How to Play Football Squares:ย 


  • Grid Setup: Create a 10×10 grid of squares. Assign one team name for the top (columns) and one for the side (rows). Fill the squares 1 to 100, making it easier for people to choose their desired square(s). See an example one you can use HERE.
  • Claim Your Square: Pick a square on the grid, or you can choose multiple squares if you wish.ย Replace the square number with your name so you know whoโ€™s paid for that square. To play, you must pay for each square you’d like to claim. Pick your price! Typical square amounts range from $5-$25 per square.
  • Numbers Matter: Right before kickoff, randomly assign the row and column numbers from 0 through 9, which will represent the last digit of each team’s score at the end of each quarter. (ex. Q1 score is 7-3; the winner of Q1 would be the person whose name is in the column with #7 and the row with #3).ย
