2019 Sports and Events Calendar

2019 world cup, sports and other events

What can we look forward to in 2019? Not only is it an odd year which means neither Olympics or FIFA World Cup, there are major changes ahead politically, for good or for bad, who knows? But what is certain is that there is a full card of sporting events to keep everyone on their toes for the next twelve months including other World Cups. This year brings us to end of the first two decades of what some of us still refer to as the new century.

There are a number of key dates that should go in your diary: from 30 May, the World Cup Cricket will take place in England. For those who love the sound of leather on willow, it continues for two whole months followed by the Ashes between Australia and England.

Liverpool hosts the Netball World Cup in July and the women’s FA Cup final is in May. Towards the end of the year, the Rugby Union World Cup will be held in Japan and November see the Para-athletics World Championships in Dubai. Then it’s Christmas.
