My eldest has been going since 18 months old, he's always loved it! I think it's own to the nature of the child, watching it on TV is very different to being in a ground. Fortunately he's always loved it, has always sat well and watched the game. My youngest..… well he can't sit still for 5 seconds let alone 90 mins!
i think its up to you me and OH wont take our daughter yet as she doesnt sit still for five minutes! but we are going to change our tickets to the family stand we have at our teams stadium and has good facilities. It does get noisy and depends on the size of the stadium but i see it as being at a wedding etc as constant noise whereas at footie the noise isnt constant only if some one scores or starts singing or bad reffing etc its not full on noisy for 90 minutes.
We arent renewing ours next year due to this lo coming and money but when we thought we were i wouldve taken the baby with me in the sling. but when we have got funds we will go in the family stand.
Thanks everyone, no he's almost 2 and he won't be going till at least 2 and half I think, he has been to lots of shows like in the night garden live etc and is very well behaved at all the places we have taken him.. he loves being around lots of people so I think he would like it there I'm just worried about noise mainly as can be quite sudden, I suppose if he didn't like it I could always go with him and leave OH with others we go with so might take him after his birthday
Jesse first went in September, to Manchester united so a big team and a lot of people, he was just 3 and loved it, he's been to a few smaller local football team games before that, my brother takes him and took him to the smaller matches first to see how he liked it. X
What kind of match? Maybe if it was a big match such as Man Utd or Liverpool then maybe give it another year i'd say.. saying that I've been going to see England play rugby since I was about 2! Try him out at a smaller local match and see how he goes and go from there!
My LOs haven't been to one yet (other than to my brothers but he plays under 10s so its a lot different ) I think my brother was around 3-4 when he went to his first Derby match and he loved it but he's football mad and always has been
My LO went when he was 2.5 yrs. OH took him by himself as I was working and I was worried as Adam dosn't like crowds But he was quite good !He lasted until the 15 minutes into the second half when the first goal was scored and he took fright !! To be fair they were in the main stand, i think if he was in the family section it would've been a lot better for him!!!
