    Sporting Spectacles: This Summer’s Unmissable Events

    Here are a few of the key dates for your sporting calendar this summer, as well as some inspiration for how you can experience the action
    30 May, 2024

    The weather may not always suggest it but summer is just around the corner and with it comes a schedule of enticing and enthralling world-class sporting events. Here are four that we feel are absolutely unmissable.

    Euro 2024: 14th June to 14th July

    A bountiful summer of sport kicks off in June with the UEFA European Football Championships – Euro 2024. Germany plays host this time around and will be looking to restore some pride having failed to advance past the group stages in two of the three previous major tournaments.

    England and Scotland are the only two teams representing the Home Nations in Germany, with Scotland facing the hosts in the tournament’s opening fixture. England are considered a pre-tournament favourite and will look to go one better than the last Euros when they lost on penalties to Italy in the final.

    Take a look at our recent Insight on Berlin for some more information on the tournament, as well as some inspiration for what to do in the country’s capital.

    Wimbledon: 1st to 14th of July

    An absolute stalwart of the international sporting calendar, the Wimbledon Championships are historic, iconic and electrifying. Having first been held in 1877, it’s the oldest of the four tennis majors and still honours many of its original traditions.

    Last year the men’s singles was won in dramatic and surprising circumstances by the Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz who defeated Novak Djokovic in a thrilling five sets, ultimately denying the Serb a season Grand Slam. In this summer’s ladies’ event, Markéta Vondroušová is aiming to defend her first-ever grand slam win, having defeated Ons Jabeur in straight sets last year.

    Have a read of our insight into 2024’s four tennis Grand Slams here.

    The Open: 18th to 21st July:

    If Wimbledon is the epitome of tennis prestige then The Open is arguably golf’s equivalent. The 152nd Open tees off in July at Royal Troon for the 10th time in the course’s 146-year history. Located on Scotland’s beautiful West Coast, Royal Troon is revered worldwide and is regarded as one of the best links courses on the planet.

    Within the challenging 18 holes this year, golfers will be teeing up to play the longest hole in Open history, a Par 5 which will measure a monstrous 623 yards. Ironically, players may then be required to play the shortest hole in Open history just two holes later, as event organisers have announced that the 123-yard 8th hole, named the ‘Postage Stamp’, could be reduced to a mere 99 yards for one of the rounds if the weather permits.

    The world of golf currently sits at a fascinating crossroads, which you can read all about here, only serving to magnify the interest and intensity of its major events.

    2024 Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games: 26th July to 11th August and 28th August to 8th September

    The pinnacle of sporting performance for many athletes, the Olympic and Paralympic Games, will entertain millions throughout July, August and September this summer. Inspired by the Games of Ancient Greece, the modern Olympic Movement has aimed to contribute to a better world since the first Modern Olympics were held in 1896.

    The core values of Olympism are Excellence, Friendship and Respect and every four years the International Olympic Committee (IOC) aims to encompass these virtues while reflecting the priorities and moods of wider sport and society.

    In 2024 we return to Paris, the host of the second-ever Modern Olympics, which will become only the second city to host three Summer Olympic Games, behind London. Event organisers are aiming to set an example for future sporting events by focusing on innovation, inclusivity and youth. One way of accomplishing this is through the introduction of new sports, including breakdancing, that are reflective of the youthful and diverse direction the IOC is travelling.

    As a luxury lifestyle concierge service, we are specialists at designing bespoke experiences for our high-net-worth clients. If you’d like us to put together a summer itinerary of sport and travel that’s unique to your individual needs, please get in touch with us here.
