The events just keep on coming in the summer of 2018. After a jam packed June, we see a ton more big sporting events that demand your attention in July.

The biggest of these events has to be the World Cup finals taking place this month in Moscow. The only sad thing about this one is that we have to wait four years for another World Cup.

We also have one of the biggest events in tennis this month as Wimbeldon kicks off on July 2nd. The lawn at Wimbeldon is always so beautiful and the tennis so competitive.

That’s not all. We also have some great Formula One races, a Manny Pacquiao fight, Miocic vs. Cormier in UFC, NHL free agency, NBA free agency, the MLB trade deadline, NASCAR races and so much more.

Take a look below at the complete sports calendar for July 2018.


The 2018 MLB All-Star game takes place on July 17th from Nationals Park in Washington, DC. It is the first time the All-Star game has been in the nation’s capital in nearly 50 years. It should be a star-studded affair as always.

The MLB trade deadline takes place on July 31st and it is one of the best trade deadlines in sports. There is always plenty of action as teams look to rebuild or make that final push towards the playoffs. Based on the way the standings are tighly packed right now, this could be an interesting one.
