Prepping for a summer of sport: Where to watch it

Whether you like football, athletics, cycling, tennis, or golf, the summer of 2024 promises to be a spectacular season for sport.

Deciding where you’re going to watch it however, is a whole different ball game. Do you head out to your local and share the experience as a community? Or do you gather your nearest and dearest and watch it together at home?

If it’s the latter, your next decision is also important - which room will give you the best big match experience? Let’s take a look at the options inside our homes.

Feel like you’re there

You might decide to enjoy the live atmosphere of the game in your living room. It’s a cosy, more intimate space and with a big screen TV and surround sound, so it won’t just feel like you’re watching the game, it’ll feel like you’re there. 

This option is perfect for smaller groups, but you might be surprised how many people you can squeeze in, with more than enough room for an extra large sofa and a big bay window that lends itself to an oversized occasion chair.

Kick it up a notch

You’ll be the envy of all your guests in your open-plan kitchen / living space.

You can keep your eye on the game and feel like you’re part of the action, whilst keeping your guests stocked up with drinks and snacks. 

This spot is perfect for bigger groups and particularly good for families with little ones (especially those with slightly smaller attention spans). With the French doors opening out into the garden, there’s plenty of space for them to run free and play happily outside whilst you watch the game.    

Have your moment 

If you really want to hone in on your hosting skills, you could go all out and move everyone outside into the garden. Pop up a big marquee, position a huge projector screen, rally the fans and sit back knowing you’ve scored a personal best. 

Whichever spot you choose, it won’t be anything less than ordinary in a Countryside home and right now, you could save thousands on our homes across Greater Manchester with one of our incredible summer deals - check out the development websites for details and you'll see it really is as easy as 1,2,3.
