The Biggest Sporting Events In The USA This Year

The sporting calendar in the US is one of the most jam-packed in the world, and no country does massive events quite like us.

From Super Bowl Halftime shows to prestigious green jackets, the US really does sport in style and across 2019 that’s going to be no different.

We’ve already seen Tom Brady and the Patriots lift the Super Bowl and there’s plenty more to come across the next nine months.

But what are the events we should be tuning into, no matter where we are in the world? Here’s our guide to the major sporting events for the remainder of 2019…

March Madness

Nowhere does college sport like in the US and March Madness is one of the most exciting times of the year in basketball.

It’s enjoyed all over the world as fans try to pick up a March Madness live stream and enjoy the next generation of NBA stars etch themselves into their colleges folklore.

The tournament lasts until the beginning of April and involves 68 different colleges. The fun is in picking your sides to win and really does capture the world, with even the likes of Barack Obama getting involved.

The likes of Michael Jordan, Carmelo Anthony and Larry Bird all played in the tournament in their college days, so there’s plenty of quality on offer as well as excitement.

The Masters

The Masters is also just a few weeks away and is the first of the majors to arrive in a year.

The sporting world’s eyes are on Augusta at this time every year as the world’s top stars battle it out for the infamous green jacket.

Rory McIlroy is the favourite to win, with American native Dustin Johnson also one of those tipped to challenge.

It’s a tournament that’s been played since 1934 and continues to be one of the most important, and most watched, tournaments in sport.

Anthony Joshua v Jarrell Miller

June 1 will welcome Heavyweight Champion of the World Anthony Joshua to Madison Square Garden, and while his opponent may not be particularly formidable, it could be a landmark moment.

Joshua has only fought on the UK so far and his introduction to the US market could revitalise the division further and start a series of mega fights over the coming years.

Deontay Wilder is on Joshua’s hitlist, which could be a real Las Vegas superfight, while it could also prompt Tyson Fury into securing a fight with AJ on US soil.

While Joshua is a hot favourite, Jarrell Miller has been keen to have his say in press conferences so far, which at the very least will ramp up the entertainment come fight night.

Indianapolis 500

The Indy 500 welcomes hundreds of thousands of fans to Indiana every Memorial Day weekend and is a must-watch on the sporting calendar.

It’s been held since 1911 and always provides plenty of thrills and spills and with just a few weeks until race day, it’s certainly time to start thinking about your favourites.

NBA Finals

NBA Finals is also just around the corner, with a number of teams fighting to finish in the playoffs and go all the way.

The Golden State Warriors are a clear favourite, with Kevin Durant in fine form going into the play-offs.

The Toronto Raptors, Milwaukee Bucks and Houston Rockets are also among the favourites to win the championship.

Stanley Cup

The Stanley Cup falls at a similar time of year to the NBA Finals with the playoffs starting on April 10 and finishing in June.

The Tampa Bay Lightning are looking good this season and could win only their second Stanley Cup.

San Jose Sharks and the Washington Capitals are hot on their heels though in what will be an exciting couple of months in the NHL.

World Series

The baseball season has just got underway in the USA, with the regular season running until the end of September.

From then on it’s all about the World Series, with postseason running throughout October.

That climaxes on October 20, in what is a landmark year for Major League Baseball.

Professional baseball is celebrating its 150th anniversary and there will be undoubtedly special events and moments held across the season.
