Many sports during Christmas holidays will stop, but if you are a sport fan you don’t have to be worried because there are many sport events to watch on TV. The majority of football championships (Serie A,Ligue one,Bundesliga and Liga), Formula 1, Moto GP and tennis tournaments stop in this period. Instead, Premier League, Serie B, rugby, basketball and horse racing continue.
The most important day is the Boxing Day. It is a festivity celebrated on 26th December in the UK and Commonwealth nations. On this day there are a lot of important sport events, especially in the UK. Premier League, the most important English championship, challenges for a round.
On 26th December there is the “King George VI Chases” a horse racing event that takes place in the hippodrome of Kempton Park. For importance it is the second horse racing in the UK.
In our opinion it would be better if all the sports stopped, so the players could stay with their family. To be a footballer is a dreamy job, they earn a lot of money, they become stars but don’t they deserve some quality time with their families at least at Christmas?
