With the 2022 calendar packed with top-class events, fans across the world will be clamouring to find information about what to watch.
To save you time and effort, we’ve scoured the schedule to come up with ten major events that you simply cannot afford to miss this year.
American Football – Super Bowl
All roads lead to Inglewood, California, on February 13 as the best two teams in the NFL battle to claim the prestigious Super Bowl title.
Green Bay Packers are amongst the favourites to lift the trophy, with Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills also strong contenders.
However, Tampa Bay Buccaneers could be tough to beat with legendary quarterback Tom Brady chasing his eighth NFL championship.
Soccer – Premier League
The list of Premier League champions reads like a who’s who of the biggest clubs in the world and the 2021/22 winners will be no different.
The clash between Manchester City and Liverpool on April 9 could go a long way to determining who lifts the trophy this time around.
Live streams are likely to be in big demand as the two contenders strive to deliver a decisive blow in this season’s Premier League title race. You may wish to make a bet on the football to make it that little bit more interesting (EPL중계)…
Soccer – Champions League Final
English clubs have been making hay in the Champions League in recent years, with four teams from the country reaching the final in the past three seasons.
Chelsea claimed the title last time around, defeating Man City 1-0 in Portugal. Both teams are through to the last 16 this year.
With Manchester United and Liverpool also progressing to the knockout stage, another all-English final in Russia on May 28 is a strong possibility.
Horse Racing – Royal Ascot
The eyes of the sporting world will be on Berkshire in June as the five-day Royal Ascot meeting headlines the summer horse racing programme in England.
The event always attracts the best horses, jockeys and trainers in the world, and generates a huge amount of revenue for online bookmakers.
Top Irish trainer Aidan O’Brien’s horses are always worth following at Royal Ascot, while leading US handler Wesley Ward’s runners should also be noted.
Golf – US Open
Golf takes centre stage in mid-June as the world’s best players take part in the US Open at the Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts.
This famous course last hosted the event in 1988 when Curtis Strange won the first of his back-to-back titles by defeating Nick Faldo in an 18-hole play-off.
Reigning champion Jon Rahm will be back to defend his crown in an event that will attract a massive live streaming audience worldwide.
Tennis – Wimbledon
The third Grand Slam of the season at Wimbledon gets underway in late June with Novak Djokovic chasing his fourth successive men’s singles title.
Another victory for Djokovic would see him draw level with Pete Sampras on seven wins in the event, just one behind Roger Federer.
The Swiss player has already indicated he is unlikely to play in the tournament and time is running out for the 40-year-old to add to his championship tally.
Athletics – World Championships
Given the country’s rich history in athletics, it comes as something of a surprise to discover that the US has never hosted the World Championships.
This will be rectified this year as the world’s best athletes take part in the 18th edition of the event in Eugene, Oregon, during July.
More than 200 nations will be represented in the World Championships, with the US favourites to top the medal table for the 14th time.
Horse Racing – Breeders’ Cup
The Breeders’ Cup World Championships has grown in importance in recent years, with the event attracting more international competitors than was once the case.
The two-day meeting at the start of November is live streamed around the world and generates massive interest in betting circles.
The highlight of the event is the Breeders’ Cup Classic, which has been won in the past by equine superstars such as Cigar, Curlin and American Pharoah.
Soccer – World Cup
The 2022 World Cup in Qatar will undoubtedly attract the biggest live streaming audience of any sporting event taking place over the next 12 months.
Reigning champions France may find it difficult to defend the title, with in-form Brazil strongly fancied to mount a serious challenge.
However, the team to watch could well be Germany, who look much improved under former Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick.
