Attendees love sports, so what better way to reward them then with an incentive trip to a major sporting event?
Here are five sporting events coming up in the next year that already have set dates and locations, making it easy to plan for well in advance—months or even years out.
The U.S. Open closes out the summer tennis season as the fourth and final tennis tournament in the Grand Slam, which also includes the Australian Open, the French Open and Wimbledon. Every year, the tournament takes place at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens, N.Y., starting on the last Monday in August—this year, Aug. 28—and extending into the first two weeks of September.
With dates announced three years in advance, planners can create the ultimate horse-racing event at the Breeders’ Cup World Championships at Del Mar Racetrack in California. Held Nov. 3-4 this year, groups will find a wide range of entertainment, dining and even fashion at this prestigious event.
Feb. 4 marks next year’s Super Bowl Sunday, or what some may call an unofficial American national holiday. Super Bowl LII will be held in Minneapolis at its new U.S. Bank Stadium, where attendees can gather to watch the National Football League championship game and maybe even learn a thing or two from the half-time show.
March Madness concludes the college basketball season each year with the NCAA Basketball Championship. That pinnacle game is always held on a Monday, and next year’s will take place on April 2 at San Antonio’s Alamodome—conveniently located next to Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.
Each year, the Masters Tournament kicks off the golf season as the first and most intimate of the four major championships in professional golf. Annually held the first week of April at the Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Ga., planners better start booking now for next year’s April 5-8 dates.
