Bucket List Sports to Travel for Every Sport Fan Needs To Experience in 2018

If you are passionate about sports, whether it’s soccer, tennis, basketball, baseball or even golf, there are some activities that demand to be experienced. Make this year one to remember by checking out the following four bucket list sporting events to enjoy in 2018.

Sports to Travel For


Cheer on Your Home Nation at the FIFA World Cup 2018

At the top of your bucket list should be the FIFA World Cup 2018, as 64 games will take place in 11 venues across Russia, including in the capital of Moscow. You, therefore, need to book flights to the nation to soak in the atmosphere of their hotly-anticipated international soccer event. Tickets are still available for the many games on the calendar, but you’ll need to be quick to avoid disappointment. You can also learn all there is to know about the World Cup and other soccer events on the calendar by visiting Unibet. If you are a soccer fan this is one event in sports to travel for!



Attend the Popular U.S. Open (Golf)

Golf fans need to experience the US Open at least once in their lifetime, which takes place every summer at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club at The Hamptons. You’ll witness some of the finest talents in the sport take to the green, and you can also mingle with the local glitterati away from the golf course. The event is scheduled to place from June 11th to 17th, 2018. However, you’ll need to book your tickets and accommodation quickly, as it’s expected to sell out early.



Experience the Buzz and Prestige of Wimbledon

Wimbledon is one of four Grand Slam Tournaments and will take place from July 2nd to the 15th, 2018. In addition to being one of the oldest and most prestigious tennis events on the calendar, it is arguably one of the most popular with tennis fans. That’s probably because it is the only major grand slam that is still played on grass, and the English maintain a level of formality by preventing corporate sponsorships on the court. There’s also a strict dress code for all spectators, even the Queen, to create a sophisticated yet exciting sporting event.



Watch the World’s Best Tennis Pros at the U.S. Open

If you prefer a more relaxed approach to tennis, mark August 27th to September 11th in your 2018 calendar, as that’s when the U.S. Open will roll back around. The event will be held at Flushing Meadows in Queens, New York, and is a dedication to the players on the court. Net proceeds from the event will also be donated to promoting the development of tennis across the United States, with the aim of raising the tennis stars of tomorrow. So, you can feel a little sense of satisfaction that your money will go towards a worthy cause.

If you do plan to attend, you should consider booking a stay in Manhattan and taking the subway to Flushing Meadows. So, you can experience all the buzz of excitement of the Big Apple before attending the popular tennis event. It will offer the best of both worlds.
