How To Improve Your Football Viewing Center And Attract Customers

Viewing Centers in Ilorin could be the worst place to ever watch a football match. Imagine you sitting in a viewing center with spoilt benches and dusty floor, no fans, bad roof etc. 

Here is a business Idea for you to improve and attract customers to your viewing center if you have one.

1. Comfortability  :- Customers Comfartability is key when dealing with this type of business . Imagine the benches in your viewing center is padded with foam and the first 3 to 5 benches have back support ( where customers can rest their back when watching football).

2. Good ventilation:- Your viewing center should be well ventilated because of the crowd you will be accomodating. You can increase the ventilation by installing ceiling fans or better still standing fans at strategic places in your viewing center.

3. Good flooring:- If your flooring is good, it will attract customers. Imagine a viewing center with a bad flooring where your customers are jubilating because of a goal and everywhere is covered with dust. That is definitely not good. So, a good flooring will solve that problem.

4. A good Television:- With recent improvement in technology, one can easily get a good LCD television at a cheaper price. LCD televisions are advisable bacause of its good picture quality. When there is a good Television in place, customers will be eager to watch any football match.

5. Steady power supply during a football match is key. Just imagine the moment Messi or Ronaldo is about to score a fantastic goal and there is a cut out in power supply?. Cut out in power supply at times kills the morale of the customers. So a good generator will do the work because of poor electicity in this country.

I guess this little tip on how to improve your viewing center and attract more customers will help.

  • Your opinions is very helpful mostly the fact about constant power supply especially on special events or tuogh matches.and in addition to your points the should provide sockets for customers to charge their phones free and safe. It is one of the pattern that attracts customers.

  • Thank you for this post. This is actually a problem we've been facing at some viewing centers. Especially the ventilation issue, most viewing centers are actually hot during some heavyweight football matches. I hope viewing centers owners can actually see this post and learn what to do to step up their game.

  • Thank you so much for your time and consideration in this matter. You have said it all. You guys have heard it all. I think this is really not for viewing center only. It's applicable to the store and shop owners. Maintain sure place of business. Keep them clean.

  • With regards power, viewing centers should please run all appliances on UPS. This would prevent uneccessary cut in power especially the brief power outage. Viewing centers should be more spacious with optimum ventilation. Television screens should be placed at different angles too so that everyone in the center can see the screen properly without obstructing anybody's view

  • These are very good points to take note of because the problem am having with the viewing centers in my hood is ventilation, even with the fans, the air flow is not enough, i think owners of viewing centers should device a means to make sure their centers are well ventilated!

  • Guy you have said it all.The viewing centre for my area is nothing to write home about. Whenever rain is falling, your whole body gets wet because of how damaged the roofs are. The owner of the viewing centre has no manner of approach because he can even insult you when you don't pay him completely. Sometimes, when the match is over,he will immediately turn off the generator so that he can save his fuel. I wasn't even surprised when I went there last two weeks to watch Champions league match and so only about 10 persons there. The man has lost most of his customers. This is a man that used to have about 30 customers in his game house when there's a match competition. Others should learn from his mistakes.

  • The facts stated above is absolutely right but at times what you don't  expect shows up. My brother also show ball but at times when the match is becoming  tense, imagine Dstv telling  you ' the channel had been suspended,' or one of their wife is using  the Dstv subscription where the fans are boiling. We fans need to understand the owner at times when we found out that the system  just faulty. 

     Football showing is a kind of risk business and the owner also have to be patience with his customers. Most of them won't pay the exact amount and some behave so annoying. 

    To have more customers, you have to create a space for charging too as this will enable and attract the customers to patronize your business.

  • To make it more wonderful now make a beer palour next to it most big men love watching football at a round table sipping their beer.....all of the above is absolutely correct if you then add this more customers and money will come in

  • You are so correct, A viewing Center should have a very good television, should be comfortable for the viewers and have a good Floor finish. A customer upon seeing all these qualities will definitely come back tomorrow to watch more matches and thereby leading to higher profit.

  • The most important thing when opening a viewing centre is to consider the location if its good for a night game , and also comfortability matters alot because of the population there have to be a good ventilation system 

    - Mordi Christian - 2019-10-09 18:16:22 Quote

  • Yes, this is really helpful and informative but I think most viewing centres lack this quality especially the good benches and the floor which is a key to maximize customers in their business line

  • You are truly right about all you've said, people dont really know viewing center business in ilorin, they just opened viewing center without knowing anything about it, the TV's most of them are using are old ones and they just build a shop with wood, some don't even has a fan in the viewing center, I think it would be good if someone can actually works towards all you've said.

  • This is cool, but not everyone has a lovely business sense...some just wanna make money and they do not even care about the end users. If they consider the well-being of the end users, they'll get more users and their business will boom.....even most that can watch the match conveniently from their house will wanna patronize you cause you have a lovely place

    - Alonge Iyanuoluwa - 2019-10-09 21:27:24 Quote

  • Yes, this is good and I think you should something like "multi-league view" so that people can watch their desired leagues and watch their football idols play. Just like phillippe coutinho former Liverpool and Barça player now plays for Bayern Munich, Liverpool fans who still love his game might still want to watch him play.

  • this steps in having a very attractive football viewing center can some up to a comfortable and conducive environment for entertainment because they say health is wealth and once a place of entertainment can be dirty then I’m sorry to say such place would be of neglect to customers, with all this steps mentioned above, one really don’t need to spend much to get them you just have to spend wisely. Thank you

  • You know that punctuality and monetise the heart of business once you don't  disappoint your  customers they won't stop patronising you,  more over your capital will  determine how to make it unique than others viewing center , the  higher your capital,  higher your profit, you can even have supermarket besides and barbecue

  • Well, all I can say is that the country economy is not in good shape because there is no stable power supply and everyday things rate are getting high, even just for some viewing center to subscribe in full they are just managing to get medium and more. And in the other hand if viewing center is very okay people will afford to pay the bills if is not too cost. But I believe if the country economy can come back to shape then everything is going to be well...

  • You have said it all,most especially ventilation as well as a big TV size will make more viewers to choose your viewing center over others,making available a mini shop as well where viewers can easily get cold drinks,water and biscuits.

  • Nice one but to maintain business standard,you have to restrict some kind of reclex life style of customers like smoking Indian hemp, ciggaret and above all constituting nuisance in your viewing centre.  By restricting all these above mentioned life style I think you viewing centre will boom more.

  • Everything is right but you don't talk about how to talk with customers maybe when you want to start collecting money for the view. Having a strong UPS too can help in boosting this business to so that if there is cut out in electricity supply the decoder & would be backed up before switching to generator to avoid complains by customers

  • In  nigeria you need to know more about the location you wanna put your viewing center

    You need to make sure its a good place..

    Good for business and will yield lot of income...

    Ventilation matters a lot

    Good tiled environment

    - Abulogbon John - 2019-10-13 16:17:31 Quote

  • Should I disagree?.. Lol

    Football comes with a huge spirit, I believe veiwers care less about the environment, all they want is their supporting teams to win. That's why you have people even standing for hours and yet they still get the joy in watching the tv

  • These are very good point that should be critically locked on especially that of ventilation because if no ventilation anyone can suffocate because of too much and different body. heat mixed together, 

    Very clean evnviroment attract good people, 

    Consistency and accuracy of such center not come today and tomorrow you are not there one in such business will lose customers

  • Yeah, you are absolutely right about the points you've highlighted above. Imagine you watching a football match in a dusty and  crowded area plus the power supply is bad,men it sucks. I will also like to add that there should be provision for confectionery like soft drinks,water biscuit and the rest to be sold around for sometimes the games runs into late in the night and some of us find it difficult to get something to eat later on.

  • Ventilation and space are the main factors to consider in viewing center business because when your viewing spot is not spacious and well ventilated the  heat evolving from the human body while make the place stuffy and unconducive.
