels increases its activity during actual exercise, and now we have shown that it increases when you are watching a [runner] as if you were running yourself.”  

This means that your body gets a small workout just from watching a game. While watching your favorite team won’t replace real exercise, the research also proves that watching sports is an encouragement to get off the couch and break a sweat.

Watching your favorite team has psychological benefits as well. Sports psychologist William Wiener, PhD says that “People who root and are attached to their teams are less depressed than those who are uninvolved.”

Watching sports builds camaraderie with your friends which helps you live longer, builds identity with your community, and the entertainment factor is stress-relieving. Sports fans are also less lonely and have higher self-esteem. Best of all, watching sports with your partner can be good for your relationship (especially if your team wins!).   

So put on that face paint and join your friends at the local sports tavern for game day and have some healthy fun.

There will be lots of Super Bowl groups gathering in bars across the country on February 3rd and while they’re sure to have a grand time cheering and high-fiving over that touchdown or completed pass, many fans who watch at your establishment will also want to somehow hear the game over all of the excitement happening in the room.

3 Reasons to Become a Football Host Bar

By | Sports Bars | No Comments

There’s nothing quite like sharing the joy of a touchdown surrounded by your fellow alumni or others with a passion for a particular school or team. Heading down to your regular bar to spend a few hours can be the perfect day for some people, and a huge boon in business for that regular bar. If you haven’t considered it before, recent advances in both technology and how viewers consume live events should serve as motivation to make your bar a favorite destination for college or NFL fans – especially with football season fast approaching.

Here are 3 irresistible reasons why now is the perfect time to become a football host bar:

1. Increase Business

Hosting college football games can attract more customers since friends usually come in groups. Each game aired can multiply your customer count as different teams each have different fans, so hosting games on a weekend afternoon can rival the amount of sales you’d get during an evening. For most fans of college football, having a gathering place to watch their team with other fans is something that simply can’t happen at home.

2. Potential Free Marketing

By becoming a host bar, you are taking advantage of the opportunity to increase your bar’s brand presence. With Instagram and Twitter now becoming part of the football viewing experience, it helps for your bar or restaurant to be tagged in photos that get seen by thousands of other users. It’s not just free advertising, it’s also smart business to build your location into social media mentions.

3. Build Community

If you want to set your bar apart from other local establishments, show interest in your local college sports teams by making viewers feel as if it rivals the stadium experience. People will not forget where they were during exciting or heartbreaking moments. By making your location feel like part of the community, you create equity from patrons that will keep them coming back at different points of the year beyond the football season.

Part of becoming a host bar is having the resources to do so. This isn’t just space, food, and a television – you also need a solution that let’s your patrons hear the game over the other noise in the room. Products that wirelessly stream TV audio can really give your bar a unique viewing experience by giving people the power to hear what they want just by using their phones or tablets. And the best part is, these products are quick and easy to install, and affordable.
