Four Destinations for Sports Tourism in 2019

Here is the list of of much-anticipated sporting events in 2019, including the Copa America in Brazil and FIFA Women’s World Cup in France. We hope to provide the perfect excuses for sports fans to travel to these destinations.

1. The FIFA Women’s World Cup in Paris, France

The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup from 7 June to 7 July will bring football fans from all over the world once again to France. The winner of the 2018 FIFA Men’s World Cup and the host and runner-up of the 2016 UEFA European Championship is the fourth nation to host both the premier men’s and women’s international football tournaments. In 2019, Paris also stages the French Open tennis championship (26 May-9 June) and Paris Rugby Sevens (1-2 June).

2. The Australian Open and more in Melbourne, Australia

On top of the annual showpieces including the Australian Open, Festival of Sails, Formula One’s Australian Grand Prix, there are several events heading to Melbourne in 2019.

3. Major League Soccer and NFL in Los Angeles, USA

The home of Hollywood continues its resurgence in the world of sports. LA now boasts two NFL (National Football League) organisations. The Chargers and Rams are among the best teams in the NFL this season, and they will have their new home, Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park, in 2020.

4. The 2019 Copa América in São Paulo, Brazil

The Copa America, South America’s biggest football tournament, is taking place in five Brazilian cities this summer. São Paulo is the only city that provides two stadiums: the Arena Corinthians and Estádio do Morumbi. After Brazil’s dismal exit from World Cup in 2014, the summer 2019 provides the Seleção with a shot at redemption.

In addition, Interlagos is the home of F1’s Brazilian Grand Prix once again and São Paulo is hosting the BIG Festival (Brazil’s Independent Games Festival) from 22 to 30 June, too.
