Imagine an application that allows neighbors to host gatherings in their homes for watching sports events. Some neighbors don't have subscriptions for certain matches while others do. The guests can be the ones who bring the food. Guests has to join through the app before they come and they should be in the neighborhood. Some events have maximum number of possible guests. Some events don't allow bringing food.

This is a a list view showing the current sports gatherings available to a user. Think of the following:

1- Is there anything you don't like about this view?
2- How would you improve it?
3- Try to think of the layout and components that you would use from the android components and design patterns.
