There are some sporting events that should not be missed. Year after year, they are held at iconic venues to capture the attention of people across the world. To ensure you never miss a moment, we are providing the six biggest US sporting events to add to your bucket list.
Indianapolis Motor Speedway
The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is the most attended sporting event in the world, with an average of 300,000 people booking tickets to watch the historic sporting event. The great thing is, the automobile racing circuit event never sells out, which means you can either stroll up and buy the tickets on the day, or can book them from ticketsales.com.
One must-see racing event you should not miss is, of course, the Kentucky Derby, which is held at Churchill Downs in Louisville every year. It is easily the most exciting two minutes of sport you can experience, and it provides a chance to dress up and enjoy many of the event’s traditions. However, it’s not only the horse racing event that builds excitement, as there are number of superb parties leading up to the iconic two-day event.
The Masters is one of the most anticipated golfing events in the world, with the finest golfers taking to the Augusta National Golf Club courses to participate in the major championship. However, you will have to book tickets fast to watch professional golfers navigate their way across the 18 holes, as they sell out quickly.
Do not miss a chance to watch the most talented tennis stars take to the court at the US Open. It is the modern version to the oldest tournament in the sport, the US National Championships, with the likes of Andy Murray, Roger Feder and Rafael Nadal participating at the event held at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. The two-week tennis tournament provides plenty of time to grab some tickets at one of the 22 courts. You could even buy a ground pass, which will allow you to explore the outer court; however, the pass is only sold within the first eight days of the tickets going on sale.
Tournament of Roses
The Rose Parade, also known as the Tournament of Roses, offers a parade of marching bands and flowered-covered floats, and is followed by the popular Rose Bowl College football game. Thousands of spectators attend the event, which has been coined “The Granddaddy of Them All”, and it is broadcast to millions of people across America each year.
US Open of Surfing
For a sport bursting with excitement and adrenaline, look no further than the US Open of Surfing. It provides a unique opportunity to watch the world’s finest surfers tackle jaw-dropping waves in Huntington Beach, California. Hundreds of thousands of spectators attend the event every year to watch the top surfers in action along 14 acres of beachfront, who each compete for the $310,000 purse.
