You are going to LOVE our new Free Printable Football Bingo Game Cards – they’re the perfect blend of thrilling sports action and bingo fun! Whether you’re gearing up for Super Bowl Sunday or just watching another action-packed football game of the season, we’ve got something special for you.

This football bingo game is based on plays and events that may happen during the football game (such as touchdowns, offsides, timeouts, etc.) as well as other things that may be highlighted on television during a football game (such as mascots, cheerleaders, fans, etc.), so it’s a great opportunity to learn more about the game or to teach kids how the game is played. It works great with professional NFL games as well as college games or even live-streamed high school games!

These football bingo cards are a great way to involve the entire family and all of your party guests in the excitement of football season. So, whether you’re cheering for an extra point or groaning at a missed field goal, remember – every play can bring you closer to shouting “Bingo!” and winning the game!

How to Set Up the Football Bingo Game

Getting your Football Bingo game up and running is a breeze. Here’s what you need to get started:

Materials Needed

  1. Free Printable Football Bingo Cards: (available below) We have a set of six unique cards, each offering a different combination of football-related plays and scenarios.
  2. Sturdy Cardstock Paper or Copy Paper
  3. Pens or Bingo Markers: To mark off your bingo spots, you can use a pen, dot markers, or bingo daubers, plastic bingo makers, or you can use any small objects that you have on hand to cover the squares. Pennies, Cheerios, M&Ms, etc. all work great!
  4. Bingo Calling Card List: You may also want a pen and paper to keep track of the plays and events during the game. This is optional, but it’s really nice to have a list to cross-reference after someone yells bingo.

How to Play Football Bingo

The Basics

  • Each bingo card features symbols and scenarios from a typical televised football game, such as ‘two-point conversion,’ ‘missed field goal,’ ‘delay of game,’ ‘pass interference, ‘or ‘cheerleader close-up.’ The football graphic in the center of the card acts as a free space that everyone may cover at the start of the game.
  • As you watch the game, mark off the corresponding spots on your card. Use dot markers or a pen – whatever’s handy!
  • The first person to cover five spaces in a row (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally) on their bingo card template and shout “Bingo!” wins.
  • In the event of a tie game, you may choose your favorite tie-breaker method, but we usually resort to a classic game of Rock, Paper, Scissors if necessary!

Adding Fun Twists

Football Bingo isn’t just for the Super Bowl! Make it a regular feature of your football season gatherings and use these digital downloads over and over again with some of these fun twists:

  • Ante Up: Increase the stakes by asking each player to “buy in” before receiving their game card. A buy-in can be monetary or it can be something simple (and snacky!) like a candy bar, soda, or bag of chips. Use your imagination and come up with a buy-in option that works well with your group.
  • Color Coordinated: Assign one team to each of the different colors of bingo squares. You may ONLY cover that space if the appropriate team completes the action on the card.
  • Timing Specifics: to increase the difficulty, you may also opt to add specific timing to each of the bingo card’s columns – for example, “1st Quarter” for column #1, and every event inside of that column needs to be covered within the first quarter of the football game for it to count.
  • Super Bowl Party Games: For Super Bowl parties, include events unique to the big game, like halftime show highlights or famous commercials.
