Game On: A Guide to the Hottest Sports on TV this Summer
25 July 2023
We’ve waved goodbye to Wimbledon for another year, but there’s still plenty of sports action coming to our TV screens this summer. Here’s a rundown of the top sporting events you won’t want to miss.
Women’s FIFA World Cup
20 July – 20 August
The largest ever FIFA Women’s World Cup has just kicked off and will see 32 teams competing in Australia and New Zealand throughout the month-long tournament.
Two-time defending champions, the United States, will be fighting to become the first country to win three World Cups in a row, but the competition will be fierce – not least from England, who will be looking to build on their victory at the Euros last summer.
Catch all the action on either the BBC or ITV and make sure to mark your calendar for the final on 20 August, which will be shown on both BBC One and ITV1.
1 August – 27 August
The British rain may have washed away England’s Ashes dreams, but there’s plenty more for cricket fans to watch this summer. The Hundred will return for its third year on 1 August.
There will be eight city-based teams in each of the men’s and women’s competitions, featuring some of the best international and domestic players. Sixteen live games will be shown on the BBC, including the opening-day double-header between Rockets and Brave, and both finals.
Netball World Cup 2023
28 July – 6 August
Celebrating its 60th anniversary in Cape Town, South Africa, the Netball World Cup runs from 28 July to 6 August.
Sixteen teams will compete, including a face-off between England and Scotland in Pool B. Fans will know that Australia and New Zealand have traditionally dominated the competition. In 2019, New Zealand secured victory over 11-time winners Australia by a single point! Will 2023 be the year of change? The BBC will have live coverage of matches from 31 July, including the final.
Rugby World Cup 2023
8 September – 28 October
Wrapping up another fantastic summer of sport, the Men’s Rugby World Cup 2023 will start on 8 September. With new international eligibility rules coming into play, the competition is sure to provide gripping viewing. Watch all the action on ITV.
