If you are looking for an idea for a special occasion or as an excuse to have fun with family or friends, watching a great sporting event could be the answer. From horse racing and hockey to football and rugby; the excitement, rivalry and lively banter can help make the event a day to remember.
Whatever sport you may be in to, watching a live sports event can be a great experience for all ages. You are bound to get caught up in the electric atmosphere and the life-long rivalries and whether you win or lose, you will have plenty of fun. Hockey has become a popular sport to follow in the UK, with exciting events such as the Investec World League and Euro Hockey League happening throughout Europe. Watching the action on TV is fun too, but to experience the build-up, the excitement of every flick of the ball or shot to goal, a live event is the place to be!
Sport Can Be Theatrical Too
They don’t call Old Trafford the theatre of dreams for nothing; in fact football matches can be just as exciting, emotional and filled with adrenalin as any theatre performance. From the pre-match debates to the first post-game pint, a day out watching your favourite team is unforgettable. Singing along with the crowd, painting your face and wearing your team colours with pride is all part of the fun whether you are lucky enough to be watching the Premiership, the Champions League or even something more local.
Get Into The Heart Of The Scrum
Whether it is the RBS Six Nations Championships, the Heineken Cup or you are following the 2013 Lions Tour, a rugby match can be a great sporting event to watch live and a trip to watch a match at the home of English rugby, Twickenham, is an occasion you are unlikely to forget easily. Although the anticipation of watching your favourite team or national idols is enough to make any match an event, you could opt to make your day extra special by taking advantage of some amazing Twickenham hospitality packages. Enjoy some great food and drink, excellent service and the best view of the match, as well as some lively banter from former Rugby internationals, every Rugby lover’s dream.
Get Bowled Over, Not Out!
Or take to the square with an exciting Cricket event. From a number of tests and Twenty20 matches to some important One Day Internationals and this year’s Ashes, there are plenty of matches to choose from including some very emotionally charged local games! Cricket is the perfect event for groups to enjoy, especially in the summer months with the option of a beer or two as the game progresses. If you do fancy a venue that is a little more special enjoy the ultimate day out at Lords, Old Trafford in Manchester or even head down under to cheer on your favourites as England take on Australia once again at this year’s Ashes Tournament.
