Sports in the UK next year

12th September 2014

If you’re a sports fan, there are quite a few good reasons to come to the UK in 2015! England is hosting many world and European sports events next year, with tickets going on sale very soon for some events, if they're not available already. 

England has some of the best sporting venues in the world and what would be better than learning English and watching world-class sport during your stay?

1. EuroHockey Championships 2015

Hockey is a great sport to watch live, even if you’re not familiar with the game.  England’s men and women are at the top of their game and in Europe they face some of the strongest sides in the world, including World No.1 women’s side, The Netherlands.

Taking place at the new Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre at the Olympic Park in London in August 2015, tickets are on sale now.

2. Rugby World Cup 2015

The most important competition in the rugby calendar, the world cup will be taking place across England in Autumn 2015. England currently rank fourth in the world but as previous World Cup winners they will be pushing to regain the top spot with the home advantage.  Venues include the famous England home ground, Twickenham, as well as stadiums across the country.

3. Sailing World Cup 2015

Taking place in Weymouth, at the same location as the London 2012 Olympic games, will be the fourth stage of the six-stage world cup sailing series.  A chance to visit the south coast of England and enjoy the finest sailing in the world!

4. European Modern Pentathlon Championship 2015

The beautiful city of Bath will be hosting the first senior international modern pentathlon competition held in the UK since the London 2012 Olympic Games.  A great excuse to visit the city and watch some very talented sportsmen and women, this is the first opportunity for the British Pentathletes to qualify for the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic games.

5. World Canoe Slalom Championship 2015

The World Canoe Slalom Championships will take place at London 2012 venue, Lee Valley White Water Centre between 15-20 September 2015.  Ticket registration is open now for this popular sporting event, where Great Britain achieved much success in the London 2012 Olympic games.
