July 2, 2022 – SPORT4FINAL / Frank Zepp:

This year and in 2023, there will be a number of such events that promise excitement and sport at the top level. We provide a brief overview of when which sporting event takes place and what background is interesting in each case.

Big football events

First of all, it is worth taking a look at the major football events. Fans can look forward to this year, among other things:

  • soccer world cup
  • and the start of the Bundesliga season 2022/2023.

World Cup in football

The World Cup will take place in Qatar this winter. It is held from November 21 to December 18. This is quite exceptional as the tournament is usually scheduled every four years during the summer months.

France is defending champion. Elf was able to win the title in 2018 after their second title in 1998 in an exciting final against Croatia. Germany failed for the first time in history in the preliminary round – after 0: 2 against South Korea.

It is now known that the German national team, which is currently coached by Hansi Flick, will line up for the preliminary round in Group E. The opponents are here:

The matches that the national team plays in the group stage will take place on 23 November (14.00), 27 November (20.00) and 1 December (16.00). Especially for the matches in the afternoon, the fans can now plan well in advance and try to get a holiday for the corresponding days to cheer on the national team.

Furthermore, fans can consider early on how to adapt to the respective games. Unlike previous world and European championships, the weather in Germany will be quite cold after all.

In addition, fans have the opportunity to individually increase the excitement around the games. This works, for example, by betting on a specific team. There are various providers of online sports betting, to offer appropriate opportunities.

Those interested can get an initial overview of the possibilities on various online portals. According to a comparison, the best gaming providers include Bet365, Bwin and Betway.

Next Bundesliga season

The Bundesliga is also interesting for many football fans. In the past season FC Bayern Munich became champions again – already on match day 31 with a victory over Borussia Dortmund. The team thus won their tenth title in a row – a significant record that no other team has achieved before.

There are already game plans for the 2022/2023 season. It starts on August 5th. Last match day is scheduled for May 27, 2023. A special feature is the long winter break due to the World Cup, which as already mentioned is held at this time.

On the one hand, it will be exciting for the fans to see if a team can break Bayern Munich’s record series or continue their winning streak. In addition, with Werder Bremen and FC Schalke 04, there are two promotions from the second Bundesliga that have a long history in German football.

handball events

In handball, there are also some big events in 2022 and 2023 that will make fans’ hearts beat faster. These include, above all:

  • European Handball Championship 2022
  • and the World Handball Championship for Men in 2023.

2022: Handball Championship for women

The former takes place from the 4th to the 20th of November this year. Three countries are hosts: Slovenia, Northern Macedonia and Montenegro. This is something of a novelty. Previously, the tournaments took place in a maximum of two countries, often only in one country, most recently in Denmark in 2020.

Norway is defending champion. As with the last handball EHF EURO, 16 teams line up. The preliminary round schedule for the German team already exists. The games will take place on November 5, 7 and 9 this year.

Opponents are in the same order Poland, Montenegro and Spain. Interested fans can still secure tickets online, which are valid for all of today’s matches and are quite affordable at prices of 20 and 25 euros. Of course, travel expenses and accommodation must also be paid.

2023: Men’s Handball World Cup

The next world handball championship for men will take place in Sweden and Poland. The period is 11 to 29 January 2023. A total of 32 teams will take part in this tournament – twice as many as at this year’s European Championships for women.

Denmark is defending champion. Experts rate the German national team’s chances of winning the title as rather small. Most recently, the team from Germany was able to secure the title in 2007. In 2021, the team finished in a disappointing 12th place. However, the team has been rebuilt since the last World Cup, giving many fans hope for a better position.

Sporting events in other sports

In addition to handball and football, there are other sports where some exciting events will take place in the coming months. These include, but are not limited to:

  • the current Formula 1 season
  • as well as various tennis tournaments.

The current Formula 1 season

The current Formula 1 season promises a lot of excitement. Earlier this year, Ferrari had taken on a specific role as favorites for a close championship match with Red Bull and reigning world champion Max Verstappen.

Then the latter could win a whole series of races. Nevertheless, there is still the possibility of a close duel for the title. After all, the season finale will not take place until November 20 in Abu Dhabi.

However, record world champion Lewis Hamilton and his team Mercedes have already written off the title. Compared to their previous successes, the performance so far this year leaves much to be desired.

From a German perspective, many fans root for Mick Schumacher. After a few problems and failures, he was able to put an exclamation point in qualifying for the Canadian GP in June and put himself secure a sensational sixth place online.

During the race, however, he had to park his car with engine problems. However, Schumacher has shown that World Cup points are definitely within the realm of opportunity, which certainly gives his fans hope.

Away from the racetrack, the premier class also offers motorsport fans a lot of exciting and fun things again this year. Lewis Hamilton, for example, protested against the ban on jewelry in the cockpit in a humorous but clear way.

Sebastian Vettel, on the other hand, drew attention to himself with some predominantly politically motivated actions. One of these protests resulted in a discussion of a special helmet design for the Canada race, which was ultimately not used. Those who follow the race series closely will definitely be able to look forward to a few curiosities in the second half.

Upcoming tennis tournaments

Tennis fans will not want to miss this year either. In the second half of the year, there are still a whole host of exciting and prestigious tournaments. The US Open takes place from August 29 to September 11 this year.

They are the last of the four famous Grand Slam tournaments after the Australian Open, French Open and now Wimbledon. In previous decades, German tennis legends such as Boris Becker and Steffi Graf won this competition – the latter even five times.

A well-known tournament takes place in Germany, more specifically in Hamburg, a little earlier: the Hamburg European Open. It is scheduled for 16.-24. July. Last year, Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta won the tournament.

For many tennis fans in Germany, the event is certainly a great opportunity to experience their favorite sport live at the top level without having to travel far and do a lot of organizational work.


Sports fans will have many opportunities to experience major sporting events in the coming months. For football fans, this includes the start of the new Bundesliga season and the World Cup in winter. Handball fans can look forward to this year’s European Championships for women and men’s world championships next year. Formula 1 fans will definitely be excited to follow the many races that are still taking place up to the season finale in November. Finally, tennis fans can also look forward to a few tournaments, of which the Hamburg European Open, US Open and Wimbledon are two well-known highlights.
