The new year brings new goals and new opportunities for all of us. You know what else it brings? Exciting new sporting events that we’re all looking forward to. With the year just getting started, we’ve compiled a list of 2020 sporting events that we feel are the most anticipated events of the year. What sporting event are you looking forward to the most in 2020? With the help of SportsDomainLAB we check out some of the most thrilling sports events to come. Let us know if any of these events crack your top 5.
Super Bowl 2020
This NFL season was definitely one of the most competitive ones we’ve seen in quite some time. There are only 8 teams left, and Tom Brandy and his New England Patriots are not one of them (weird, right?). What makes Super Bowl LIV 2020 so exciting is the fact that there is no clear cut favorite. Many would say that this season was the beginning of a new era with young new stars taking the NFL by storm.
You’ve got players who were once considered emerging stars like Lamar Jackson, Patrick Mahomes, Deshaun Watson and Jimmy Garoppolo, to now being the faces of the NFL. The possible Super Bowl matchups appear to be endless. Could we see the Ravens take on the 49ers in the Super Bowl? How about Seattle take on Kansas City? Or maybe the Texans vs. Vikings? See, I told you this was exciting!
NBA 2020 Finals
Just like the NFL, this year’s NBA season also does not have a clear-cut favorite. Gone are the Golden State Warriors versus LeBron James NBA Finals matchups. Not only do you have both the Lakers and the Clippers battling it out in LA, but you also have several other Western Conference teams such as the Nuggets, Rockets and Jazz that you should not be sleeping on.
Also, can you name any other season where there were so many good teams in the Eastern Conference? Giannis and his Bucks currently hold the top spot, but teams from 2 through 6 are virtually eye-to-eye when it comes to their level of talent. We have no idea who is coming out of the West and East this year, but that’s exactly what makes this year’s NBA Finals so special.
Tokyo 2020 Olympics
This year’s Olympic games will be hosted by Tokyo. Japan’s capital has not hosted the Olympics since 1964. Looking to make a good impression, the Tokyo Olympic’s focal point will be held at Tokyo’s brand new national stadium. It is being reported that close to 11,000 athletes from all over the globe will be participating at this year’s Olympic games. A total of 339 medals in 33 sports will be up for grabs. The 2020 Olympics will also introduce new sports such as baseball, karate, skateboarding and surfing. No matter what your preference of sports is, the Olympics will surely have you covered.
Euro 2020 Soccer Cup
Happening this Spring/Summer over a span of a month, the Euro 2020 is set to be the 16th European Championship. It will be held in 12 countries to mark the competition’s 60th anniversary, with the final being held in London. Portugal (holders) are placed in the same group as Germany and the World Cup champions France, while four qualifiers have yet to be decided through the Nations League playoffs that will be taking place in March. Countries such as England, Belgium, France and the Netherlands are the current favorites, but we all know that once the ball gets rolling, anything can happen and upsets are bound to happen.
Tour De France 2020
Tour De France is without a doubt the biggest cycling event of the year. Taking place from June 27th to July 19th, this year’s event will start off in Nice for the first time since 1981 (second time ever). A total of 3,470 kilometers will be covered over the 21 stages. Last time out, Colombia’s Egan Bernal became the youngest winner of the Tour since 1909. This year his team, Team Ineos, are once again expected to be a favorite.
