Between Colosseum where the most barbarous battles were staged and televised ball games that bond families & friends with every home run hit, sports have come a long way to carve their place in our history. Every other year scores of new tournaments or championships are envisioned and decade-long leagues or opens have been organized so that “may the best individual/team win”.

Whether by a nose or by a mile, there's more to sports than winning: to have a shot against all odds, to push limits of your physical & mental abilities, to come out swinging when you're on the ropes or go for a Hail Mary when you're down and out, and to hit it out of the park in the bottom of the ninth.

The Super Bowl, World Alpine Ski Championships, Winter X Games, and the Masters, Kentucky Derby, NBA Finals, and Summer X Games are some of the most awaited sporting events in the United States in the first half of 2017. The French Open, Tour de France, African Cup of Nations, World Masters Games, UEFA Champions League, and World Track Championships are the key sporting events in 2017 around the world.

London will host the famous Wimbledon in July and IAAF World Championships in August. Women's Rugby World Cup, Tennis US Open, and IWF World Championships will be the major events towards the end of 2017. Let's take a detailed view of all the sporting events in 2017 shown month-wise:
