After Match Reaction
Away Colours (Colors)
Derby (a game between two neighbouring teams e.g. Liverpool vs Everton)
Halftime Oranges ( Halftime oranges, well it's a term used more in the lower leagues,
Sunday league, school/youth teams etc. Quite literally, in lower league
teams matches, they have oranges at halftime! I believe its more
'historic' than anything else - quite nostalgic! It has become a bit a
term that is used to accompany halftime commentary. For example, "The
referee has blown for halftime, and the players are off for some well
earned halftime oranges')

Halftime Pie
Home Colours (Colors)
Match Programme
Pre-Match Entertainment
Press Conference (e.g. when a new player is signed and then 'officially' introduced to the press)
