    Sports Travel – Follow Your Favourite Team To Global Glory

    This is a guest post by Alfred smith. If you would like to write for NiharsWorld, check our guest posting guidelines.

    For true sports fans, there is no greater expression of your passion than to follow your team across the world to see them compete (and hopefully win) in foreign nations. No matter what your preferred sport or team is, organised touring companies can help you get the absolute most out of your trip.

    Sport is a truly international phenomenon and there are few experiences which compare with travelling abroad to see your team play against a foreign opponent. Not only is it a great chance to express your passion and enthusiasm for your team and the sport but it is also a chance to see the world and see how other people support their teams and players in their own national fashion. Although football is a particularly international sport, both rugby and cricket lend themselves very well to sports touring trips, following the national sides in their escapades abroad, either for one-off matches or for whole campaigns.


    Rugby is one British sport that has been very enthusiastically adopted elsewhere in the world. On a close scale, the Six Nations offers a chance to see the six biggest rugby countries in Europe take on one another in some truly thrilling matches. English fans can travel, not only to other parts of the British Isles, for games against Scotland, Wales and Ireland but also onto the continent for clashes with France and Italy. Further afield, the British and Irish Lions engage on numerous great sports tours to other rugby-playing parts of the world, such as Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. The Rugby World Cup is another good chance to see the national teams in action.


    Cricket is perhaps one of the most popular remnants of the old British Empire and still has a powerful unifying effect on the former colonies and the UK itself. The Ashes, which is contested once every two years between Australia and England, is one of the oldest sporting rivalries in the world and engenders passion and excitement like no other cricket event worldwide. When it is hosted Down Under, it offers the perfect opportunity for English fans to travel to Australia, see some of the best cities south of the Equator and witness some outstanding cricket. Other important cricketing destinations include India, Pakistan and the West Indies, all of which have embraced the Imperial sporting legacy and now exist as formidable opponents and great travel destinations all as one.

    These two are by no means the only sports that are suitable for tours; there are some major tennis and golf tournaments across the world, both of which see fans travel great distances to see their favoured athletes or teams compete. Formula One and, to some extent, horseracing have a similar international following.

    Altogether, if ever there was a need for an excuse to travel, you would be hard-pressed to find one better than sport. It allows an insight into different cultures and the atmosphere of excitement is one that is not lightly forgotten, plus there are many great destinations on offer.
