The Aussie Sporting Events You Cannot Miss in 2019


If there's one thing Aussies are passionate about, it's their sport. From Sydney to Perth, wherever you head to when you head Down Under, you'll be bound to come across a significant sporting event that the whole Australian nation has taken time out of their day to watch.

A few of these sporting events stick out in the calendar more so than others, though, simply because of how important they are to Australian culture and folklore. To find the Aussie games, matches, races, and tournaments that you cannot afford to miss in 2019, make sure to read on.


April - May

The Australian summer might be over, but that doesn't mean that the Aussie sporting action slows down. There are plenty of events for you to get stuck into throughout the months of April and May, the first of which being Polo in the Valley, which can be found at the Polo in the Valley website (6 April). Whether you're a fan of polo or not, this staple in the Australian sporting calendar will provide you with an afternoon's worth of pleasurable viewing as you watch competitors hook, bump, and shoot their way to success.

According to the World Rafting Championships website, from 13-20 May, you will be able to watch over 400 quality rafters descended upon the Cassowary Coast in a bid to crown themselves the world's very best. Sandwiched in-between that event, taking place on either the 18th or 19th of May (date yet to be confirmed), is the pinnacle of the Australian soccer season, the 2019 A-League Grand Final. Whether you call it soccer or football, if you're a fan of the round ball sport, you'll be sure to love this one.


June - August

Winter may have come for Australia by this point of the year, but, still, the quality sporting events live on. Throughout these months, welcome rugby league, Australian rules football, and rugby union.

The Wallabies are taking on the All Blacks in August, too, which is a grudge match that's always worth watching. Even if you live half the world away and are only able to watch the latest chapter in this rivalry unfold on your TV, thanks to Unibet, nothing is stopping from getting a slice of the action, be it through casino games or sports betting. Using their online sports betting tools, you will be able to bet on the outcome of these two grudge matches - you'll be that invested, you'll actually feel like you're in the stadium!


September - December

The weather will begin to warm again as the calendar year of 2019 draws to a close, and the sporting action will heat up as a result. First of all there's the Australian rules football AFL Grand Final, which takes place at the world famous Melbourne Cricket Ground on 28 September. Then there's the rugby league NRL Grand final (6 October), followed soon after by the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix (25 October), as mentioned on Moto GP.

Whether you're a fan of Australian sports or not, you cannot afford to miss all of the sporting events listed above. From polo in April to horse racing in November and everything else in between, you will be sure to find something that gets your blood pumping.
