[Get Exclusive Tips on our Patreon, Ad-Free

January is one of the biggest times in the world of football. Not only do we have plenty of bowl games and the 2021 College Football Playoff National Championship, but we also have the final two weeks of the NFL season as well as the NFL Playoffs kicking off. It all leads to the Super Bowl on February 13, 2022, at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.

The NHL and EPL are also in action with a lot of good games. One of the absolute highlights of the month should be the NHL Winter Classic on January 1st featuring the St. Louis Blues taking on the Minnesota Wild. It’s pretty crazy to think they’ve been doing these for so long, but this is the first time that Minnesota will get a home game in the Winter Classic.

A lot of big NBA games are on the schedule as well with a potential Finals match-up between the Bucks and Warriors being one of the highlights.

The Winter X Games, a couple of World Darts Champions will be crowned, New Japan’s Wrestle Kingdom, and WWE Royal Rumble all take place this month as well. Tennis will also return with the ATP Cup followed by the Australian Open. A ton of great sports on the list this month.

Let’s take a look at the full sports calendar for January 2022.
