There have already been some amazing sporting events this year. The Cheltenham Festival and the Grand National Meeting did not disappoint, with the impressive Gordon Elliott-trained Tiger Roll winning races at both meets. Patrick Reed won the Masters, after Rory Mcilroy had a final day to forget about! And the Formula 1 season has gotten off to an exciting and dramatic start. But, the year is still young, and there are plenty of amazing sporting events left to see. Let’s take a look at them in further detail…
Tony Bellew vs David Haye, 5th May
We don’t have long to go until the big rematch between Tony Bellew and David Haye. When the pair last met at the O2, Tony Bellew caused a huge upset, although Haye did suffer an injury in the middle of the fight, which has left fight fans questioning what the outcome would have been otherwise. On May 5th, we will all find out.
Royal Ascot, 19 – 23rd June
The flat season is starting to get underway, and there is no better meeting than Royal Ascot. Unfortunately, the Australian super mare Winx won’t be in attendance. However, this won’t stop the meet from being one to remember.
Wimbledon, 2nd – 15th July
Once you have come down from the high of Royal Ascot, Wimbledon brings some excitement to the table. Will reigning champions Roger Federer and Garbiñe Muguruza be able to hold onto their titles? If you are thinking about going to the tennis, you should look into Wimbledon hospitality. There are some great packages that will enhance your overall experience.
Rolex British Grand Prix, 5 – 8th July
The British Grand Prix also takes place in July, which is proving to be a busy month for sports fans. The season has already gotten off to a dramatic start, with crashes and safety cars having a major impact on the outcome of the races. We are yet to see Lewis Hamilton cross the chequered line first, but there will be plenty of Brits hoping he does on July 8th.
Ryder Cup, 28 – 30th September
The Masters was as thrilling as ever, and if you want to get your golf fix, the Ryder Cup is a good opportunity to do so. This year it is going to be played in Paris. The only other time the Ryder Cup was played in Europe was in 1997, and we won, so let’s hope that’s a good omen!
So there you have it: some of the best sporting events to attend in 2018. If you can make it to one of the occasions mentioned above, you are bound to have a great time. However, watching them on television is always a good second option!
