Since London 2012, the UK has hosted nearly 100 major sporting events. We will host the World Athletic and Para-Athletic Championships in this summer, and after that, the women's World Cups in Cricket, Hockey and Netball, cycling's World Championships and the Euro 2020 semi finals and final.

The government is committed to bringing sport and tourism events to the UK. The Government’s Tourism Action Plan highlights the work we are doing to encourage major tourism events here.
