You love fantasy football. You live, breathe, and eat pigskin. You’ve been in your league for years and never missed a draft. But this year, you’re going to do something different. This year, you’re going to offer to host the draft party.
Choosing where to host your fantasy draft is one of the most important decisions you’ll make as commissioner. If you’re drafting online, you have the convenience of being able to do it from anywhere. But if you’re looking to add a little excitement to your draft, you might want to consider doing it in person.
The right place to host your draft will depend on the atmosphere you want to create. The important thing is to find a place where everyone can focus on the task at hand: building a winning team.
For the Serious League Who Needs Peace and Quiet
When it comes time to huddle up for your fantasy football league, you want to make sure you’re in a location that won’t distract from the important task at hand: winning. Here are a few quiet locations that will be ideal for hosting your league:
Yes, you heard it right… Look no further than your local library if you’re looking for a quiet location to host your fantasy football league. Not only are libraries typically quiet and free of distractions, but they also have plenty of space to accommodate a large group.
Most libraries have computers and printers that can be used for research or printing out rosters. And if you need to use any special equipment for your league, such as a projector or sound system, many libraries will allow you to reserve these items in advance.
A Coffee Shop or Local Cafe
Another option is a coffee shop or cafe. While this type of location might be slightly more lively than a library, it can still provide a calm and relaxed atmosphere ideal for strategizing with your fellow league members.
Plus, you’ll have the bonus of being able to fuel up on caffeine and snacks while you discuss which players will make the best additions to your team.
A park is an excellent option if you’re looking for a quiet location to host your fantasy football league. Find a spot away from the kids playing, and you should be good to go. You can enjoy some fresh air while you strategize and throw around a football with your league mates when you’re done drafting.
Just be sure to bring a blanket or chairs for everyone to sit on, and make sure to test the cell service where you are going to post up.
For the Lazy Commissioner
Couch Potatoes Only
Suppose you’re looking for an accessible location to host your fantasy football league; look no further than your living room. After all, what could be more convenient than having all of your friends over to watch the games on your big-screen TV?
This is a great way to show off your team’s memorabilia and home-field advantage. Just be sure to clear it with the wife or girlfriend first – otherwise, you may find yourself sleeping on the couch come fantasy football season.
For the Rowdy League
Did Someone Say Shots?
Look no further than your local bar if you’re looking for an easy location to host your fantasy football league. Most bars have plenty of space to accommodate a large group, and they usually have a few TVs that can be used for scoring purposes. Buffalo Wild Wings and Duffy’s are two of the best-known sports bars that are perfect for hosting a draft.
Plus, the drinks and food will help to keep your league members happy and engaged. Just be sure to devise a good system for keeping track of who’s buying rounds – otherwise, things could get messy (and expensive) in a hurry. And if you want to take things to the next level, you can even reserve a private room just for your draft party.
For Your Office Pool
Don’t Tell the Boss
If you have Fantasy leagues with your colleagues at the office, host it in your office’s biggest and best conference room. Just make sure to schedule it for after your boss has left for the day, so you can let loose and enjoy the draft process. After all, there’s nothing like gathering around the conference table with your colleagues, sipping on some beers, and trash-talking each other as you battle it out for imaginary football supremacy. So go ahead and use that beautiful conference room to its full potential – just clean up before your boss returns in the morning!
Plug in your laptop, fire up the projector, and make sure all of your team’s draft picks are displayed front and center on that big screen. You wouldn’t want anyone to miss out on Dave’s horrible RB pick, would you? Then sit back and enjoy the looks of terror on everyone’s faces as they realize they’re out of their depth this season.

Fantasy With a Twist
In RunYourPool’s fantasy league format, each pool member submits a lineup of 9 players weekly.

Instead of getting stuck with a team all season, you get a do-over every week. So if your team is performing poorly, don’t worry! You can just start from scratch next week. With this innovative approach to fantasy football, everyone’s a winner! Except for those who don’t spend time and effort researching and managing their teams throughout the season. But who needs those losers, anyway?
