Sporting Chance: The Must-see Upcoming Fixtures for all Sports Fans
It’s crunch time in the season for many of our much-loved local teams
Sunderland face Wycombe Wanderers at Wembley this Saturday for a place in the Championship after overcoming Sheffield Wednesday in the semi-final. The Black Cats have sold out their full allocation of 47,000 tickets for Saturday’s final, so the atmosphere is sure to be electric. Not got a ticket? Head to the fan zone in Sunderland to soak up some of the atmosphere.
Meanwhile, York City will host Boston United in the Vanarama National League North play-off final at the LNER Community Stadium, also on Saturday. And on Sunday, Leeds United will travel to Brentford hoping to secure their Premier League status, knowing that only a win will probably do. Tickets are still available!
Huddersfield Town are next up, heading to Wembley (on 29th May) to play Nottingham Forest. This all-important match will decide who will be promoted to the Premier League. Often billed as the most valuable game in English football, the Terriers will be looking to return to the top flight after a three-year absence.
Elsewhere, in the last home game of their season, Newcastle Falcons will take on potential Champions-elect Leicester Tigers at Kingston Park on Saturday afternoon and it should be a great game.
With the flat season in full swing, York Racecourse is the place to be for a mix of sporting, social and musical entertainment. Even if you’re not that into racing, you’re sure to enjoy the Tribute Weekend this weekend, or their Music Showcase Weekend on 22nd and 23rd July with performances from Madness and the Sugababes
Cricket fans will be looking forward to Yorkshire Vikings up against old rivals Durham in the Vitality Blast evening T20 at Headingley followed by the return match at Durham’s Riverside on 17th June. Tickets are still available for both games.
