It’s time to break out the stadium blankets! Football season is in high gear and that means the weather is starting to get a little chilly for those Friday Night Lights. Going to the football game is a fine Fall tradition for so many people.
The major league baseball season is just winding up and it may get chilly at the baseball stadium.
Soccer games are afoot (like that pun?) and you don’t want to miss any of the action just because it might be cold outside.
I love the feeling of the cold breeze as I cheer on my favorite team. But when the cold air gets a little too cold, I want to wrap up in a cozy stadium blanket and keep on enjoying the game.
Stadium blankets used to be just light to medium blankets in school colors. Other stadium blankets were these huge blankets, roomy enough to wrap a couple nearly from head to toe.
Many are still made of wool today, which is great if you live in the colder regions of the country way North from me. Stadium blankets today come in a big variety of patterns, colors, weights and materials. There are stadium blankets for everyone!
Am I making it sound like you need a big canvas tarp? No, not at all. There are lots of fun, cozy all weather stadium blankets just perfect for you to take to the football game. Let me show you a selection just to get you started.

What makes a stadium blanket different from any other blanket?
Well, these days the most important characteristic of a good stadium blanket is that it will hold up to all kinds of weather. It doesn’t snow where I live, but a waterproof stadium blanket is still a good idea for those evening sea breeze rain showers and snow flurries.
Some stadium blankets are pretty handy to fold into tote bags they come with. Others fold into a cushion. There are lots to choose from too.
You also want the material to be strong enough to handle old wooden bleachers and not get torn up and still deal with those cold metal bleachers with screws, bolts and other things that could catch on your blanket.
These NCAA all weather stadium blankets are perfect for taking to an outdoor sports event. They’re polyester lined on one side to make them waterproof.
