Relax at home or at the game with these quality loungers.
Tailgating is just as important as the game itself — if not more so. Nationwide Insurance reports that 40 percent of tailgaters spend more than five hours celebrating with friends pregame in parking lots outside stadiums all over the country. And up to 35 percent of tailgaters are so focused on the activities at hand that they never make it into the stadium.
Football fans need a place to rest their feet while they’re kicking back, whether it’s at the stadium or at a game-day event at home.
But it can be tiring to spend that much time grilling, drinking and gaming before the big event. That’s why football fans need a place to rest their feet while they’re kicking back, whether it’s at the stadium or at a game-day event at home. Here are a few of our favorites:
Hammaka Trailer Hitch Stand and Cradle Chairs
Sold separately, the Hammaka Trailer Hitch Stand and Cradle Chairs together turn a basic tailgate party into the ultimate lounging experience. The stand attaches to any 2-inch receiver and extends vertically to create two arches on which to affix chairs. Each arch holds up to 250 pounds. The chairs, available in hunter green or midnight blue, feature durable, UV-protected polyester seats and footrests, with hardwood dowels to hold them in place.
Zero Gravity Chair
What’s better than a chair covered in team colors? A chair that proudly displays a favorite team logo. College Covers offers the Zero Gravity Chair, which has an all-steel powder-coated frame and adjusts from 90 to 160 degrees, ensuring that anyone can find the ideal position. Multiple versions of the chair are available to reflect collegiate team loyalties. Additional chair cushions are also available.
Sports enthusiasts who purchase Picnic Time’s Fusion Chair may rarely leave it, thanks to its handy accessories. Covered in polyester canvas, the portable chair includes a detachable cooler, a detachable armrest with cup holder, and a fold-out table. The chair can hold up to 350 pounds and has low sidebars to keep it from sinking into less sturdy ground. Coordinating umbrellas are sold separately.
Camp Table and Chairs Set
Sidestep the problem of finding a table to match their chairs by purchasing a ready-made set. North Pole’s Camp Table and Chairs Set can be easily transported to any tailgate bash and set up to accommodate up to four people. Each chair can hold up 225 pounds; the table, with the aid of a hard board, holds up to 90 pounds. The four chairs are attached to the system’s lightweight steel frame, so there’s no risk of them blowing away, either.
