Tis the season for Football Friday Nights, Buckeye Football tailgates, and Monday Night Football watch parties. If you love football, Hilliard has a variety of opportunities for you to catch a game.

With three high schools, “Everyone’s Hometown” has high school Football Friday Nights galore. Tickets to the games can be purchased online, and for rivalry games, it’s a good idea to buy your tickets ahead of time and get to the stadium early. The energy at Hilliard football games is high with active student sections, the sounds of the marching band, and the rallying of the cheerleaders providing entertainment before the first whistle. A trip to the concession stand for some hot chocolate or a snack is the perfect way to round out the experience. Whether the home team secures the win or not, Football Friday nights do not disappoint.

Hilliard loves Ohio State Football. While attending an OSU game at the shoe is an unmatched experience, Hilliard has a wide variety of viewing opportunities for those who do not have tickets to the game. Keep an eye on the events page for special OSU football watch party events! Ten Pin Alley has several scheduled throughout the season. Establishments such as Crooked Can, Beef O’Brady‘s, Nasty‘s and Otie‘s often have events including activities, live music and game day specials to elevate the watch party experience intermittently throughout the season.

Our Hilliard sports bars – Bankshot Billiard‘s, Overtime Sports Pub, and The Station Bar & Venue – will have the TVs on! A host of dining spots such as Sexton‘s Pizza, Habaneros, Louie’s Grill, and Crazy Burrito, are ready to make sure you have amazing food and service with the televisions tuned in for big games – several of them offer bucket specials and more! Looking for an outdoor football viewing experience? HillGarten will have the game showing on their outdoor screen.

The fun doesn’t stop with OSU football and hometown rivalries, most of the above also have the NFL Game Pass to ensure you don’t miss Monday Night Football. There is a viewing environment fit for every football fan.
