For sports fans to follow their teams through the good times and heartbreak, investing hundreds of hours a year enjoying, indulging in the game, is the biggest thing ever. Even when their teams aren’t playing, it’s hard for them to resist watching others play.

Sports really is a way of life. So much so, that the very thought of a one-week getaway can be grounds for panic. Thinking about somehow avoiding spoilers and recording games can be enough to make you want to skip the trip completely. Not so fast there yet. Everyone needs some time away from their regular schedule to relax and recharge. And what better time to enjoy a great vacation than the one in the offseason that comes around with a huge void to fill. 

As long as you pick the right destination, you can enjoy a great vacation while immersing yourself in luxury sports hospitality. Head to one of these top sporting destinations, and you’ll see what we mean. You may even get a chance to attend the famous hospitality events of these cities, which definitely beats watching teensy-weensy figures run around on the television screen.

London-England

London has too much to offer from a tourism standpoint. There’s Stamford Bridge, the Emirates Stadium, the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, the London Eye. The list goes on and on, to the extent that you could spend weeks in London without seeing everything. 

But why not immerse yourself in sports fandom, escape the scintillating life and give rest to your feet? If you want to delve into the culture of England, attend a soccer game at the home grounds of Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, and Chelsea. That too, all within the city limits.

Barcelona-Spain

Catalonia’s capital, Barcelona, is famous for its enchanting blend of art nouveau and gothic architecture and hospitality management companies, making the city, a firm favorite for corporate getaways. But when you have captured those insta-worthy snaps in front of the Basilica de la Sagrada Familia and Picasso Museum, there are must-see events at a different kind of cathedral. A cathedral of sports!

Barcelona is home to the greatest soccer team on the planet, FC Barcelona. And even if soccer isn’t your thing, watching a match at the famous Nou Camp stadium should be on every sports enthusiast list. 

Toronto-Canada

Being one of the major attractions in Canada, Niagara falls invites millions of visitors each year. What most people don’t know about the falls is that they are only a couple of hours drive from Canada’s biggest sporting city, Toronto.

Toronto has something for every sports fan around the world. Love baseball? Catch a Blue Jays game? More of a hoops fan? How about a taste of the nation’s favorite sport, hockey? Toronto is also home to the Maple Leafs. If you are still not satisfied, the hockey hall of fame in Toronto is there to amuse you. And there is no better way to meet the locals than by joining in on an important evening of their favorite local team. Game on!
