Each year there are hundreds of great major sporting events, as you can see on our extensive list of world sporting events plus this list of just the major international multi-sport events. If you are going to see these sporting events, you will need to check out our sporting event calendar. Which of these should be on your bucket list - the must see sporting events before you die?

Must See Sports Lists
We have come across quite a few lists of must see sports. The lists are not the same, many different sports are included. The FINA World Cup and the Olympic Games are hard to argue with, but other events on the lists may be harder to choose, as people around the world have different sporting interests.

However, the reason we are there at the stadium is to watch a sporting contest, which makes it special.
