It’s Christmas week and that can only mean one thing: thousands of people will be rushing to complete their shopping.
If you are still in need of gift ideas for your nearest and dearest who are sports fans, we at The Sportsman have put our heads together to come up with some ideas to aid you in your last-minute quest.
If someone you know is massively into their golf then there won’t be a much better gift than a ticket to the Betfred British Masters. Once again it will be held at The Belfry in Sutton Coldfield on their famous Brabazon Course. Held over four days in June/July, the event gives the recipient something special to look forward to in the New Year. Tickets start at £30 from day one for general admission.
The greatest show on turf returns to Cheltenham racecourse in March and the four-day spectacle keeps getting bigger each year. It is an event that if you or your loved one have not attended, you should definitely try. Whether it be for the love of horses, the gambling, the drinks or the dressing up, there is something for everyone at Cheltenham.
Prices start at £50 for the Best Mate enclosure from day one.
If your other half or other family members are into their rugby league then look no further. The Betfred Super League Grand Final is the pinnacle of the rugby league season and the most recent finale at Old Trafford was a roaring success. With atmosphere, quality on the pitch and hopefully a team other than St Helens winning the thing (unless you are a Saints fan, of course), then this could be a spectacular gift this Christmas.
The 2023 Grand Final is being held at the Theatre of Dreams once again and tickets are priced from as little as £15.
Football fans are in love with retro gear and if you are in search of old school football shirts in good condition, then look no further than Classic Football Shirts. Whether you are looking for shirts or training wear for English clubs, European clubs, South American clubs or international teams, they are bound to have something for you.
There is a variety of prices for their items depending on how rare it is. One thing is for certain, you will find yourself getting lost on their website because there is so much to choose from.
Everyone has been enjoying Gary Neville's The Overlap series in which he speaks to sporting stars about everything from their careers to their interests away from sport. He is heading out on the road again for a live tour alongside Jamie Carragher and Roy Keane for some more dates in 2023 in London, Liverpool and Manchester. Those who have attended shows in the past have said how good the show was and this could be another excellent gift this Christmas.
Prices vary depending on venue and availability.
