12 Sporting Events You Won’t Want To Miss In 2023

Links Hospitality sports hospitality: Our top 12 events of 2023

Make it your New Year's resolution to treat loyal clients to some of the biggest sporting fixtures in the calendar with Links Hospitality. Here are 12 events we're most excited about in the coming months...

Six Nations: Wales v England (25 February)

With Warren Gatland back in charge of Wales and Steve Borthwick now leading England, this Six Nations encounter should offer plenty of clues as to how these nations will fare at the World Cup, which kicks off in September. Wales suffered a narrow 23-19 defeat at Twickenham last year but may be slight favourites in front of a passionate home crowd. 

Cheltenham Festival (14-17 March)

This four-day extravaganza is considered the Olympics of jump racing. And with more than a quarter of a million pints of Guinness sunk over the course of the event, it boasts an atmosphere unlike any other. 

The Random Health Grand National (15 April)

Aintree’s notorious four-and-a-half-mile course — complete with 30 formidable fences — normally conjures up some intense drama on Grand National Saturday. Last year, jockey Sam Waley-Cohen guided 50-1 shot, Noble Yeats, to victory in his last race before retirement. 

F1: Monaco Grand Prix (28 May)

Arguably the most prestigious motor race in the world — and without doubt one of the most interesting — Monaco's tight street circuit is more than a match for the planet's best drivers. Get ready for drama (and a glass or two of Champagne). 

Royal Ascot (20-24 June)

The annual horse racing festival is usually attended by a handful of the Royal family — it was one of Queen Elizabeth II's favourite events — so you'll be in good company as you cheer on the runners and riders. Just don't forget your hat. 

Tennis: Cinch Championships (19-25 June)

A Wimbledon warm-up event? Not a bit of it — the Queen’s Club Championships serve up some of the best grass-court action around. Past winners include Rafael Nadal, Feliciano Lopez and a certain Mr. Andrew Murray.

Henley Royal Regatta (27 June-2 July)

One of the Great British summertime traditions, the Henley Royal Regatta is one of the world's best-known rowing events, with crews from around the world racing along a gruelling 1.3-mile stretch of the Thames.   

F1: British Grand Prix (9 July)

The home support will be hoping 2023 is a better year for Mercedes, with teammates Lewis Hamilton and George Russell leading Britain's charge against defending world champion, Max Verstappen. 

Tennis: The Championship Wimbledon (3-16 July)

Another summer staple, nothing beats strawberries, cream and a glass of Pimms at the All England Club. After lifting his seventh Wimbledon men's singles title in 2022, Novak Djokovic will be chasing Roger Federer's record of eight this year. Can anyone stop him?

Goodwood Festival of Speed(13-16 July)

Feeling the need for speed? Join us at the historic Goodwood House in July as legendary names from the world of motorsport rev up their engines and race up the iconic hillclimb track. 

The 151st Open: Royal Liverpool (19-23 July)

The Open is back at Royal Liverpool for the first time since 2014 when Rory McIlroy lifted the Claret Jug. A repeat performance would make up for his final-round agony at St Andrews' Old Course last year. 

F1: Abu Dhabi Grand Prix (26 November)

In 2021, the Yas Marina Circuit was the scene of the most dramatic conclusion to a Formula 1 season ever, with a thrilling final lap race-off between Lewis Hamilton and eventual world champion Max Verstappen. Can we expect more of the same in 2023?
