So you are one of the people who likes to sit at home and enjoy football on a TV? That is quite understandable given the fact that not all of us have means to go and watch the matches live in the stadium.
Although there is not experience like that, watching it on TV or your monitor is as close as you can get to it.
To make your experience worthwhile, you need to pay important consideration to two important components.
Watching on TV vs Monitor
So let us talk about how you can make your experience the most life like. For starters, visual is the most important thing to consider. After all, you need to feel like you are looking at the real stuff.
For that the most important choice to consider is whether to get a TV or a monitor. They both have merits and de-merits. TVs are large, inexpensive (if you compare the same size) and have built in sound system.
Monitors, on the other hand, are expensive but have better visual quality.
The choice here depends upon how much budget you have and how far you would be sitting. I personally sit right next to the scree. Therefore, I own an IPS monitor that has some of the most beautiful colors imaginable.
If I were to sit far, then I would probably invest in a TV.
The ultimate option is to go for something like 50 inch Curved Samsung QLED TV. But they are ridiculously expensive.
If you have TV chances are that it can support 5.1 surround sound. However, if you have a monitor, you need to make sure that your set top box has a 5.1 support.
Yes, I stress the fact that you do need to invest in a 5.1 surround sound system in order to experience football the best way possible.
There are other things that you can look into like lighting, cooling etc, but for the majority of the people, display and the sound are two of the most important aspects.
