Top Spots to Watch the Big Game

by Shea Homes Arizona on January 26, 2018

Last Sunday was filled with last second stands and crushing defeats, but the results are in and the Big Game is fast approaching! Hosting a game day party is a time-honored tradition, and one that should not be taken lightly. Even if you don’t have a horse in the race this year, parties are a great time to show off your hosting skills. From spreads of American cuisine hand-bought from your local pizza joint to picking decorations and the perfect pigskin to toss around at halftime, there’s a lot to think about before the fateful February 4. Let us inspire you with a few of our favorite game-worthy spots in our Shea Homes models.

So what exactly makes a living space suitable for a football-loving crowd? You’ll need plenty of room for standing and cheering, plus a few good spots to sit and enjoy the world famous commercials. Shea Homes® has you covered like an All-Star cornerback.

Fabulous BasementThe basements at Latitude at Cantilena are ideal for football festivities. The spacious, airy room in this Latitude model has plenty of room to sit, watch, and munch. This is a fabulous spot to spend Sunday night cheering your team on.

Spacious CondoOur Vantage condo homes feature surprisingly spacious spaces and this living room is no exception. The inset fire feature will give your rowdy friends a touch of class, while the large glass windows allow guests to enjoy the crisp February air without missing a second of the game.

Sporty Den/Flex SpaceIf big blow-outs aren’t your style, keep things simple in this den from The Reserves in Gilbert. With plenty of screen space and billiards to keep you entertained during timeouts, fire up the grill, grab a bowl of chips and a few friends, and hunker down until the fireworks go off!

Cardinals Basement Fan CaveCheck out the ultimate “fan cave” in the basement of a model home in Peoria’s Vista Montaña II community. The theme? Arizona Cardinals. From oversized theater chairs, to framed jerseys, a football field carpet and the best of the Arizona Cardinals replaying on the huge projection TV, this room checks all the boxes for the ultimate fan experience.

Now it’s your turn to show off your favorite game day spot! Post a pic on Instagram and tag @sheahomesaz

Throughout the season, we’ll have plenty of opportunities to join us for some football fun. Our much-anticipated Shea Homes tailgate parties will light up the Great Lawn at the stadium on October 15 when the Cardinals face Tampa Bay and December 3 when we take on Los Angeles (Tip: Follow Shea Homes Arizona and sign up for tailgate events to receive reminders!) These tailgate events are free to the public, and you’re all invited. If you haven’t been, you’re in for a treat. The Shea team is all about grilling and chilling!

Shea will also be teaming up with the Arizona Cardinals organization for events throughout the season, including our popular House of Cards events, where we welcome Cardinals cheerleaders, Big Red, and other Cardinals personnel to our model homes for games, autographs, photo opps and plenty of giveaways.

Follow us Online

Follow Shea Homes Arizona on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to be a part of the football fun. You’ll also get updates on important events like our Hometown Huddle community service project, which hasn’t been announced yet, but will be something that makes a big positive impact on our community. (Last season, together Shea Homes and the Arizona Cardinals completely renovated a South Phoenix community center, and the year before that, we added a playground to a very deserving Phoenix school!)

Here’s to a winning season with Shea Homes and the Arizona Cardinals!
