Here’s a rundown of the top sports to look out for in 2022.

NFL

The New England Patriots have been one of the more dominant NFL teams over recent seasons and are likely to be among the top contenders in 2022. Jalen Mills, DB, is this year’s most impressive player and is sure to lead the Patriots to victory.

The Dallas Cowboys, Atlanta Falcons, and Pittsburgh Steelers are also teams to watch out for in 2022.

Major League Baseball

Sports fans regard the New York Mets as one of the top MLB teams for two main reasons. Firstly their great pitching rotation over recent seasons, and secondly, pitcher Miguel Castro looks set to continue dominating other batters in 2022. He’s been playing well ever since he joined the Mets in 2019.

In MLB, other top teams to watch out for include the Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers, and Houston Astros.

NBA 

A few teams to look out for in 2022 include the Brooklyn Nets. Led by Kyrie Irving, who is being hailed as one of the best players today, it’s likely that the Brooklyn Nets will feature prominently in upcoming seasons. The Golden State Warriors are also a team to look out for, especially with Steph Curry, Ray Allen, and Reggie Miller making up the team’s roster.

Other top teams to watch out for in 2022 include the Miami Heat, Atlanta Hawks, and Los Angeles Lakers. With so many fascinating events on the horizon, it’s looking like a great year ahead for sports fans.

Soccer

The Champions League (UEFA) is the most elite soccer competition globally, with teams from all over Europe competing for the title. The tournament is in its 30th season and is typically played between September and May, with many of the games being broadcast live on television.

With over 1,000 professional soccer teams across Europe, there are many top-tier soccer leagues for fans to enjoy throughout the year. The English Premier League is one of these and features some incredible talent, including Harry Kane. While he’s been playing professional soccer since 2014, his natural ability and stamina are not showing any signs of slacking off.

The rules outlined by FIFA governing international soccer results show that individual players are not allowed to be transferred between teams until January of 2022 at the earliest. This means that deals agreed before this date will still be valid. Dates to watch include the 2022 FIFA World Cup – which will take place in Qatar and feature 32 teams worldwide.

The US Open

The US Open is the most prestigious tennis tournament worldwide. Held annually from August to September, it’s a Grand Slam event watched by millions of viewers worldwide. 

The top American male and female players typically dominate proceedings – with Serena Williams being a notable exception after her hiatus from the sport and her injury problems means there will be no likely return for Williams in 2022.

Tennis at Wimbledon

The Wimbledon Championships is another major tennis tournament every year in London, England. Wimbledon is one of the oldest sporting events around – first starting back in 1877.

Nowadays, tennis greats from around the world consider it one of the most important tournaments in their calendars. Ladies day is celebrated on the third Thursday of the tournament and is a popular event with female spectators. 

The men’s final is traditionally played on the last Sunday of the championships. The 2021 winners include the Men’s top player, Novak Djokovic ,and ladies champ, Ashleigh Barty. 

Formula One

Lewis Hamilton did not pull off a win in what would have been his eighth Formula One World Championship title. That means the next F1 season is even more exciting with all eyes on Max Verstappen. Lewis Hamilton, the Mercedes superstar, has been incredibly successful in the last few years, winning back-to-back titles. 

Next year, he’ll be up against some tough competition from rivals, especially Max Verstappen and outsider Lando Norris.

The 2022 Formula One season is set to be a fascinating one, with new rules being introduced that are designed to make the cars faster and more challenging to drive. It will be interesting to see how these changes affect the race for the world championship.

Ice Hockey U20 World Championships

The 2022 season will kick off in style with the IIHF Ice Hockey U20 World Championships. This international ice hockey tournament is played by players aged 20 or younger and will occur in Denmark.

The U20 World Championships is expected to include teams from all over the world, including defending champions Finland who will be looking to win their third title in a row. Canada is also expected to be a strong contender, as they often are in international ice hockey tournaments.
