The most complete agenda for top sport events around the world. May 18-24, 2021. Monaco GP, European Rugby, Domestic Football, PGA Championship, Boxing, Esports...

Week Preview

For the first time in a long time the Indy 500 and Monaco Grand Prix will not entirely clash, although we will have the Indy 500 Bump Day that sets the grid for next week and the F1 race on the same day. NASCAR will also be interesting as they visit the Austin Formula 1 racetrack for the first time.

European Rugby will see its Championship Final be decided between two French teams: Stade Rochelais and Toulouse. La Rochelle will make their Finals debut while Toulouse won back in 2020.

In Association Football we will see several Championship definitions this weekend: Real Madrid needs to win if they want to beat Atlético de Madrid for the Spanish La Liga. Atlético are two points ahead.

Italian Serie A has been decided for Inter Milan but the Coppa Italia Final will be plaid between Atalanta and Juventus. Both teams will also define if they will qualify for the next UEFA Champions League, to which AC MIlan and Napoli are also contenders.

French Association Football will decide two titles. Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain will play the Coupe de France Final and then they will try to win the Ligue 1, where Lille is one point ahead of PSG and three ahead of Monaco going to the last matchday.

It is rare to see a fully unified weight class in boxing but Josh Taylor (ENG) and José Carlos Ramírez (USA/MEX) are set to unify the four major belts plus The Ring Magazine titles in the Super Lightweight Division.

Iceland will have its big sporting day of the year receiving esports’ Valorant Stage 2 Masters and hosting the Final of the League of Legends Mid-Season Invitational.

The Giro d’Italia continues, now without Caleb Ewan (AUS), who retired, but still with former Tour de France Champion, Egan Bernal (COL), who leads after a full week.

In North America, the NBA has started its “Play-in tournament” games and Bowling will have its first PBA Tour Major, the USBC Queens and Golf will also have a Major, the PGA Championship.

The NHL has already started its playoff matches while the Ice Hockey World Championship will start in Latvia, including NHL players whose teams have been eliminated from competition.

Skateboarding’s Dew Tour 2021 will serve as a Tokyo 2020 Qualification Event. Canoe, Kayak and Triathlon will also have Olympic qualification tournaments.
