Whether your team is playing a normal game, or they’re headed to a championship, you want them to win. And maybe you have some things you do out of habit to “help” them win the game! For serious sports fans, if something works, you tend to stick to it. Whatever it takes to see your team take home the W! A lucky shirt, a game day ritual, a certain food, or some other lucky item, it’s a big part of our top sports rituals. And according to a new survey done by SWNS, these are the top sports rituals.

  • Kissing The Logo

  • Sitting In The Same Spot

    Do you have a lucky spot in your house? A certain spot on the couch or a certain chair.

  • Not Washing That Lucky Item of Clothing

    Again, let’s not wash away the good luck.  If it’s worked this long, why change it now?
