3 Things to Consider When Planning the Perfect Funeral for your Sports Fan

1. Choose Flowers in Team Colours

Although people will probably want to send flowers to your loved one’s sports themed funeral, this doesn’t mean that you have to go with boring and non-fitting plants and flowers. Consider letting people know that you want the flowers to be in your loved one’s favourite team’s colours, or call the local florists and let them know about this preference.

Some florists might even add special touches by adding ribbon, vases or flower pots in these colors or even with the team’s logo on them. These flowers will allow everyone to show their support while giving the funeral parlor a fitting look for your loved one’s memorial service.

2. Consider Sports Themed Clothing for the Service

Consider using sports-themed clothing for the service. When choosing clothing for the deceased to wear for his or her burial, consider burying him or her with a sports-themed tie, clothing in the team’s colours or even in sports memorabilia.

Pallbearers and other participants in the service can follow a similar lead. For example, they can wear shirts, pants and ties in the team colors or can wear a team tie.

3. Choose a Sports Themed Coffin

Finally how about a picture coffin based on your loved ones favourite sport or team. Many soccer and rugby clubs have allowed their team colours to be used on coffins.

Some florists might even add special touches by adding ribbon, vases or flower pots in these colors or even with the team’s logo on them. These flowers will allow everyone to show their support while giving the funeral parlor a fitting look for your loved one’s memorial service.

We had two close family bereavements six weeks apart during lockdown in 2020. Alan James and the staff handled everything very sensitively and they were very helpful. Alan James is a very gracious man who knows exactly what to say to offer comfort. They made our loss both times a little more bearable.
