With 2020 being a bit of a let down for us all in many ways I think we all need that pick me up and a reason to get together all the more in 2021, so let’s take a look at what sporting events are coming up for us so we can plan our calendar and get diaries filled! Many of us may like having a pint, while watching football or live sports at pubs like The Cornershop Bar, a Shoreditch pub. If you are one of them, then you will need to book your place early during the sports events in 2021 as it will be very popular.
The Paralympic Games, the Olympic and Euro 2020 and a Lion’s tour of South Africa are just a few which are due to bless our screens for the nation to see over the preceding months to come. Fingers crossed the stadiums can be filled and friends can reunite but either way we can watch it from home and still enjoy the many tournaments and sporting revelations.
Let’s talk Wimbledon Championships, a popular event for many whereby Pimm’s are usually enjoyed court side in the summer months, this makes a return on the 28th June finishing with the men’s final on the 11th July, this is sure to be a great watch and if you can get down to the real thing in London and make a day of it.
This follows on nicely to the Euro’s, which begins on the 11th June, with a total of 51 matches to be played in 12 cities around Europe and a highlight being England hosting Scotland at Wembley. A fantastic few weeks of football in the peak of summer which is surely not something to be missed.
If speed is your thing then ensure you pencil in the British Formula 1 Grand Prix, where Lewis Hamilton looks to maintain his title for the 8th time which takes place on Sunday the 18th July at Royal St George’s, the same day the Tour de France will also take place, so choose wisely or flicker through both, either way it’s a Sunday of fun!
Now this is where it gets better! Just a short five days later in Tokyo, the opening ceremony of the 32nd Olympic Games will begin and athletes from all over the world will look to seek out gold medals from various sports, you don’t want to miss this!
Whilst this is in full swing, the Rugby Union’s British and Irish Lions will take on world champions South Africa in a three-test series for the first time since 1997.
If Rugby isn’t your thing there really is something for everyone!
Cricket lovers can also enjoy the Hundred Tournament, the World Test championship Final, one day and T20 matches and a five-Test home series against India, plenty to keep you occupied!
Finally if Golf’s your thing don’t miss out on the Solheim cup and Ryder Cup, and we’d be crazy not to mention one of the biggest moments in boxing history which see’s British rivals Joshua and Fury take to the ring to decide the heavy weight champion of the world, date yet to be confirmed!
Looks like it’s set to be a fantastic year of sport for everyone to enjoy so get your diaries filled!
