In just under thirteen months since its launch, FanWide has promoted and collected data from over a quarter of a million events nationwide. An event is an organized meetup where a group of sports fans gets together out of their home to watch one of almost 15,000 televised games, commonly known as a “watch party”.
The Houston Astros managed to fight their way into the World Series after beating the Yankees 4-3 in the ALCS. And what a time for the Astros to persevere, as Texas needed a reason to celebrate.
It’s been a rough couple of months for Houston after the devastation from Hurricane Harvey left thousands without homes and billions of dollars of damages in its wake. The rainfall from Harvey in Texas and Louisiana alone could have filled the Astrodome 85,000 times over.
The NBA 2017-2018 season is officially underway as the first games of the season were played over the last two days.
The season started earlier than usual to avoid overexertion of players that have to play too many games back-to-back. In the past, teams have benched players to ensure they don’t hurt themselves. This presents a problem to fans who pay money to watch their favorite player. For instance, the Cavaliers opted to rest Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love, and LeBron James in a game against the Clippers last season. Fans chanted for their players to make an appearance to no avail and their unhappiness resonated to the league. Adam Silver thinks that extending the season by a week should help prevent injuries throughout the course of the season.
The US Men’s National Team failed to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup last night after a tragic 2-1 loss to Trinidad and Tobago. This is the first time the USMNT has been left out since 1986. All they needed was a tie and they would have moved on. However, their loss mixed with Panama’s victory over Costa Rica and Honduras’s over Mexico put the final nail in the USMNT’s coffin.
There are times in every sports fan’s life when the usual pub fare just isn’t enough to supplement the game experience. San Francisco and the Bay Area not only have great sports, but also have great sports bars with good food. Fans no longer have to put up with lackluster nachos and soggy wings; here are some of the best watch party hosts where you can also fill up.
