With temperatures rising across the world, summer is well under way. But what is going on in the world of sports and what sporting events should you clear your diary for in 2017? No matter what your poison is or where you are, there is a whole host of fun, exciting, and nail-biting events for you to get involved with this summer. If you are looking for an extra layer of excitement with your viewing, you could even consider placing a few bets on the outcomes of various matches, or even athletes performances. If you want to be really wild, you could consider placing a few accumulator bets where your jackpot depends on you winning multiple events, and while watching live streaming sports on premium websites such as Free live streaming it would be best to use a betting calculator to help you work out your winnings!

Whilst Wimbledon is now underway, there is still time to get involved. Running until 15th of July there are plenty of opportunities to mix your Pimm's, get some strawberries, and settle down in front of the television to watch some of the world's greatest tennis players battle it out for the Wimbledon Trophy. Favourites to win this year's tournament include Andy Murray who has not had a great start to the year, but it is hoped he will pull out all the stops to beat off stiff competition from Roger Federer and with a GBP 31 million prize pot, you can bet that the competition will be tough!

Tour de France

This year's cycling extravaganza is the 104th edition of the Tour de France. Kicking off on the 1st July in Dusseldorf, it will finish on the Champs-Elysees stage in Paris, 23 days later. With 198 riders from 22 teams, it is set to be an exciting race. Favourite to win this year is Chris Froome followed by Nairo Quintana, Porte, and Fabio Aru. But of course, it is impossible to accurately predict such a thing until the rubber is on the tarmac and the race is underway!

In the 63rd instalment of the tournament, the 2018 UEFA Champions League kicks off with the qualifying rounds between June and August, and the proper competition starting on the 12th September. Real Madrid have two wins under their belt and will be vying to make it a hat trick, but until the series gets underway, it is very difficult to predict. With lots of great new talent cropping up across Europe, it is sure to be a great tournament.

Melbourne Cup
