Ideas for Super Bowl email campaigns for sports bars and restaurants

Given that this event is strongly associated with food, beer, and competition, we believe these email marketing ideas for Super Bowl will generate some profit.

1. Warm up your football fans by highlighting some bright moments

You might want to remind your customers about the game way before the event itself. This makes the event even more anticipated.

Highlight some memorable moments from the previous season or share some news about football players.

2. Run quizzes about sporting event

Offer discounts only to the “Winners”. 

Run some small competitions, games, and quizzes, and ask questions like “How many touchdowns did this player score for his team?”, “What time did the best player of a season score a final touchdown?”, or “Solve this puzzle and get 10% off.”

You can make these quizzes interactive so that your customers answer directly in the email.

4. Let your audience pre-order stuff 

It is important to mention that a customer can make a pre-order with delivery on day X.

For those who have already placed an order, you may send a follow-up email to let them know that everything is okay with their order and it will be delivered on time.

5. Send a Big Game day reminder email

Reach out to those who haven’t placed an order yet or gain some hype on upcoming goods in your store by tying it to Super Bowl event. Tell them they still have some time left for an order to get delivered or takeaway, or add it to their wish lists.

7. Share the NFL schedule in your Super Bowl email

If you run a sports bar and have the right to broadcast the games, be sure to add the schedule to your emails so that guests know when exactly they need to come.

8. Provide free shipping on the Big Game day

The Super Bowl is a huge event, and many will be glued to their TV screens so as not to miss a single minute of this nationwide sports celebration. To not distract such passionate fans from watching, provide them with free delivery on the day of the Super Bowl opening. Party snacks and delicious food with free delivery to their doorsteps are truly what a football fan could dream of on the day of this event.

Remind your subscribers to check their subscriptions for a sports channel.

5. Share a list of sports bars that have the rights to play/broadcast the game

It would be really nice of you if you shared a list of the sports bars and channels that have the rights to play the Super Bowl 2023.

Be sure to mention if this will be live or a recording of the game.

6. Praise your best sports fans

Thousands of people have been supporting your team all this time. Maybe, after or before the Super Bowl game, it’s time for you to praise them. At least, the most determined ones. But how do you choose one? Well, asking them tricky questions about the previous game season is a good idea.
