Top Events Coming in 2020 To Add To Your Calendar

The sporting and racing calendar is filling up, and there’s never been a better time to follow your favourites for the coming year. The variety of talent and performances we see every year makes for excellent watching and the immersive experience each event gives makes us feel like we’re there even if you’re just catching up on the TV.

At the beginning of the year, we saw a host of fantastic events take place including WWE Royal Rumble, Biathlon World Championships and the fight everyone has been talking about – Tyson Fury taking on Deontay Wilder competing for the WBC heavyweight title.

There are tons more to come too and some unmissable events that everyone should have on their calendar this year. Whether you head to see these in action or are watching from the comfort of your home, take a look at our handy guide, so you don’t miss anything.

14th March – Rugby Union: Final round of the Six Nations

The 2020 Guinness Six Nations goes on until 14th March. This is when all three fixtures of Round five take place on the same day. It’s also known as ‘Super Saturday’ and is not to be missed if you’re a big rugby fan. Many of the major TV channels including BBC and ITV, will be showing the games, and you may also be able to get tickets if you’re quick.

29th March – University Boat Race

The annual university boat race is a popular fixture in the British events calendar and sees Oxford and Cambridge University battle it out for the title. Cambridge has lifted the trophy for the past two years, so could we see Oxford step up the plate and take the lead this year? There’s a women’s and men’s event every year, and the riverbanks are full of cheer and competitive spirit, making it a great day out for the whole family.

4th April – Grand National Day

One of the biggest horseracing events comes to Aintree Racecourse again this April. Whether you’re an avid racing fan or like a flutter each year, the event is popular with everyone. Grand National 2020 is set to be as exciting as ever with 40 runners vying for the chance to lift the coveted trophy. As ever the odds are always something to watch out for and it’s still worth taking a punt on an outsider as your luck might just come in.

26th April – London Marathon

With thousands of people entering the ballot every year, this marathon is one of the most popular events on the calendar. From the professional runners taking part to the exciting records set among those getting to the finish line in fancy dress and comical outfits, there’s a range of interesting finishes. Previous races have seen records set, such as the fastest marathon racers dressing up as a post box and even an awareness ribbon in 2019.

23rd May – FA Cup Final

One of the most significant events in the football calendar is the FA Cup Final. It’s all to play for to compete in front of the glorious audience at The Emirates stadium. Plus you can hedge your bets on who’s likely to be there this May.

12th June – 12th July – Euro 2020

So we’ve already had the qualifier stage draws and play-offs, so in June we see the Euro 2020 matches kick-off. This event is always a must-watch, and each year sees a wealth of talent play over the course of the month. The final will be held at Wembley Stadium on 12th July, and it’s set to be a fantastic event.

29th June – 12th July – Wimbledon

Wimbledon is always a show-stopping event, and among the likes of Djokovic and Federer, there are a number of new names coming into the fold. One to watch out for is Coco Gauff who secured her place in the final 16 last year at just 15 years old. This year, she’ll undoubtedly be hot on the heels of the tennis elite.

19th July – British Grand Prix at Silverstone

The Grand Prix draws fans from across the globe, and none more so than at the British leg of the races. This event is a fun-packed racing weekend with the main event on 19th July. You can buy tickets for two or three days and enjoy a host of entertainment packages and tons of activities for the whole family.

24th July – 9th August - Olympic Games

The Olympics is a massive event on the sporting calendar, and this year is no different. Its location, though, is stimulating some conversation to the recent health news. However, as yet, it is still going ahead in Tokyo. This year we see a myriad of new talent take centre stage, and a host of new sports as well, including Baseball, Karate, Skateboarding, and Surfing.

6th – 13th September – Tour of Britain

The Tour of Britain always draws enormous crowds, and due to its different stages, there’s a host of places you can watch the action (even for a split second!). Starting in Cornwall on 6th September, riders will make the 170 km journey through different regions including Devon, Cumbria, and Aberdeenshire. It’s the UK’s biggest bike race and is a fun event for cycling whether you’re an enthusiast or a hobbyist. What’s more, it’s free to watch along the route, and you even place your bets on the winner for a bit of healthy competition.

The sporting and non-sporting event calendar is packed with events this year, and you can book tickets to your favourites or catch up in the comfort of your living room. Alongside the events on home turf, there’s also plenty of international ones taking place too, including the Arctic Race of Norway, Speedway Grand Prix, Ice Hockey World Championships, and the Davis Cup, to name a few. Whether you love sports or fancy having a flutter on your favourites, there’s a host of activities and events to choose from. So don’t forget to add these to your calendar this year.
