A Fall Sports Guide for Soccer Parents: Comparing the Best Chairs for Soccer Games

A Fall Sports Guide for Soccer Parents: Comparing the Best Chairs for Soccer Games - Gobi Heat

As a soccer parent, you have your hands full. Depending on the day and the team, you might be the cheerleader, uniform manager, or weather consultant.

No matter the role you must play before the game, comfort is king when the time comes to spectate. In this article, we’ll break down the most critical aspects of your perfect throne. Let's get the ball rolling!

What Features Do the Best Soccer Chairs Have in Common?

When looking at sports chairs, there are quite a few things you need to consider. Everyone is different, so evaluate your purchase based on your preferences.

  • Portability - Forget heavy-duty transportation! Traveling light is key for any parent. We're talking about a soccer mom chair that can be folded up and stored away in its carrying case faster than your little one can say "GOAL!" A chair that's as collapsible as a magic trick and as portable as a pro traveler.
  • Comfort - A comfy chair is like a good footrest; it supports you unconditionally. Ideally, your soccer chair can provide high-quality comfort that rivals a beloved reclining lounge chair. Imagine settling into a heavenly cloud enveloping you, turning every soccer game into a divine experience.
  • Convenience - These days, chairs provide more utility than simple comfort. Look for modern features that complement your lifestyle when at the game. Some chairs include side tables for your coffee, or even built-in coolers to stock sports drinks and water bottles. Some chairs even provide phone charging capabilities.
  • Durability - As a soccer parent, you may have to face the elements—extreme cold, surprisingly strong winds, and torrential rain, to name a few. Since this chair will be outside a lot, you must choose materials that will survive and thrive. You might even consider investing in a heavy-duty steel frame.
  • Support and Stability - Sure, comfort is essential, but so is good posture. Great chairs are ergonomically designed to help you stay alert during a game without everything feeling too rigid. Armrests should sit comfortably, and backrests should support your frame.

Best Chairs for  Soccer Games

Terrain Heated Camping Chair

Gobi Heat Terrain Heated Camping Chair for Soccer Games

Introducing your new sideline pal! This Terrain Heated Camping Chair is no ordinary folding chair. In fact, it checks every box listed above.

For starters, it is lightweight, foldable, and comes with a carrying bag, making it easy to transport. It is also remarkably comfortable thanks to its high-quality materials. With a robust structure that stands firm like a rock, it’s built with heavy-duty, weather-resistant material ready to endure anything from downpours to desert disasters.

Of course, one of the most important features is the battery-powered heat, which will quickly become your best friend in the colder months of a soccer season. 

There are a ton of reasons you should get a heated chair for winter activities. At a high level, the Terrain Heated Camping Chair transforms chilly fall soccer games into a toasty haven. It works like your favorite beach chair on warm days, but when the chill sets in, it becomes your fireplace.

Overall, the Terrain Heated Camping Chair pairs perfectly with fall sports for kids—it’s portable, durable, and comfortable.

Chaheati 7V Battery Heated Camping Chair

The Chaheati 7V Battery Heated Camping Chair

Another option on the market is the Chaheati 7V Battery Heated Camping Chair. It boasts two heat zones, one on the back and another on the seat, powered by a 7.4V battery with three adjustable heat settings. This chair promises warmth and comfort across a range of temperatures — from 100°F to 125°F — for 2.5 to 8 hours, depending on the chosen heat setting.

However, compared to the Gobi Heat Terrain Heated Camping Chair, it falls short in a few areas. For starters, it lacks the heavy-duty material construction of the Gobi chair, potentially making it less weather-resistant. Plus, many of its promoted differentiators, such as side pockets and portable carrying bag, are also present in the Terrain Heated Camping Chair. 

Perhaps most importantly, the Terrain Heated Camping Chair’s battery life ranges between 4.5 to 9 hours, considerably longer than the Chaheati. What's more, the heat settings on the Terrain Heated Camping Chair range from a low of 113°F to 131°F. This means you can use a lower setting on an already more efficient battery life and achieve the same warmth and comfort. 

Since these two chairs boast a similar price point, the Gobi Heat Terrain Heated Camping Chair may be of more value to you. 

Kings Trek Heated Camping Chair

The King Trek Heated Camping Chair

The Kings Trek Heated Camping Chair provides an alternative for those seeking a more affordable heated camping chair. It boasts three adjustable heat settings with dual-control buttons for personalized comfort.

Kings Trek promotes its chair as a multi-season solution, but the battery life under the highest heat setting only provides up to 3 hours of warmth. In comparison, the Gobi Heated Terrain Camping Chair ensures longer-lasting heat, maximizing comfort during those chilly outdoor experiences.

In terms of portability, both chairs are designed with convenience in mind, as they can easily fold into their accompanying carrying bags. However, the Gobi chair weighs about 11 lbs. while the Kings Trek weighs 16.9 lbs., with Gobi offering an advantage for those who prioritize lightweight equipment.

The Kings Trek Heated Camping Chair does not quite measure up to the superior comfort, heating capability, and durability offered by the Gobi Heat Terrain Heated Camping Chair. Ultimately, the decision will depend on whether you value price savings over the premium features and longevity of the product.


Choosing the perfect sports chair as a soccer parent requires considering a range of factors, from portability and comfort to convenience, material, and support. Your ideal chair should feel as effortless to transport as it is to fold away.

It should offer high-quality comfort, giving you a cloud-like sensation during every game. Modern features like side tables, built-in coolers, and even phone chargers could add that extra convenience you didn't know you needed.

Remember, your chair should brave the elements right along with you, so consider heavy-duty materials and a sturdy steel frame for durability.

And lastly, the best chair will give you the right blend of comfort and support, promoting good posture while ensuring you stay focused on the game. 

Here's to finding your perfect sideline companion and enjoying every soccer match to the fullest!
