A lot of sporting seasons and competitions have come to an end but it doesn’t mean that there are no attractive sporting events in June. Football will bring us international games, tennis and Formula 1 are at the peak of their seasons and some sports have important dates in their calendar. Let’s see what June has on offer for us!
JUNE IN FOOTBALL
There are a large number of international football competitions around. At the start of the month, we will find out who’s the best club team in Europe.
The Champions League final takes place on the 1st of June. This important annual competition has been extremely attractive this season and there is a big challenge facing the two English teams, Liverpool and Tottenham, who will be hoping to reproduce the emotions felt in previous matches.
After that, international competitions will replace club football so don’t forget about FIFA’s ongoing U-20 World Cup in Poland. The final match will be played on June the 15th in Łódź.
The European Nations League will have their play-offs at the beginning of the month and the semi-finals take place on the 5th & 6th while the final and the 3rd & 4th playoff will bring the competition to an end on the 9th.
In June there’s also the UEFA EURO 2020 Qualifications games taking place from the 7th to the 11th.
From the 14th of June, the Copa America in Brazil will be taking place. It’s a tournament that’s made up of 3 groups and this time contains 2 guest teams Japan and Qatar and will last until the 7th of July. For Copa America STATSCORE has a dedicated Cup Center with full coverage of all the live action and along with all the stats!
The second big continental tournament will start a day later on the 15th of June. Of course, we are talking about the inauguration Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt. For the first time, this competition has been organized to take place in the summer. Everyone has been used to the winter period but this has always been a huge problem for clubs needing to release players to play for their national teams.
The finish of FIFA’s U-20 World Cup isn’t the end of football for the top young players in Europe. The 16th of June sees the start of the European U-21 Championships in Italy and San Marino. The final will be played on the 30th.
We don’t only have men’s football. In June the women will also get their chance to take to the field in their biggest international competition, FIFA’s Women’s World Cup in France. The event is played every 4 years like the men’s competition and will kick off on the 7th of June and end early in July.

JUNE IN BASKETBALL
The final games from the best basketball league in the world are on their way! In the first half of June, we will know the new (old?) champions of the NBA. Will Golden State Warriors win the title for the third time in a row? Or maybe Toronto Raptors will show their claws and take their title? It would be their first NBA title ever!
JUNE IN TENNIS
The best tennis players in the world have a very demanding start to June. There will be a decisive phase of the French Open. After that, they will start preparing for Wimbledon, which will start on the 1st of July.
JUNE IN FORMULA 1
We will be watching another 3 Formula 1 races in June. Drivers will start in Montreal (9.06), then they will drive in the French Grand Prix (23.06) and at the end of the month, they will move to Spielberg in Austria (30.06).
JUNE IN BEACH VOLLEYBALL
The Beach Volleyball World Championships will be played from June 28th to July 7th. This is a tournament played every two years, and this year it will be in Hamburg, Germany. Last time the Championship was won by the Brazilian Evandro Oliveira and Andre Stein in the men’s competition and by German Laura Ludwig and Kira Walkenhorst in the women’s competition.
