As we enter the New Year it’s time to look ahead at what sporting events 2019 has in store, and how Passion For Sport will be getting in on the action!
Cricket World Cup (30 May-14 July)
At a time when English cricket is at the peak of it’s ODI powers, the world is coming for the 2019 World Cup in England & Wales. PFS will be keeping an eye on proceedings and related cricket content may feature on our Planet Sport programme.
Africa Cup of Nations (07-30 June)
Undoubtedly the biggest footballing competition across the continent, AFCON always provides football fans with much entertainment, surprise packages and world class performers. This time around, it is still to be confirmed which country will be hosting the tournament, after the recent news that Cameroon were stripped of the rights. Egypt or South Africa seem to be the final replacement options (announcement coming 9th Jan). We aim to be at AFCON 2019, where we will be reporting for our Football Africa programme, to keep fans of African football up to date and to get their views on developing stories.
Rugby World Cup (20 Sep-02 Nov)
2019 is the year that just keeps on giving. As we hit Autumn, we will be sending a small team out to Japan for the RWC, where we will be delivering daily shows for our Rugby Podcast. Our time in Tokyo will be spent interviewing players, reporting on developing stories, plus bringing you insights into the local culture and initiatives that are running alongside the tournament.
Our in-house Productions
Alongside these flagship events, we will of course continue to bring you weekly sport content across our three productions, Planet Sport, Planet Sport Football Africa and the Planet Sport Rugby Podcast.
Do come on the journey with us, 2019 promises to be a memorable year of elite sport!
