Helpful Tips on Sports Watching

The best way to enjoy a game of sports is to watch it live!

Find out how to get to the venue!

Get the information on access to the venue of the event, and check how long it takes to go from your home to the venue. Make sure you have enough time in case you shop or become lost on your way.

Get a ticket!

If the event is an “admission by ticket” event, buy a ticket when you decide to go to that event. First, check the availability of tickets. Tickets for a popular sports event often sell out much sooner than you imagine. Note also that, in most cases, advance tickets are less expensive than day-of-event tickets. Getting an advance ticket through a ticket agency, at a convenience store, etc. will save you from worry.

Get to know the players and root for them!

This is the most important thing! Day-of-event tickets may be available for some sports events. To ensure smooth admission, however, buying an advance ticket is recommended.

Binoculars or opera glasses

Binoculars or opera glasses

Binoculars or opera glasses are a must-have item to get a closer look at the powerful play of athletes.


Food and drinks

Food and drinks

Eating and drinking in a stadium is one of the pleasures of watching a sports game live. It may be a good idea to buy food at a nearby store in advance. Bringing bottled or canned beverages into the venue of a sports event is basically prohibited (plastic bottles, too, in some cases).

What if it rains

What if it rains

Do not watch a sports event with your umbrella open. The umbrella can block the view of the people sitting behind you, and its pointy tips can be dangerous if they hit someone. Put on a rain coat, poncho or some other rain wear.

Measures against heat and cold

Measures against heat and cold

Sitting outdoors for hours in cold weather can lower your body temperature more than you imagine. It is a good idea to wear heavy layers of clothes or bring a pocket warmer or blanket with you. When the weather is hot, keep your body well hydrated to prevent heat exhaustion.

Getting prepared to go home

Getting prepared to go home

Right after the event, public transportation often becomes very crowded. Be prepared by buying a railway ticket or charging your IC card in advance.
