With one in four Americans watching over five hours of sport a week, it’s easy to see why so many of us love engaging.
Not only do sports provide great entertainment, but they bring a real sense of support and community.
Wondering what summer events to get hooked on? These sporting events are sure to be great, so make sure you tune in this year.
1. FIFA Women’s World Cup
The FIFA Women’s World Cup features some of the best female soccer players ever and it’s coming this summer. Although it doesn’t carry the same interest as the men’s World Cup, that doesn’t mean it’s not worth watching.
Pick a country out of thirty-two nations to support or just strap in and enjoy the ride.
2. NBA Finals
More of a basketball fan than soccer? The NBA Finals are happening this summer and they’re sure to be one of the most interesting sporting events. There are some amazing players competing, including the famous LeBron James, and there’s plenty of drama and story behind each match that will give you someone to root for.
3. The Tour de France
If you assume you aren’t into cycling and have never tuned into the Tour de France, it’s time to change that.
It’s not just entertaining for Europeans. This very difficult bike race will have you on the edge of your seat, even if there’s no one, in particular, that you want to win.
Don’t just stick to the USA when it comes to 2022 sporting events — look around the world, or you’ll be missing out on some good ones.
Happening over June and July, Wimbledon is another place to look outside of the USA. It sees some of the best tennis players in the world go against each other, and it can be pretty intense.
It’s also a big event in and of itself if you’re lucky enough to go and make a trip out of the whole thing.
5. The US Open
If you’d rather keep it closer to home when it comes to tennis, the US Open is also happening this summer. At the end of August, it’ll take place in New York City.
Since it’s closer, you can also find sport tickets online if you’d rather see things in person.
6. Commonwealth Games
If you’d rather have some variety at your sporting events, the Commonwealth Games is happening in England this summer. They’ll include a whole host of things, from field hockey to aquatic sports, so there’s something for everything.
Enjoy These Summer Sporting Events
Whether you want to watch sports from the comfort of your home or find tickets and attend them in person, these sporting events are sure to be the highlight of the summer. Find something for you or tune into them all if you’re a serious enthusiast.
