The biggest sports events coming up in 2022
The sports world never sleeps, and 2022 is no exception. There are many important and exciting events to look out for this year for sports fans, and as always, we’re all excited for what’s to come. If you want to take the excitement up an extra notch, make this the year you invite friends over for your wildest watch parties yet, bet on your favorite teams’ results – or whatever else you’ve always wanted to do, but have never gotten around to.
If you’re thinking of getting into betting, there are of course a few things to remember: Do your research, never bet with your gut, set a spending limit – and check out the market, e.g. by finding the best bonuses and making use of them. Betting.com is a great all-around site, whether you’re looking for expert picks, bet calculators, promo codes or anything else betting related.
Even if you don't want to bet, you can still find plenty of interesting information about your favorite sport. Being up-to-date will only make watching this year’s top sports events even more fun for you. So make sure to do your research – and read on for the most exciting sports events of the year.
Tennis – Wimbledon: June 27 to July 10
The Wimbledon Championships, the annual prestigious tennis tournament, will of course be returning in 2022. The tournament was canceled in 2020, and in 2021, the matches were played completely without spectators – but this year, we are all more than ready to enjoy the tournament. Hopefully, we’ll be able to do so under more normal circumstances without too many restrictions and with spectators to watch the games.
UEFA Women’s Euro: July 6 to 31
Another event you need to look out for is the Women’s Euro, which is returning this year after a little rescheduling. The event was meant to be held in 2021, but since the Summer Olympic Games were postponed from 2020 to 2021, the Women’s Euro was instead postponed to 2022. For this reason, we can now enjoy this incredible tournament this year.
If you’ve never watched women’s sports or think they are too boring, it’s time to change your mind and watch this year. There are many good teams playing, and it’s definitely worth a watch this summer.
Rugby League World Cup, England: October 15 to November 19
This event was also delayed because of COVID, but this year, we’re finally able to enjoy the Rugby League World Cup again! This international tournament is, of course, administered by the International Rugby League and will be a blast for both players and watchers.
Football World Cup: November 21 to December 18
An event many have waited for is finally going to happen this year: the FIFA World Cup. The World Cup has been postponed a few times, and due to the war in Ukraine, some rescheduling has happened in the qualification matches. This has yet not had an effect on the world cup scheduling, but if there are any changes in lineups, be sure to stay updated on the soccer section and other media to keep your betting game strong.
