4 Spectacular Sport Fixtures To See In 2020
16th January 2020

The year 2020 is full of exciting sports events you won’t want to miss out on, whether you’re a hard-core Formula One fan or an avid supporter of German football. There’s a multitude of sport-related fixtures organised every month of the year, spread out over a wide selection of European cities.

Below are just some of the sporting events happening this year in Europe. Which will you be attending?

F1 European Races

The dates and locations for the 2020 Formula One World Championship have been announced, so what’s stopping you from booking an F1 Grand Prix Holiday? It entails 22 events - the most ever held in a single season - starting on 15th March 2020 in Australia and finishing in Abu Dhabi on 29th November 2020. In between are nine European events including Amsterdam, Italy and the fan-favourite Monaco.

After 35 years of absence, the Dutch Grand Prix is returning to the schedule and will be held at Zandvoort, where fans will be able to watch Max Verstappen perform on his home turf. Although the majority of races are on permanent road courses, the Monaco Grand Prix will be on a street track along with three other races. If you fancy a one-of-a-kind experience, hire out a superyacht to watch the race from the water.

German Football Matches

If racing isn’t for you and you’d prefer to watch an exhilarating football match, travel over to Germany and enjoy a competitive game between two popular teams, in the Bundesliga football league.

Some highly anticipated games are Borussia Mönchengladbach Vs Borussia Dortmund at Borussia Park, on Saturday 7th March 2020 and, Fortuna Düsseldorf Vs FC Schalke 04 on Sunday 5th April 2020, at the Merkur Spiel-Arena.

During German Football matches you’ll be surrounded by locals waving German flags and tourists wanting to get a piece of the action. Afterwards, you can explore the beautiful city, whether it’s going up the Rhine Tower in Düsseldorf or exploring the Abteiberg Museum in Mönchengladbach.

Grand Prix Motorcycle Racing

The 2020 Moto GP calendar dates have been revealed and it starts on 8th March 2020 in Qatar and ends on 15th November 2020 in Valencia. It features 12 European events in between and many fans are most excited for the return of the Finnish Grand Prix on 12th July 2020 because it’s helped to create a 20-race calendar, the longest in Moto GP history.

The European fixtures are held in a wide range of cities including Le Mans in France, Brno in the Czech Republic and Spielberg in Austria. If you choose to travel to Austria, you’ll have the opportunity to watch the race in the Red Bull Ring that’s famous for hosting the Austrian Grand Prix, for 18 consecutive years.

FIA World Endurance Championship

If you’re unaware, the FIA World Endurance Championships are occurring this year. This event entails cars with multiple drivers, competing against others in an endurance race that could last several hours.

Season 8 crosses over 2019 and 2020, meaning only two European races are organised this year. The first is in Belgium at the Spa-Francorchamps race track and second is at Le Mans in France. Le Mans is a much bigger race track than Spa-Francorchamps with over 6 kilometres extra in length and 18 more turns– Which one will you choose to visit?

Monza, Italy is the only European fixture to be featured in season 9. It’s the first time this location has been used for the World Endurance Championships. Book a trip this October to see around 34 cars on the track at the same time, all testing the durability of their equipment and endurance of themselves.
