The UK is one of the world’s top sporting destinations, playing host to some of the biggest sporting events on the planet. Sport fanatics from all over the globe travel to take in myriad sporting fixtures events.

Sport at its best has a unique ability to bring people together and spectators from all over can unite whilst watching an event. Here is a look at a quartet of the UK’s greatest sporting events.

NFL at Wembley

Since 2007, Wembley Stadium has hosted at least one American Football game every year with great success. In 2016, three NFL fixtures will be held at the iconic venue while, the home of English rugby, Twickenham, will play home to a further match as the International Series expands. The NFL is growing on this side of the Atlantic and it may not be too long before London has its very own American Football franchise.

The Grand National Meeting

Horse racing is, of course, one of the most popular sports in the UK and thousands of fans travel to Aintree every year for the Grand National. Arguably the greatest race in the sport sees a large proportion of the British public place a bet on what is a world famous event. In 2016, that will be no different.

In 2015, America’s Zach Johnson kept his cool to beat young compatriot Jordan Spieth to the title and you can bet that both will be in the mix in 2016 too. In 2016, the event graces the hallowed links at Royal Troon Golf Club in Ayrshire in Scotland and you can place your bet with Coral.

Manchester United at Old Trafford

Manchester United are perhaps the most famous football club in the world and fans travel from all over the planet to Old Trafford to watch the Red Devils compete against the rest of the Premier League week in week out.
