Top Upcoming Sporting Events in India 2021

With only a few sporting events taking place in 2020, sports fans haven’t had an opportunity to enjoy too many first-class performances. However, much to their delight, numerous sporting events have been rescheduled for the following year. In fact, some of them are already in the preparation phase, so, hopefully, 2021 will turn out to be an exciting year filled with first-class sporting events.

Therefore, let’s see what sports fans from India are looking forward to the most.

Handball World Championships

The 27th edition of the IHF World Men’s Handball Championship is scheduled to start just after the New Year’s holidays, on January 13, 2021. The championship will take place in Egypt, and, for the first time in history, there will be 32 instead of 24 teams competing for the trophy.

As the reigning world champion, Denmark has been one of the first countries to earn its place in the competition. In addition, 13 more European countries have qualified, based on their final ranking in the 2020 European Men’s Handball Championship.

The names of the nations from South and North America we will watch next January have been announced recently as well, as these two continents had to postpone their qualification tournaments. Unfortunately, the countries from Oceania (Australia and New Zealand) did not finish in the top five in the Asian Championships, which is why they did not qualify for the elite tournament.

This year, there haven’t been too many handball betting opportunities for handball enthusiasts. Still, once the championship starts, Indian punters will get a chance to find incredible betting odds at some of the best betting sites online.

Tennis Australian Open

Many tennis fans from India are looking forward to the start of the year, as it is traditionally reserved for the first Grand Slam of the season — the Australian Open. In 2021, the tournament is set to begin on January 18. The men’s singles final will be held on January 31, whereas the women will play their final match the day before.

It’s left to be seen whether Novak Djokovic will defend his title and set a new record by lifting his ninth trophy in Rod Laver Arena. Similarly, we are going to have to wait and see whether Sofia Kenin can repeat her last year’s success when she unexpectedly beat Garbiñe Muguruza.

Numerous tennis enthusiasts are excited about the new season, as they have missed the special betting odds that come with Grand Slam championships. Tennis betting has become more intriguing than ever, with numerous betting markets provided by the best betting sites.

Cycling Track World Championships

Another much-anticipated sporting event for Indian sports fans is the Cycling Track World Championships 2021. The UCI Track Cycling World Championships will be held in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan and it is expected to set the record for the largest sporting event held in Turkmenistan to date. Unfortunately, hardcore fans will have to remain patient for a little while longer, as the championship is set to take place from 13 to October 17 2021.

Betting odds on cycling betting have never been more eye-catching, so best betting sites can expect even more traffic during one of the biggest cycling championships. Furthermore, you may also be able to find a live streaming option on one of these websites if you are interested in witnessing a roller coaster of events during the Cycling Track World Championships.

World Indoor Athletic Championships

Originally scheduled for March 12, 2020, the 18th edition of the World Indoor Athletic Championships has been postponed for March 19, 2021. This exciting event will end on March 21, and it will take place in Nanjing, China.

The scheduling and the names of participants have already been announced, and there have been no changes so far. This has made all the fans of indoor athletics quite happy, as they have been patiently waiting for the event to start.

Furthermore, the fans have been eager for athletic betting to become available as well, as they are looking to support their favourite athletes in their upcoming feats. In fact, many punters in India seem pretty excited about the upcoming indoor championships because of their versatile events and outstanding participants. Therefore, we can only expect that the best betting sites will offer attractive betting odds to these enthusiastic players.

Cheltenham Festival

The Cheltenham Festival is probably one of the most anticipated horse racing events, both in Britain and in India. The sport has a long-standing tradition in both countries, and many spectators look forward to seeing the races live on the best betting sites. Still, if you have the opportunity to visit the Cheltenham field during the festival, we advise you to do so, as there is nothing similar to the feeling of watching your first race.

Once you get into the spirit of horse racing, you may wish to place a wager. For that reason, we advise you to research the best odds and betting tips before the Cheltenham Festival starts on March 16, 2021. After that, you can put together your horse racing betting slip by predicting the outcome of numerous races, from the Cheltenham Gold Cup to the Queen Mother Champion Chase, Champion Hurdle, and Stayers’ Hurdle. The festival is four days long, so make sure to get the most out of it while you can.
