7 Upcoming Football Events You Shouldn’t Miss
If you’re a big football fan, you’d have plenty of excitement even though you’re already four months into this year. The FIFA Club World Cup last February began with thrills, but more events await you in May and June.
If you’re itching for more action in the football scene, here are the dates to look out for. Additionally, this guide will help you learn the dates, location, ticket buying, live broadcasts, and even past champions! So get your calendar ready and stay tuned for these events:
FIFA U-20 World Cup
The first event you’ll want to watch is the Fédération Internationale de Football Association or FIFA U-20 World Cup from May 20 to June 11, 2023. Moreover, the Bureau of the FIFA Council has recently confirmed the host of this year – Argentina! Although this followed the removal of Indonesia as the original host, the Council and the Argentinian Football Association (AFA) agreed upon the new tournament venue.
Additionally, this World Cup has participating teams such as Argentina, Ukraine, Colombia, Ecuador, and the Dominican Republic, to name a few. Moreover, Ukraine was the last defending champion in 2019 when they beat South Korea in a blazing match.
You could tune in to FIFA+, SportPlus, and TBS to watch the official stream of the match. You could also watch FIFA+ for the draw matches before the big game happens and follow Topsport soccer news for recent updates on each team! If you want to get tickets for the game, you can also check the FIFA site, register, and buy your tickets online!
Europa League Final
The Europa League in Puskas Arena, Budapest, is the next football event to watch. This event will happen on one day only, May 31. Last year, Eintracht Frankfurt, a German football club, took the title – sealing a win against the Rangers, a Scottish football club. This year, you’re set to see teams such as Juventus Football Club from Italy and Bayer 04 Leverkusen from Germany.
Additionally, multiple broadcast packages range from delayed matches to digital coverage and match highlights. An extensive list of the Union of European Football Association (UEFA) ‘s partnered broadcast channels for different continents exists. The site also offers ticket buying to those interested in watching the game live!
FA Cup Final
The finale for the FA Cup or the Emirates Football Association (FA) will be held on June 3 at Wembley Stadium, London. Likewise, the semi-finals for the FA Cup are still ongoing, which means that the teams to have a complete face-off in the finals are still undetermined!
Last season, Liverpool took the trophy after the match remained goalless even after additional time. This instance was the second time it occurred since 2005. Moreover, Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp became the first German manager to win an FA Cup. Moreover, you could watch the live broadcast from ESPN+, BBS, and BT Sport and buy tickets at the Wembley Park website.
Europa Conference League Final
The Europa Conference League will commence on June 7 at the Eden Arena in Prague, Czech Republic. This is a grand event with a glossy-finished trophy that weighs 11kg. Moreover, Roma brought home the bacon with a 1-0 score against Feyenoord Rotterdam (a Dutch football club).
The teams are yet to be announced this year, so tune into the latest updates! Like the Europa League Final, you also have multiple broadcast channels – all listed on UEFA’s website. Moreover, you could also buy tickets from the site.
UEFA Champions League Final
The UEFA certainly offers fans an action-packed calendar as the Champions League Final will happen on June 10 in Istanbul, Turkey – with this event becoming the second major UEFA competition to be staged at the Olympic Stadium. Additionally, Real Madrid CF was the reigning champion for last year’s league, gaining 1-0 in the match.
This year, the teams for the semi-finals were just released, such as Inter (an Italian football club), Manchester City FC, and Associazione Calcio (AC) Milan, to name a few. You can watch this match on streaming sites such as Paramount + and CBS Sports!
UEFA Nations League Final
This June 14 to 18, you will witness the UEFA Nations League Final hosted by the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, and Croatia. With plenty of host countries, you will have a fun-filled five days! Moreover, these countries also topped with League A groups this year, so you’ll see more of them in this tournament.
Booking your ticket now is no longer viable as the submission has been long over since March 16. With this, you only have broadcasts like the Fubo Sports Network and Fox Sports to watch out for.
AFC Asian Cup
The last event to mark in your calendar is the AFC Asian Cup this June 16 to July 16 in Qatar. This tournament features 24 nations included in the Asian Confederation, such as Japan, Syria, South Korea, Australia, Iran, United Arab Emirates, and China, to name a few. Lastly, you can watch the broadcast from CBS Sports and buy your tickets online at the tournament’s official site!
The best way to go about your schedule is to mark these dates and follow the latest news updates. Doing so keeps you in tune with new information and team matches. So get your planner and have fun once these events come!
