Four Prestigious Sporting Events To Attend in 2022

February 5, 2022 Share

SPORTING events are a fantastic reason to book a holiday. Following your national team’s progress through a tournament, going to see your favourite athletes in action, or catching a glimpse of the roaring engine of your favourite F1 team – all while having the opportunity to explore a new city or country.

These four sporting events happening across the globe in 2022 will display some of the finest elite athletes in the world doing what they do best. Here’s all the information you need before booking your ticket.

Widely regarded as the most prestigious race in the motorsports calendar, the Monaco Grand Prix sees the world’s rich and famous descend on the tiny city-state on the French Riviera. As much a social occasion as it is a sporting event, Monaco becomes the site of glamourous galas and superyacht parties, with the terraces littered with A-list film stars, artists, models, designers and many more.

At the 2022 Monaco Grand Prix, most grandstand tickets on Friday are priced at €110. Guests can also hang out in the Beau Rivage penthouse for €175. Ticket prices increase to an average of €200 on Saturday and double again to €400 on race day. Weekend packages come in at a lot more depending on how much you’re willing to spend. Tickets are available here.

Some might say the Champions League is the biggest tournament in football these days due to its financial ramifications, but purists will argue that there is no greater achievement in sport than your national team winning the world cup.

Located on the Persian Gulf, Qatar sees an average high temperature of 108F (42 °C) in the summer, and temperatures close to 123F (50°C) have been recorded in the capital Doha, so this world cup will take place in winter when the heat cools down a little.

Money is not much of an issue for oil-rich Qatar as the small peninsula country has reportedly spent $190 billion on eight stadiums within 48 miles of each other, many with advanced cooling technology inside as even in winter the heat will be an issue.

The first ticket sales started with a random selection draw on 19 January 2022, but more are available via this link.

Wimbledon | 27th June – 10th July

One of the most sought-after sporting events of the year, the 135th Wimbledon Championships returns from its absence last year due to the pandemic. Novak Djokovic is the defending men’s singles champion from the 2020 tournament, while Australia’s Ashleigh Barty won the ladies’ singles as matches were held with reduced crowd capacities. Watch out for British 19-year-old Emma Raducanu this year too, the reigning US Open champion.

This year will be slightly different as there will be no public ballot for tickets, as a roll-on for people who had tickets in 2020 will ensure they get first access. All other tickets will be available for public purchase via the Queue and Ticket Resale. Prices vary depending on the day and court selected, ranging from £8 for a final day ground pass to £240 for access to centre court for the finals on 9 and 10 July.

The Masters | 4th April – 10th April

The 86th edition of the Masters in Augusta, Georgia, sees golf’s top male professionals compete for the most sought-after prize in the sport. Current champion Hideki Matsuyama will attempt to become just the fourth player to successfully defend the Green Jacket, while Rory McIlroy is one to watch as he aims to complete Golf’s career grand slam. It’s currently not clear whether Tiger Woods is far enough along in his recovery to play at the venue where he won five times.

Practice Rounds Tickets and a limited number of Daily Tournament Tickets are available this year and can be found via this link.
