The Great Sporting Tour

Major Sports Events 


In 2006 I had the brainwave to visit all 92 Football League Grounds, Test and County Cricket venues and Rugby League Clubs. For a while, too, I've been 'collecting' visits to Major Sporting Events and as some of these are difficult and expensive to get tickets for, I've included ones I'd done before 2006.

As with the other sporting tours, it's not just about a sporting event. It's a social trip - even my wife gets an outing here - and, of course, many of them are National Institutions. The other thing that's different on this part of the tour is that I've actually taken part in a couple of the events.
