foods for the big game

Postby wargarden » January 11th, 2020, 11:41 pm

What foods and snacks do people in UK serve and eat before,during
and after watching the big game. Do the foods differ depending on the sport.
Are the foods different for soccer, rugby , cricket, tennis and etc.
Is it regional like it is in USA different cities or states have different
foods depending on the sport.

in this house there are no set foods for anything (even christmas dinner was indian where everyone did a couple of dishes) and we don't watch much sport.
i don't think brits go in for anything like that, or not as much as yanks, anyway - but then i wouldn't know.
the only obvious tradition is overpriced strawberries and cream at wimbledon.

As scully says we don’t tend to go for the ‘big game’ parties you have on that side of the pond. Most folks who watch football with their mates tend to go to the pub, I am one of those. I would never dream of having a house party with food and snacks the way Yanks do and to be honest I can’t think of anyone I know who would either. It’s the same with other sports.

Cheers

In the UK some football (soccer) clubs have a traditional relationship with pies ... but these are eaten by spectators at the game, not whilst watching on tv. Folk watching lawn tennis at Wimbledon can buy strawberries and cream to eat between matches. Some folk attending horse racing in the summer months will take a picnic, and cricket matches always have a break in the afternoon for sandwiches, scones, cake and cups of tea etc for the players; spectators will take a picnic.

As has been said, it’s not usual for people here to host gatherings at their homes to watch sports on tv ... if a group of friends want to watch a match together they will go to a pub or club, and then possibly they’ll go for an Indian or Chinese meal or similar afterwards.

I have a close relative who was involved with Dominos Pizza for many years. It is extremely common to send out for pizza during a game. It is also quite common for people to drink a lot of cans of beer.

Yes you’re right of course EM ... pizza and beers for two or three friends watching a game on tv :D

We don’t seem to do what Americans think of as hosting a party. Perhaps it’s because distances between friends and family members may be greater so they’re more likely to make a day of it and arrange a larger gathering involving whole families rather than just those who want to follow the match.

And you pinched our best player -top scorer in the league, last season. He's smacking them in for you now.

I thought the big game the OP was referring to was something like Grouse, Pheasant or Venison ... :rolleyes:

I think if there’s a big match we are more inclined to watch it in the pub or a club if we are interested, I remember 4 of us (1 English, 1 French, 1 South African, 1 Australian) touring local pubs to watch the Rugby World Cup on big screens; I’m not sure we could have seen all the matches at home as we didn’t have either cable or satellite then; this was the 2003 World Cup held in Australia so due to the time difference the pubs used to lay on special brunches.

Apart from that the only big matches I’ve known friends cater for specially are the US Rose Bowls, for which people occasionally have what we call a barbecue pre-match (they are quite late here) or provide popcorn, hot dogs or other foods seen as appropriately American, not taken very seriously but done for fun
