April 2021 Sporting Events Calendar

April is always one of the best sports of the year with nearly all of the major sports in action. There is Premier League, La Liga, MLB, NBA, and NHL in action this month. Not to be left out, the NFL brings us the NFL Draft and we also have one of the biggest golf events of the year, The Masters.

Of course, April also sees the conclusion to the NCAA and WNCAA College Basketball tournaments. These events are a highlight of the sporting events calendar for the year and they always take place on the first weekend of April. Also taking place in April is WWE’s WrestleMania.

WWE’s biggest event of the year will actually take place in fans at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. April will also see the UFC go back in front of live fans with a huge show on April 24th. Speaking of UFC, former fighter Ben Askren is going to be stepping into the boxing ring with Jake Paul this month. That should be something.

A ton of great sports to get to. Take a look at the April 2021 Sporting Events Calendar below.
