This year, it’s time to get out there and capture some excitement on a getaway you won’t soon forget. But travel can mean so much more than swimming pools and luxury resorts. Sports tourism is one of the fastest growing sectors of tourism for a reason – people love to catch the game. In person is so much better than on a screen, as we all can confirm after the past couple of years!
Here are some must-see 2022 sporting events to jet off to this year (and one in 2023!):
US PGA Championship: May 19-22, 2022
Welcome to Tulsa, Oklahoma! The US PGA Championship at the Southern Hills Country Club is sure to be a showstopper for gold enthusiasts in 2022. Book a charter flight early to attend this 104th entry into the PGA Championship history books and get a front-row view of the green as golf’s most legendary competitors duke it out for a $12 million purse in the picturesque Oklahoma springtime.
Monaco Grand Prix: May 26-30, 2022
The pristine Mediterranean waters of Monaco make it a dream location for a major sports tourism attraction lik the Monaco Grand Prix. Racing fans and sports tourists alike can enjoy historic downtowns and delicious dining — Monte Carlo is gorgeous this time of year — as they visit for the auto racing extravaganza.
Stanley Cup Finals: June 2022
The last possible day the Stanley Cup Final can end this year is June 30th, but we’re still a long way off from knowing who we’ll see in the championship series for the 2021-2022 season. Keep your eyes on the ice throughout the playoffs this May and charter a flight as soon as the two teams that will clash for the cup are confirmed.
MLB All-Star Game: July 19, 2022
Baseball fans can book the ultimate summer getaway to watch baseball’s featured summer classic — the All-Star Game on July 19 at Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles. You’ll have more than just the big game to watch. Soak in the experience at Workout Day, the Legends and Celebrity Softball Game, the Home Run Derby, and other exciting events. You won’t get many chances to see all of baseball’s biggest stars with your own eyes, all on one field, so get tickets and make arrangements soon.
World Series: October 2022
Will the Braves repeat? Will the favored Dodgers and Astros get there first? We’ll see how the summer shakes out in the baseball world, but the kickoff of the 2022 baseball season has already ignited chatter about its conclusion. Stay tuned as the season unfolds to learn who you’ll see this October in the final series of this quintessentially American pastime.
Rose Bowl Game: January 2, 2023
The Rose Bowl game in Pasadena is a ways off, but it’s not too early to start planning your trip at the turn of 2023. This mythic game has been held in “America’s Stadium” since 1902 — and watching it in person is a way to capture a piece of history you’ll never forget.
