Sporting Events Worth Traveling for (Even if you’re not a Sports Fan) + Win a Trip to Europe

Obviously you know me as a travel writer, but what seems like many moons ago, I was a university athlete, high school basketball coach, and a ravenous sports fan. From American football to soccer and golf to tennis, much of my leisure time revolved around sports. Now, not so much, unless sports coincide with travel. Attending the summer Olympics, the Kentucky Derby in Louisville, the White Turf Races in St. Moritz, and the Palio in Siena, remain on my to-do list, along with playing golf at St. Andrews.

I’ve attended NCAA basketball Final Fours, several NBA and NFL playoff games, PGA tournaments, ATP tournaments, countless NCAA football games, and Eurocup soccer matches. I’m a believer that you don’t have to be a jock to enjoy watching live sports. Attending is not only a look into a destination’s culture and traditions, but sport often is the setting for a big ol’ party. Thus, here are four sporting events worth traveling for {even if you’re not a sports fan}.

Indianapolis 500

In the pits of the Indy 500

Come the month of May, the eyes of the racing world are on Indianapolis. Since 1911, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has played host to “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing,” otherwise known as the Indianapolis 500. On the last Sunday of the month, in conjunction with Memorial Day weekend, thirty-three of the best drivers compete for the Borg-Warner Trophy, one of the most coveted prizes in sports. Along with the trophy, the winner also wins part of the approximately $12,000,000 purse.

Kissing the bricks of the finish line is an Indy tradition.

The size of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is massive. Supposedly, Yankee Stadium, the Roman Colosseum, the Vatican and Churchill Downs all fit inside the track’s oval. The complex also has an 18-hole golf course, Hall of Fame Museum, twenty-six bridges, six tunnels and 220 acres of the grandstands.

It’s not a party until someone gets sick in the infamous Snake Pit.

The actual race is just part of what the Indianapolis 500 entails. The pageantry of the weekend is akin to Pasadena’s Rose Bowl, combined with the tradition of the Kentucky Derby and the party atmosphere of the Super Bowl. The Indy 500 is far from just a race, one to which television doesn’t do justice. From private boxes to tents, there are numerous ways to party at the Speedway. The inside of turn three is known as the Snake Pitt. The debauchery that takes place there is stuff of legends. Sponsored by Coors Light, this party within a party within a sporting event is not for the novice partier. Then there’s the VIP experience—police-escorted bus, golf carts, starting line access, and a private suite filled with plenty of race day food and alcoholic refreshments. Needless to say, you can guess which experience I enjoyed most at the Indy 500.

FIFA World Cup

Hanging out with Japanese soccer fans

Lucky me, I was living in Rio de Janerio when Brazil was hosting the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Unlucky me, I didn’t actually attend a match. But what I did do is carouse with the hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the world on Ipanema and Copacabana Beaches.

Spanish and a single Chilean fan party before their teams play.

The World Cup is more than a massive sports-themed party. It’s a connector. People from around the globe are brought together by their love of football and country–a rainbow of nations together hoisting beers and reliving the day’s matches. It’s not about politics, religion, or country borders. Between the enthusiasm, costumes, national pride, and alcohol, the fans might be the best thing about going to the World Cup.

Henley Royal Regatta

There are people who actually watch the competition.

If a more civilized sport is more your cup of tea, look no further than the Henley Royal Regatta. Held annually in Henley-on-Thames, England, this rowing competition began in 1839. During the five-day event, thousands of revelers line the Thames River to watch crew clubs and university teams row, row, row their boats.

Doing my best not to get kicked out of Stewards’ Enclosure

Yes, this is a legendary and prestigious sporting tradition, but it’s also one of the UK’s social events of the season. Swanky tents require tickets, and Pimm’s and Champagne flow like the Thames. If you’re especially well connected, then Stewards’ Enclosure is where you’ll enjoy the festivities.

Preppy overload going on at the HRR.

With a very strict dress code, men don colorful suits and ties, while ladies adorn their heads with giant hats or fascinators. Forget the short dresses; knees must be covered. Ignore these rules and you’ll be cast out among the commoners to drink at the Regatta Enclosure.

Doudou Festival

Barely room enough to breathe at the Doudou Festival

Alright, so Ducasse de Mons, otherwise known as the Doudou Festival, isn’t a sporting event, per se. BUT, I’d argue that’s its as taxing on the body as any marathon. Held in Mons, Belgium, this mega-party occurs on Trinity Sunday, about a month and a half after Easter. The madness began in the mid-1300s, and like so many things from the Middle Ages, this tradition came about because of a plague. You’ll have to read up on the entire history, but it involves the shrine of Waltrude, bones, Saint George, and a dragon. Though the Doudou Festival was {and still is} rooted in the Catholic religion, it’s morphed into a giant party. And when Belgians party, you know there is plenty of beer involved.

‘Saint George’ is actually a descendant of the original Saint George.

The main event is known as Lumeçon, which is a fight on the main square of Mons between good {Saint George} and evil {the dragon}. Thousands upon thousands of adrenaline and alcohol-filled people pour into the square to watch Saint George on horseback battle a 10-meter long dragon. The beast’s tail is made from horsehair and considered good luck to get a strand.

These guys slam air-filled pig bladders onto the ground for an hour.

Stay with me here; it’s about to get really strange. Chinchins represent dogs and ‘protect’ Saint George and his horse. Meanwhile, the dragon is ‘protected’ by little devils armed with air-filled pig bladders on sticks. Symbolic and carefully choreographed, this battle goes on for an astonishing hour.

Absolute exhaustion

If carrying a dragon and swinging a pig’s bladder doesn’t sound sporty enough, just take a look at the crowd. Mostly shirtless, drunk men are smashed together like sardines, each trying to grab a piece of the dragon’s tail, as it swings over the crowd’s heads. Police are struggling to keep rambunctious revelers out of the arena. Meanwhile, the dragon is swirling, Saint George’s horse is pacing, and the little devils are smacking the Chinchins with swine innards. Honestly, it’s one of the strangest, yet most riveting events I’ve ever seen.

    • Leah Walker
      March 8, 2017

      I haven’t been to to Le Mans or the Monaco Grand Prix. I’d totally travel for those!

      • Julie

  • Lisa
    March 8, 2017

    I think the horse shows at Spruce Meadows in Calgary are worth travelling for — several road trips with my daughter made for loads of fun!

  • Theresa Larose
    March 8, 2017

    I think hockey is worth travelling for….! Although I love travelling so much I’d travel for beer pong!!!

  • Penny Gay
    March 8, 2017

    As a proud Canadian and loyal dedicated TML Fan – HOCKEY is definitely THE sporting event worth traveling for {even if you’re not a sports fan}. The atmosphere at these games is contagious and you can’t help but get into the game!

  • Katelyn
    March 8, 2017

    Blue Jays game in TO! Not far but worth it.

  • Rukia Isabel Yosuf
    March 8, 2017

    Thalys travels to dreamy Paris!
    Also Ice Hockey is the absolute best! Nashville (where I’m from and live still) is home to the Predators!
    They’re amazing! I also love the Maple Leafs and the Ducks though!

  • Nioushah Noushi
    March 8, 2017

    FIFA and the Ice Hockey World Championships are definitely worth the trip! But so are La Liga football games! It’s not always about the sport but rather the ambiance and company! 🙂

  • Murissa Shalapata
    March 8, 2017

    My fingers are crossed!
    I love attending sporting events anywhere I can. It gives a bit of insight into the culture.
    As a Canadian hockey is always worth traveling for!

  • Ayngelina Brogan
    March 8, 2017

    All sports events are worth traveling for just to eat in the concession stands! I wonder what the food will be like at the championships, will they have Tim Hortons coffee for the Canadians?

    Just kidding, coffee in France is so much better.

  • Deborah Peniuk
    March 8, 2017

    Soccer and hockey are two sports I’d travel for as I played soccer for 25 years and my Uncle played professional hockey during the 70’s & 80’s. There is a whole different vibe to international games!

  • William Castillo
    March 8, 2017

    The FIFA World Cup is one event I wwould definitely travel for. It would be an incredible experience!

  • Leah Ellis
    March 8, 2017

    I am so happy to have found your site! I would travel to any/all of these. Not sure I can pick one but certainly intrigued by the Kentucky Derby or a Stanley Cup game.

  • Shauna
    March 9, 2017

    Obviously Ice Hockey World Championships are worth traveling for! Gareth and I went to the Rugby world cup while we were in New Zealand. You can’t beat the atmosphere in any live match!

  • Nadine Matheson
    March 9, 2017

    I’m Canadian! How great would it be to watch some hockey in other beautiful countries. Ehhh!

  • Kelsy
    March 9, 2017

    Ice hockey anything! World championship or world juniors in Europe would be a dream!

  • Tawnya
    March 9, 2017

    The Saskatchewan Roughriders are my hometown CFL team and there is nothing like being in the stadium for a hometown game!! Definitely worth traveling the 7+ hours it would take for me to drive there now that we live in Alberta. And also Thalys travels to Paris.

  • Mimi
    March 11, 2017

    We totally always travel for sports as well! Love this article!

  • Kavey at Kavey Eats
    March 11, 2017

    I’m not usually a big sports fan but I do think it’s interesting to occasionally go and see a big sporting event where it’s a particularly good cultural insight into the place you are visiting. I’d love to see Baseball in the US or Sumo wrestling in Japan, for example!

  • Taryn
    March 11, 2017

    I’d travel for the Olympics. Having experienced the atmosphere in Vancouver during the 2010 games, I’m itching to go to another games. I went to see sports I never thought I’d like, such as speed skating.

  • Rhonda Albom
    March 11, 2017

    Too bad I can’t enter the contest, but I did have to comment on Doudou Festival. OMG – that is the most bizarre. Thanks for the read. I am not a fan of crowds or drunks, so I probably wouldn’t attend, but I am glad you did and share it with us.

  • Jennifer
    March 12, 2017

    I love traveling for sporting events! We’ve been to baseball games all over the US, have traveled to London several times just for the NFL International games held each year, gone to the Monaco Grand Prix, and various world ski championships.

    The Palio in Siena is on my to do list too – never went despite living in Italy for seven years!

  • Megan Jerrard
    March 12, 2017

    I’m not Canadian but will share the posts with my friends – what a fab opportunity – especially to see the ice hockey! I’m not a huge sports fan but I do love traveling to sporting events for the atmosphere of the game and it’s a great way to mingle with locals when you’re experiencing a new place 🙂

  • Johanna Read
    March 13, 2017

    Love seeing soccer when whichever country I’m in is playing in the World Cup. Olympics are always special, such a great feeling in the air (as there was here in Vancouver in 2010!). And cheering my mum while she ran the NYC Marathon was something I’ll never forget.

  • Lindsay
    March 13, 2017

    Thalys travels to Cologne! I’d love to travel for one of the Six Nations rugby games. (Or the Abu Dhabi GP – the sunset views are supposed to be incredible!)

  • Hannah
    March 13, 2017

    I would love to check out sumo wrestling in Japan- I definitely think that is a unique sport that would be an interesting experience and worth travelling to see.

  • Barbara Balfour
    March 13, 2017

    As a proud Albertan, my vote is for the world-class equestrian events at Spruce Meadows! But I’d also travel to see a soccer match in Spain or Portugal.

  • Paul Koros
    March 13, 2017

    Euro Cup!!!

  • Claudia
    March 13, 2017

    This would certainly be an amazing prize! I’m Canadian and qualify to enter. 🙂 We’ve been to Serie A soccer matches in Italy and of course many events at Vancouver’s 2010 Winter Olympics. They are always very exciting and fun to see.

  • Leigh
    March 13, 2017

    I’ve been to a few events at the Vancouver Olympics and am heading to an NHL game tonight to see Sidney Crosby. The Henley Regatta has always had appeal.

  • Jessica Woollard
    March 13, 2017

    So many are worth it, but I love watch hockey abroad most of all. I’d also love to attend a match of a the nation I’m visiting’s favourite sport, to see how the locals really behave when watching their team. : )

  • Vanessa Chiasson
    March 13, 2017

    I think it’s worth traveling to see rare, one of a kind events. Ottawa just hosted the Red Bull Crashed Ice world championships and it was incredible. It was nearly 30 degrees below zero and the whole city was out – you just can’t see events like this every day!

  • Sandy N Vyjay
    March 13, 2017

    Combining the pleasures of sports and travel is really a great experience. We have not done that so far, but would love to. It would be wonderful to say combine our travel plans with events like the Olympic! Being cricklet fans, probably we may want to visit Australia or England during a test match.

  • Jen Ochej
    March 13, 2017

    I actually just travelled last weekend to attend my first NHL game with my brother! I’ve never been much into watching any kind of sports on TV, but there’s something different about seeing it live – and about sharing the experience with my hockey-fan brother 🙂

  • Miranda
    March 14, 2017

    I’ve always wanted to go to the Kentucky Derby or the Yukon Quest dog race. But I also love a good play off final hockey game whether it be Junior A, WHL or NHL.

  • Ilona Biro
    March 14, 2017

    Any of the Grand Slam tennis tournaments would be fabulous to attend, but the Australia Open would be especially welcome in the middle of a cold winter! After that, I would take in as many Australian football games as I could manage. But international hockey, like soccer and the Olympics, is extra special, with all the national pride on display and shared, white-knuckle moments. Plus it’s lovely to see people from other countries who are just as mad as we are about hockey! Thalys brings travellers to Amsterdam, Brussels and Paris, to sporting events, among other things.

  • Amanda
    March 14, 2017

    I was lucky enough to see the Grand Prix in Monaco one year – overlooking the French Rivera and million dollar yachts. Worth every Euro! Otherwise, going “home” to Melbourne to watch North Melbourne play at Aussie Rules at the MCG is my idea of bliss.

  • Sandra
    March 14, 2017

    well I will admit that i am not a big sports fan but you make is sound fun! And one of my fondest memories is going with my dad to see the Islanders play. Great contest!

    Thalys travels to Paris. I love travelling out of town for playoff baseball, basketball and hockey games. It’s usually the most emotional time, and when I get attached, I love being in the heart of the action, even if I don’t find tickets for the game and have to sit at the bar next to the stadium (has happened!).

  • Rob
    March 15, 2017

  • Jennifer Hart
    March 15, 2017

    I wish I could answer this question from experience but I have honestly never traveled for sports before. I think anything would most likely be worth it. I would like to see, live, some of the sports I don’t get to watch. For example Cricket or Polo or Tennis or Volleyball. Even Gymnastics or Aquatic events! As a proud Canadian gal, I would never say no to Hockey though!

    I think that any sporting event that you grew up watching as a child is worth travelling for. Especially if your childhood dream has a chance at winning the top prize of whatever sport it is. For me, that would be Fifa, preferably the world cup to watch Germany.

    Hockey is always fun to watch and worth traveling for. I also don’t mind going to a football game especially the Super Bowl so I could watch the half time show. I would also go see a golf game. I don’t like golf but they always play in amazing locations so they are worth traveling to.

  • Henry Terlecki

    The sporting event you have to go to (even if you’re not a sports fan) is a deciding game of the Stanley Cup final. The passion and fight for Lord Stanley’s mug is huge. To see it presented on the ice is breath-taking!

  • Bee Low
    March 20, 2017

    A sporting event worth travelling to is either Olympics, with the Winter one having a bit of an edge for me since it has figure skating. 🙂 And for the other question, one of the cities Thalys travels to is Amsterdam.

  • Sabrina Dominguez
    March 20, 2017

    It’s not as big as other events but has a special place in my heart…Crankworx, Whistler. Anyone who loves mountain biking can appreciate the atmosphere and riding. Other than that, I’d say the Olympics 🙂 (AND Thalys travels to Brussels).

  • Rekha

    I’d love to travel for the Stanley Cup, being Canadian, but I think the World Cup Soccer would be exciting and it’s in more places than the Stanley cup so you’d get to see more of the world.

  • Ashley Lombardo

    I’m not a huge sports fan, however I AM a huge fam of travel. I would most love to experience Bullfighting in Spain. The tradition can seem cruel, and I’d like to witness it for myself to see how something that could be considered so inhumane to some, can be so liberating to others. Also, I wouldn’t mint sipping on some fine Sherry, or perhaps a Sangria.

    Cheers!

    The Olympics (summer or winter!) because it’s the one time every two years that non-sports fans get excited about sports, because the energy and patriotism is so amazing.
