August 2019 Sporting Events Calendar

August is always the unofficial end of summer as well as the the beginning and end of some sports seasons. For instance, the final major of the tennis season starts in August with the US Open while the first few games of the college football season are also played during August. As one sport ends, another always begins.

August also brings us one of the big cycling events of the year with the Tour de Spain. We’ll also have some big NASCAR races this month, but just one F1 race with the Hungarian Grand Prix.

We also have one of the biggest golf events of the year with the Tour Championship starting on August 22nd. This month is also host to one of the biggest WWE events of the year, SummerSlam, and then later this month their rival promotion AEW will hold All Out.
