The Biggest Women’s Sporting Events of 2020

Recently, there has been a sharp increase in the number of people taking an avid interest in women’s sporting events. Whether it be women’s football, athletics, golf, tennis, or anything else, the world of sports is no longer dominated by males. If you are interested in sports and are into sports betting, betting on women’s sports is actually extremely entertaining and can be highly lucrative as well. 2020 looks set to be one of the biggest sporting years for women. If you enjoy your sports betting and gambling, this is the year to turn your attention to women in sport. To help you decide on what to take a punt on, below, we’ll be taking a look at the biggest women’s sporting events of 2020, so take a look and see what might be worth gambling on through sports betting sites like Findbettingsites.co.uk.

The Women’s FA Cup Final

The first sporting event to mark down in your calendar is the women’s FA cup final. Once again taking place in arguably the best stadium in the world – Wembley, the women’s FA cup final will take place on Saturday the 9th of May, 2020. This year, at this stage it is honestly too close to call in terms of who will win, although last season’s champs, Manchester City, might be worth a cheeky punt. Last year they defeated West Ham 3-0 in the final, and so far, they look set to continue their fine form. It is still very early on, though, and there are many games to play between now and May, so take your time, do your research, and decide whom you would like to back.

The Olympic Games

Okay, the Olympic Games is not exclusively a women’s sporting event, as it features men and women, but even so, the female athletes that will be showcasing their abilities in Tokyo, Japan, this summer, are up there with the best we’ve ever seen. The great thing about the Olympics is the fact that the women are now featured in more events than ever before. Whether you’re into your archery, your fencing, judo, wrestling, athletics, swimming, boxing, or anything else for that matter, if you enjoy watching female athletes in action, the Olympic Games will not disappoint. Here’s hoping that the athletes from team GB once again do us proud like they continue to do, and bring home plenty of gold in several months’ time.

US Open

Taking place between August the 24th and September the 13th, the US Open from New York City looks set to be another massive tournament for female athletes. This Grand Slam event is a must for any tennis fan, and the big question is whether Bianca Andreescu can once again do it and claim victory at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Centre in Flushing Meadows, New York City. The Big Apple is not shy of things to see and do if you visit in person, but even if you’re viewing from the comfort of your armchair at home, the tennis on offer here will be nothing short of amazing, as women in tennis have come on leaps and bounds over the last few decades. Tennis Icon Billie Jean King actually founded the Women’s Sports Foundation back in 1974, so it only seems fitting that the Billie Jean King National Tennis Centre once again hosts the Grand Slam event for yet another year.

CP Women’s Open

Those of you who are interested in women’s golf should make it a point to keep August the 31st – September 6th clear in your diary. Why? Because in Vancouver, Canada, the CP Women’s Golf tournament will be held. Here, keen women’s golf fans can enjoy golfing prodigies such as Brooke Henderson, in their element and see them flourish with their sport of choice. This is actually the only Canadian stop featured in the LGPA (Ladies Professional Golf Association), but what a stop it will be. Taking place at the upmarket Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club, you see the finest women golfers in the business today, battling it out on the course in a big to seal a win. Vancouver is a beautiful city and it is also a city steeped in history and women’s sports. It has previously hosted two of women’s sports most prestigious events, namely the 2010 women’s Olympic Hockey Gold Medal final, and the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup Final, which saw the USA defeat Japan 5 – 2 thanks to a Carli Lloyd hattrick.
