When it comes to major sporting events, 2016 is set to be an incredible year with something for fans of all sports to look forward to. There will be sporting events taking place in destinations around the world and if you plan to travel to them you should make sure you get yourself organised as early on as possible. Major events such as the ones taking place this year attract huge crowds from around the world, so the earlier you can get yourself organised the more easily you can just sit back and look forward to being there in person.


There are various things that you will need to sort out depending on the location of the event you are planning to go and see. If you have to travel abroad, you need to sort out your flights and transfers and even if the event is on home ground you still need to look at your accommodation options if you plan to stay over as well as transportation. Both travel and accommodation can get booked up very early for major sports events, so the earlier you get everything booked the easier it will be.

3 key events you might want to attend

This year will be a tremendous one for sports fans, as there is so much going on in countries all around the world. Of course, not everyone will be able to attend these events in person but many will still be heading to a betting site in order to have a flutter on the outcome. Even if you are travelling to one of these events, you can still try a new betting site in order to stay abreast of what’s going on while you are travelling or in your hotel as well as to place a bet on your favourites. Betway offers a wealth of information as well as odds and betting facilities, so you can simply place bets on your mobile device and get on with enjoying the sporting action.

If you enjoy horseracing, then one event you can look forward to is the famous Cheltenham Festival, which takes place at the Cheltenham Racecourse in the UK. This event will take place between 15th and 18th March 2016 and has something for everyone. In addition to the races you can enjoy a host of entertainment including some great bands and the St. Patrick’s Thursday celebrations. There are plenty of accommodation options close by to suit a variety of different budgets and requirements. Hotels such as No 38 The Park, the Clarence Court Hotel, and Cotswold Grange Hotel are all within 1.2 miles of the racecourse, so you will be able to get there with ease.

Football fans will be chomping at the bit at the moment, as they look forward to the excitement of Euro 2016. The event takes place in venues and stadiums all around France, so you will need to work out which teams you want to see and make your booking accordingly. No matter which stadium you are travelling to, you will find plenty of hotels to choose from but you do need to book early, as fans will be flocking to this event from all around the world. The event kicks off in June 2016 in Paris where France will take on Romania

Finally, a major event that is not to be missed is the Olympics, which will be taking place in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil this year. The games will begin on 5th August 2016 and there is no doubt that millions of people around the globe will be glued to their TV sets watching the event with bated breath. Those lucky enough to be attending in person will have plenty to look forward to in addition to enjoying the beauty and glorious climate of Brazil. Accommodation options in this vibrant city will be plentiful but once again early booking is vital if you don’t want to miss out.
