2016 : A great year for sport

This year is truly a bumper year for sports fans. With two major events (Euro 2016 and the Olympics) taking place in 2016, this is a year for celebrating sports of all kinds.
So, to help you plan your sporting year ahead, here is our selection of the top sports events around the world in 2016 that are not to be missed.

Rio de Janeiro - Rio 2016
http://www.rio2016.com/en

From 5th to 21st August, all eyes will be on Rio de Janeiro, as the Brazilian city hosts the world’s top athletes for the long awaited Rio Olympic Games. The first ever Olympics to be held in South America, the Rio Olympics follow hot on the heels of the World Cup, cementing Brazil’s reputation as a sporting giant. Among the most exciting events is the 100 meters; the world will hold its breath as history is, perhaps, made. Will Usain Bolt be able to win another three gold medals this time? The Judo should also be very exciting, with Teddy Rinner on a quest for a new triumph. And with the city of Samba hosting the Olympics, there is sure to be truly spectacular opening and closing ceremonies. Book your Golden Tulip hotel in Rio de Janeiro to be at the heart of this historic event.

Paris, Marseille, Lyon, Lille - Euro 2016

A revolution has taken place in the football world as the UEFA Euro 2016 will see 24 teams taking part, with matches played between 10th June and 10th July 2016. For the first time since 1984, France is to host the tournament. From Paris to Marseille, via Lyon and Lille, the big French cities will live and breathe football for a whole month. The world champion, Germany, will certainly be watched very closely, but France will no doubt be hoping for a great performance in front of an enthusiastic crowd at home. However, there are sure to be a few surprises as the tournament develops.

Dubaï - The Dubai World Cup 2016

Known as the “world’s richest horse race”, the Dubai World Cup is a highlight on the global sporting calendar. This hugely exciting event will bring together the world’s best horses, jockeys, trainers, and a glamorous international crowd, keen to pick a winner. On 26th March 2016, the winner of the top race will go home with over 10 million dollars, and the total prize money for all the races amounts to over 30 million dollars. Book your hotel in Dubai to be in the stands for this race, cheering your chosen horse home at this exciting event.  

Amsterdam - The Amsterdam Marathon
Olympisch Stadion 2, 1076 DE Amsterdam

A very popular marathon on the running circuit for its flat, fast course, the Amsterdam Marathon is also one of the prettiest. On 16th October 2016 the race will take runners alongside the famous canals and past some of the city’s most iconic monuments, including the Rijksmuseum and the Rembrandt Museum. Book your hotel in Amsterdam to achieve your personal best in this race, or just to be there to cheer on the runners on an Autumn day in the Dutch capital.

Rio de Janeiro - Paralympic Games

With the Rio games barely over, it’s time for the Rio Paralympics, taking place from 7th to 18th September. While there may be less media coverage for this event, the Paralympic Games are just as exciting as the Olympics, with personal stories that are perhaps even more inspiring. A total of 22 different sports are represented, from basketball to badminton, football and golf. Stay in a hotel in Rio de Janeiro to watch some of the emotionally charged and thrilling sporting achievements first hand, in the brand new facilities built for the Rio 2016 Olympics.
