There’s plenty of top sporting action for fans to enjoy over the next 12 months, with a host of top events taking place during 2018.

Football takes centre stage in the summer as Russia hosts the World Cup, but winter sports and golf provide two other major attractions this year.

Read on to find out more about the tops sports events to watch in 2018.

The World Cup, Russia: June 14 – July 15

Five-time winners Brazil are strongly fancied for success in Russia, but reigning champions Germany are the ante-post favourites to win the tournament.

Spain, France and Argentina are also prominent in the betting, while the likes of England, Belgium and Portugal could all make their presence felt.

Hosts Russia kick-off the tournament against Saudi Arabia at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, with the final taking place in the same stadium during the middle of July.

Winter Olympics, South Korea: February 9-25

Scheduled to take place in PyeongChang, the Winter Olympics attracts the finest exponents of cold-weather sports from across the world.

Competitions will be staged at 13 venues, with ice hockey, figure skating and bobsleigh the most popular events for sports fans.

Have fun at the casino with a bonus code before wagering on any of the events and keep an eye on new sports like big air snowboarding and freestyle skiing which should be exciting spectacles.

Wimbledon Tennis Championships, England: July 2-15

The Wimbledon lawn tennis championships clash with the World Cup, but the event won’t struggle to produce headlines during the early part of July.

Swiss star Roger Federer is chasing for his ninth men’s singles title at Wimbledon, but he will face stiff competition from some of the sport’s next generation of players.

In the women’s event, Serena Williams is bidding for her eighth singles title as she bids to overtake Margaret Court’s record of 24 career Grand Slam successes.

The Ryder Cup, France: September 28-30

The Ryder Cup is scheduled to be staged on Europe’s mainland for only the second time in its history during September.

France’s Le Golf National will host the biennial match on its beautiful L’Albatros course and Team USA are marginal favourites to retain their title.

The USA recorded a comfortable 17-11 victory over Team Europe at Hazeltine National Golf Club back in 2016, but the likes of Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose will be doing all they can to wrestle the trophy back.
