But before we get to it, let’s take a quick look at the biggest 2023 international sporting events.

Early year with tennis, rugby and cricket

The beginning of the year – January through March – is already packed with some of the UK’s favourite sporting events. The year will open up with the first of the four tennis Grand Slams, followed by Six Nations men’s rugby championship on 4th of February and ICC Women’s T20 cricket World Cup on 9th of February in South Africa.

Australian Open

The year kicks off with one of the prestigious tennis tournaments, the Australian Open in Melbourne, taking place on 16th of January. The tournament is the first of the four Grand Slam events taking place throughout the year – the French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open. Running for 117 years, the AO started off as the Australasian championships, evolving into the Australian Open and becoming one of the biggest sporting events in the Southern Hemisphere. To top it off, the Australian Open is the highest attended Grand Slam event – with more than 812,000 people attending the 2020 tournament.

With the recent retirement of two of the world’s most famous names in tennis – Serena Williams and Roger Federer – this upcoming year of tennis might look and feel a little bit different for a number of long-time fans. While some say this marks an end of an iconic era of tennis, remaining veterans in both men’s and women’s are nothing to sneeze at, and the young, upcoming names are worth looking into. 

Mid-2023 with horseracing, golf and football

Moving further into the year, the calendar from April through to June is filled with the biggest sporting events – to say the least. Snooker World Championships held in Sheffield, England will begin on 15th of April, followed by Kentucky Derby in Louisville, Kentucky, USA on 6th of May. The famous US PGA golf championship will be kicking off on 18th of May in Rochester, New York, moving into the French Open – second Grand Slam event for tennis fans. Football fans will rejoice as UEFA Champions League will be starting on 10th of June. A packed three months indeed!


Kentucky Derby 

The Kentucky Derby is the second-oldest horseracing event in the United States. The first race was held in 1875 with around 10,000 people in attendance and has been running every year since. The race is, going into the nitty gritty of the technical details, a Grade I stakes race for three-year-old Thoroughbreds. The length of the track – 2 kilometres. 

Typically drawing a crowd of around 155,000 spectators, the Kentucky Derby is the first leg of the so-called American Triple Crown – followed by Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes. Kentucky Derby is also the longest continually held sporting event in America and is one of the most prestigious horse races in the world. Even during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, 2020, the race was only rescheduled to take place later in the year. Interesting fact, even when the Olympics and major professional sport leagues cancelled, the Triple Crown took place during the Great Depression and both World Wars. For any horseracing enthusiast, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime must-attend event.

Enjoying summer with cycling, more tennis and football

There is no denying that compiling all of the international sporting events taking place in summer would become a very very long list. So, we’ll be highlighting a few of the biggest names out there. 

Cycling fans – enter the stage! For nearly the whole month of July, starting on 1st of July, the legendary Tour de France will bring together hundreds of thousands of fans to cheer on their favourite athletes competing in the world’s most high-profile bicycle race. The third Grand Slam event is also scheduled for the beginning of July. The well-known Wimbledon Championships will be kicking off on 3rd of July – the third of the four Grand Slam events of the year. Rounding up the summer – FIBA Men’s Basketball World Cup Championship starting on 25th of August in Indonesia, Japan, and rounding it up in the Philippines.

Tour de France

The annual men’s multi-stage bicycle race is one of the most-well know events around the world – even for those, who don’t follow the world of cycling. Consisting of whooping 21 stages, each a day long, the race is spread out over 23 days in total. Tour de France was first organised in 1903, and it’s the oldest of Grand Tours. 

While the route of the race changes each year, the format stays the same, including the appearance of time trials, a passage through the mountain chains of the Pyrenees and the Alps, and a finish on the Champs-Élysées in Paris, covering around 3,500 kilometres. 

Rounding the year off with rowing, rugby and Invictus Games

While the end of 2023 is still quite far off, planning to attend one of the sporting events taking place from September until the end of the year is never too early. The autumn season will kick off with the week-long World’s Rowing Championship in Serbia and will begin on the 3rd of September. Rugby fans will be back and busy with the men’s World Cup starting on 8th of September in France, and the Invictus Games will begin 9th of September in Germany.

Invictus Games

The international multi-sport event, first held in 2014, was founded by Prince Harry. The inspiration came from his visit to the Warrior Games in the US, where he witnessed how sport helped both psychologically and physically. The Invictus Games is for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women, both serving and veterans. The Games main purpose is to show how Armed Forces personnel and veterans – and their families – are cherished, appreciated and supported.

The first Games hosted 300 competitors from 13 countries which have fought alongside the United Kingdom in recent military campaigns involved – 8 countries from Europe, 2 countries from Asia, 2 countries from North America and 2 countries from Oceania.


Reaching your favourite sporting events with a group air charter

There is no denying that for large groups – corporate, sponsors, press and media representatives, and, of course, athletes and their teams – reaching their destinations in comfort and speed is of utmost importance. Commercial travel, as one might guess, doesn’t really provide that and often comes hand in hand with such complications as long queues at airport terminals and security checks, possible delays or flight cancellations – if the worse comes to worst. 

Private jet hire for large groups, on the other hand, offers the key element of comfort, which is undeniable for athletes and their management teams. Arriving in tip top shape is the number one thing for any athlete as it could sometimes be the deciding factor in a competition. Travelling privately also allows the teams to reach their destinations safely and securely – and offers nutritional meals onboard the private jet, adding up to the highest level of comfort possible.

To make your trip an absolute success, the tiniest of details must be arranged properly and with care – including any special requirement or needs the travellers could have. A long-established private jet charter company will be the one to take care of all the nuances of your trip with the highest level of professionalism. 

An enjoyable experience is guaranteed!
