Happy New Year! It’s that time of a year, when people look forward to a fresh start and new beginnings. Sports fans are no different. So here at STATSCORE, we thought we would highlight 12 events to look out for this year and wish all sports fans, their favourite teams and athletes, all the best for 2019.
Lets kick this year off with the Australian Open. The event takes place at Melbourne park, and runs from the 14th to 27th of January. This will be the 107th time this great tournament takes place and the 51th in the Open Era. We would like to wish last years singles winners, Roger Federer and Caroline Wozniacki, all the best.

What can we offer you for February I hear you ask? Well, this is the month for one of the biggest sporting events on the planet! The American Super Bowl! Last year’s final saw an incredible match between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots. The Eagles fought like crazy to beat New England 41-33 and claim their first ever Super Bowl. With this years final only a matter of weeks away, we wish all NFL fans and the teams that have made this years playoffs, the best of luck!

March 17th sees the 2019, F1 season get under way with he Australian Grand Prix! A great day for motor sport fans I’m sure. Last year we got another great performance from Mercedes and their now 5 times F1 Championship Winner, Lewis Hamilton! Mercedes walked away with both the Drivers’ and Constructors’ Trophies again in 2018, can anyone stop them doing the same this year? We will see.

We are now into spring here in Europe and getting ready for the summer, but over in the US they will be hosting the 83rd edition of the Masters Tournament at the Augusta National Golf Club. It will be the first of golf’s four major championships in 2019. It will start on the 11th April and come to a conclusion on the 14th. Last year’s event saw first time major winner Patrick Reed, pip fellow Americans Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth to the title. Always a great event if you’re a golf fan and we’re sure that the return of a competitive Tiger Woods, will only add to the drama.
The summer may be almost upon us, but it’s an inside event we want to highlight for May, and as it’s based in the UK, it maybe for the best. Of course we’re talking about the 2019, World Snooker Championship at the Crucible in Sheffield. This will be the 20th and final ranking tournament of snookers 2018/2019 calendar. Last year’s final was between winner Mark Williams and runner up John Higgins in a tight match that ended 18-16. Who will walk away with this years winner’s cheque for £425,000?
If you’re a big football fan, you already know that June will bring with it the Champions League Final! This year it’s being held in Spain at Madrid’s Wanda Metropolitano on the 1st June. You will also remember last years final in Ukraine between Real Madrid and Liverpool, a match that Madrid won 3-1 to complete the treble of winning 3 consecutive finals. It was also their 13th CL/EC title overall. Can Madrid make it four in a row and 5 out of the last 6? It’s a big ask, but they’re a big team!
Look out for part two as we take you though the rest of 2019!
