After a sporting year completely overwhelmed by the coronavirus, we will go to a second chance in 2021, with the European Football Championships and Olympic Games postponed. These are the main sporting events scheduled for this year – subject to change.
Of course, the European Football Championships and the Olympics are the most striking in the crowded calendar. The two biggest events on the one-year calendar have been moved to the summer of 2021, but like all other tournaments, the question is whether all of it is possible this year.
At the moment, the world is still under the influence of the Coronavirus and strict travel restrictions are in place. European Championships in 12 different countries and the Games in Tokyo, with athletes from all over the world, will be a logistical challenge. The calendar below is promising, but subject to change.
