As the parent of a football player, you know that sitting in the stands cheering your kid on can quickly turn into a chilly situation during the fall and winter seasons. Knowing how to stay warm at a football game allows you to enjoy the action without having to worry about getting hypothermia.
Dress in Layers
Dressing in layers helps you adapt quickly to changing temperatures by removing or adding layers as needed. Start with a heavyweight T-shirt followed by a flannel shirt (available in men’s or women’s styles). Finish off with a weatherproof down jacket. If it’s really cold, or if you just want to show some team spirit, pull an oversized team jersey over everything else.

Keep Your Hands and Head Warm
Back when you first learned how to stay warm outside, you were probably told we lose eighty percent of our body heat through our head. The real amount is closer to ten percent, but that doesn’t mean headgear won’t help you stay warm (and possibly even ward off frostbite). A fleece beanie will shield your ears from the wind. (Right now, receive a free beanie with select jacket purchases from Triple Crown Products). If the temperature really plummets, a face mask provides more protection from winter’s cold bite. Don’t forget your gloves and scarf!
Choose Flannel-lined jeans
Jackets are all fine and well for your upper body, but how will your legs stay warm at a football game? We recommend these flannel-lined pants for men and flannel-lined jeans for women. If that’s not enough to keep your lower extremities warm, consider a pair of thermal underwear bottoms. Wrapping a warm blanket around your legs also helps keep the cold at bay.
If your feet aren’t warm, it’s almost impossible to stay comfortable at a football game. Consider doubling up on socks and choosing a pair of cozy boots.
Staying Warm with Stadium chairs
Anyone who knows how to stay warm outside knows wet clothing chills you quickly. Stadium seating may be wet or simply too cold to sit on comfortably, so pack your own stadium seat, preferably emblazoned with your team’s name.
Warm up Your Insides
No matter how cold it gets in the stands, a thermos of hot chocolate or soup helps you feel warm and cozy. The Cinna steel flask and cup set provides all you need for a warm mug of your favorite hot drink as you cheer the kids on to victory.
