Whether you are a huge sports fan, and watch sports week in, week out; or just like to watch the big sporting events – Super Bowl Sunday, FA Cup Final, and Wimbledon, to name a few – in my mind it’s always a good excuse for a get-together with family and friends.

The huge sporting events, for me, are an even better excuse to have a full on par-tay! And this year we have the Winter Olympics, the Commonwealth Games, and the World Cup. Plenty of opportunities to celebrate and to cheer your favourite teams/players to victory.

So you don’t have to worry about what food to provide for guests, I’ve rounded up a selection of Game Day Recipes that you can pick and choose from to feed a crowd. You could go down the buy stuff ready made from the supermarket route, but I think it’s nice to make at least one or two dishes from scratch. And with 45 recipes to check out, I know there will be something that tickles your taste buds!

Game Day Recipes

A couple of years ago I shared 25 Snacks & Dips for Super Bowl Sunday, as American Football (as we call it, here in the UK) has grown in popularity. My sister and brother-in-law are huge fans, and have gone to lots of games over the past few years when teams have played in the UK. With Super Bowl Sunday approaching I thought it was time to add onto that post, and create a new one.

But this time around, I’ve rounded up 45 delicious recipes including appetisers, main dishes, burgers, dips, snacks and desserts that would work well when you have a few (or  more!) friends and family over to watch *insert name of your favourite sport*!
