Sports Events Calendar 2019

| May 17, 2019
The Epsom Derby
The Epsom Derby is the world’s premier classic for 3YO’s and a great betting race.

This year’s sporting calendar still has much more to offer; Formula 1 Grand Prix racing, the UEFA Champions League final, Tour de France, Cricket and Rugby Union World cups. Below are some of the major highlights;

1 June: Horse racing- Epsom Derby, England

The world’s premier horse racing classic is run at Epsom Downs in England and features the best 3YO’s in the UK and Ireland over a testing mile and half course. The favourite is last season’s champion 2YO, Too Darn Hot. Godolphin who won last year with Masar are hoping to repeat with Quorto, trained by Charlie Appleby, while Aiden O’Brien has the Futurity Stakes winner Anthony Van Dyck. The Derby is always a thrilling race with enormous value afforded the winner.

1 June: Football- Champions League final, Madrid

While the Champions League final is around the corner, it’s hard to believe that we won’t see any Spanish teams despite the final being held in Madrid. Real Madrid and Barcelona, both big teams in Spain won’t be gracing the occasion after being kicked out of the competition at different stages. The final will be between two English teams, Liverpool and Tottenham in what promises to be an exciting match. You can bet on both teams to score, though no one knows for sure who will take the title.

30 May-14 July: ICC Cricket World Cup-England and Wales

Eleven venues across Wales and England are set to host matches in the momentous English Cricket World Cup 2019. Who will it be this year? Cricket heavyweights such as Australia, India or even South Africa, have so much to prove against Sri Lanka, Pakistan and the West Indies who are formidable opponents of today. Owen Morgan’s England may also take the home advantage to yield great results.

12-14 July: Formula 1 – British Grand Prix, Silverstone

Will Lewis Hamilton once again profit from home advantage, in the scene set for another titanic struggle in Silverstone? Or will Bottas, Verstappen or Sebastian Vettel have something to say about it? And will this be another event where Ferrari goes toe-to-toe with Mercedes?

6-28 July: Cycling – Tour de France

The 21-stage Tour de France is arguably the most prestigious cycling event this year. Competitors will set off at Brussels and finish in the heart of Paris. Even in strong international fields, all-British subplots are becoming more popular. After Geraint Thomas triumphed over his Sky teammate Chris Froome last year, will Froome go out for what would be a record-equalling fifth Tour title? However, this may depend on what happens at the finish in Val Thorens on a penultimate day.

20 Sept-2 Nov: Rugby Union – World Cup, Japan

Without a doubt, this 2019 sports event is the most eagerly anticipated rugby event of recent times, with fans waiting to see whether the Northern hemisphere can overcome the dominant Southern hemisphere teams. Having beaten the New Zealand All Blacks twice in recent times, Six Nations Champions Ireland will have ambitions. However, there is an enigmatic challenge by Owen Farrell’s England team. Will Australia or Wales manage to ‘blindside’ opposition?

Sept-6 Oct: Athletics-World 28 Championships, Doha

We didn’t witness any major global competition in 2018, which means we could see new faces in Doha.  The 2019 World Championships provides the first chance to new athletes to make their mark with several young sprinters vying for the world’s fastest man tag. How will some Britain’s leading stars like Laura Muir, Dina Asher-Smith and others cope with exposure to the global stage?

Autumn 2019: American Football- NFL series, Wembley and Tottenham

A crowd of 85,870 attended last years’ game at Wembley Stadium, where Jacksonville Jaguars were defeated 24-18 by Philadelphia Eagles. Everybody is looking towards this years’ NFL London series. NFL confirmed that London would host the four regular-season matches, with two games staged at the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium and two more at Wembley stadium.
