2019 in Sport


2019 has already been a remarkable year for sport around the world and this is only set to continue with a number of high profile events starting soon. Both Royal Ascot and the Cheltenham festival provided memorable occasions in the racing world and were both a great success. 

This is a similar story to the Women’s football World cup in France. This really helped in increasing the interest in Women’s football with record breaking figures. The United States defended their title and had proved a popular selection throughout the competition for punters using offers at Tennis is another sport continuing to be very popular and Djokovic continued his remarkable run of form with victory at Wimbledon. This included one of the greatest matches in history as he took the victory over Federer.

The Cricket World cup was eventually won by hosts England and this event was another which will do wonders for the popularity of the sport. The final provided possibly the greatest game in history as England lifted the trophy through a super over victory over New Zealand. This turned out to be one of the most memorable days of sport alongside the Wimbledon final.
