For those of us infected with the travel bug, it’s always good to have a focal point to an excursion. Whether it’s a once in a lifetime event like partaking in a solar eclipse, or even attending an exotic music festival, special events are always a good way to celebrate a country with the locals and enjoy the best of that region.

And that’s why sporting events frequently provide us with just the right kind of excuse to go and explore somewhere new. So with that in mind, here are some great sporting events around the world to tempt you to book your next trip!

Tour de Yorkshire

With the massive success of the Yorkshire leg of the Tour de France last year, the English county of Yorkshire has developed a whole new thirst for cycling that has led to this year’s Tour de Yorkshire event.

Taking place from 1 to 3 May, and with a range of typically Yorkshire locales such as Scarborough, York and Wakefield, it’s a great way to embrace the warmer weather and watch some top-class cycling activity. And whilst you’re waiting for the cyclists to make an appearance, you can also take part in Betway’s great gaming opportunities that will give you a chance to perfect your own playing strategies and maybe even win big!

But if you’re seeking something a little further afield, then why not go for that once in a lifetime Caribbean break and experience a celebration of cricket that is famous in this part of the world.

Barbados is one of the most beautiful islands in the planet, and from 1 to 5 May it hosts the highly competitive third test between England and the West Indies at the world famous Kensington Oval.

Spanish F1

For a little bit of Mediterranean glamour, then why not head to the luxurious Catalonian capital of Barcelona and witness the spectacle and the drama of the Spanish Grand Prix.

Taking place on 10 May at the prestigious Circuit de Catalunya, it is conveniently located to explore Barcelona’s legendary nightlife and beautiful architecture.

Champions League Final in Berlin



Berlin is increasingly becoming a hot spot for those seeking a stimulating and vibrant destination with its exciting blend of modernist and cosmopolitan attitudes.

So what better excuse to visit the German capital than by attending the UEFA Champions League final which takes place at the awe-inspiring Olympiastadion on 6 June. The competition is already getting fairly intense, so best book your ticket now!
