The new year is almost upon us and now is the perfect time to start planning the events you want to attend! 2020 is going to be a year full of sporting events, but there are also a few other events you can’t miss!
1. Quadrantids Meteor Shower in the Northern Hemisphere – January 3rd to January 4th
Peaking on the late night of January 3rd and early morning of January 4th. This is an above-average meteor shower that can only be seen well from the Northern Hemisphere. At its peak, you will be able to see 40 meteors per hour in the night sky. Shortly after midnight is the best time to catch the spectacular show.
2. 2020 X Games in Aspen, Colorado – January 23rd to January 26th
The 2020 X Games will be held in Aspen starting on January 23rd. The action sports and music festival will be featured on ESPN and ABC with athletes competing in various snowboarding and ski events.
3. Super Bowl LIV in Miami, Florida – February 2nd
The Super Bowl takes place in Miami in 2020 and you can expect a spectacular show as usual. Of course, we don’t know who the two teams are who will be battling in it. But if we had to guess, it will most likely be the New England Patriots again against either the San Francisco 49ers or the New Orleans Saints.
4. Coachella in Indio, California – April 10th to April 19th
The music festival returns to the desert of California once again in 2020 for two epic weekends of music. As of now, only Thom Yorke has confirmed, but if 2020’s lineup is anything like last year’s, you can expect artists like Kanye West, Weezer, Lizzo, Zedd, Billie Eilish, Diplo, Kid Cudi and plenty more.
5. UEFA Champions League Final in Istanbul – May 30th
The UEFA Champions League Final takes place on May 30th in Istanbul this year. This is the final match of the 65th season of UEFA. Teams are still to be determined, but it is always guaranteed to be a good match!
6. 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo – July 24th to August 9th
The Summer Olympics only take place every 4 years and the 2020 event is going to be held in Tokyo. The international multi-sport event is expected to have 206 nations participate for medals in 339 events including swimming, golf, gymnastics, surfing and even 3×3 basketball.
7. 2020 Presidential Debate at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana – September 29th
The 2020 Election is already one of the biggest stories and it isn’t even 2020 yet. Recently, they just announced that the 1st 2020 Presidential Debate will be held at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana in September. The following 2 debates will be in October in Michigan and Tennessee. We know the Republican nominee with be current President Donald Trump but it is still up in the air who the Democratic nominee will be.
As the year 2020 approaches, there will be even more events added to the calendar. I am personally looking forward to the Presidential Debate, but what are you most excited for in 2020?
