Do you love travel? Do you love sport? If you’ve answered yes to both of these questions, your holidays in 2019 should really include both sport and travel.
If you are thinking about a sporting holiday, we have some good ideas for you.
Here is a list of top sports hospitality events to look forward to on your 2019 travels.
1. ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 – Lord’s, London
It’s been twenty years since the last world cup was hosted by England.
For the first time since 1999, the top national cricket teams from all around the world are coming to England to participate in this mighty competition.
If you are a fan of cricket, you won’t want to miss your chance to see the greatest teams on the planet in action.
Book your seats now and make sure you are at the iconic home of cricket, Lord’s, when your favourite side plays there.
Lord’s will host some of the greatest sides in the world, including a day night match between two of the tournament favourites, Australia and New Zealand.
- Pakistan vs South Africa – Saturday 23 June
- England vs Australia – Tuesday 25 June
- New Zealand vs Australia (D/N) – Saturday 29 June
- Pakistan V Bangladesh – Friday 5 July

The last match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, the tournament final, will be held at Lord’s and we can’t think of a better game to attend. If the idea intrigues you, get your hands on your tickets right now.
2. Baseball MLB London Series
Presented by the MLB and CSM Sport & Entertainment, this game is definitely going to be a great event for all baseball fans.
Why? Because it’s one of the fiercest rivalries not just in baseball, but in the whole world of sport. The New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox. These sides have competed against each other for over a century, a history that includes World Series matches, on-and-off field violence, and the infamous 90-year “Curse of the Bambino.”
Whether you’re a baseball fanatic, or this will be your first time at the ballpark, this is one game you definitely can’t afford to miss.
3. Horse Racing at the Cheltenham Racecourse
This is yet another addition to the list of Alternative Sports Hospitality Events. Being held from 12th March to 15th March it’s going to be one great experience.
The luxurious meals, lavish seating arrangement and all the other amenities provided at the lounges will make sure you are well entertained.
And if you demand luxury, you can pick the Ambassador club for yourself.
With a private balcony and totally unobstructed views this is hands down the best facility available at the Cheltenham Racecourse. Perfect treat for horse racing fans.
4. Ashes 2019 (Cricket)
If you’ve not had your fill of cricket with the 2019 Cricket World Cup, now’s your chance to really indulge.
A mere month after that tournament finishes at Lords, England take on Australia at Edgbaston for the first of five tests which will determine whether the Ashes will remain with holders Australia or be reclaimed by the hosts to even up the number of all-time wins at 33 each.
With five venues to choose from, this is a great chance to take in some sightseeing around England as the series travels from Birmingham to Leeds, Manchester and London.
5. Lawn Tennis Championships, Wimbledon
Tennis is a great sport and the whole world watches it. Especially the iconic Wimbledon tournament.
The championship will commence on July 1 and the finale will be played on July 14.
This means you can pick your days and visit the stadium to catch some live Lawn Tennis action.
Also, you can have the pleasure of enjoying private dining at the lawn.
2019 is going to be a great year for sports’ enthusiasts. And then if you love to travel too, then there are many opportunities to travel the UK and the whole world to get your sporting fix.
Just get into your travel shoes. Pack your bags. Plan your tickets and head off to enjoy some of the greatest sports events.
