Sport and Liverpool are synonymous – whether it’s our two famous football clubs, as home to Open Championship golf courses and world’s leading steeplechase at Aintree; from boxing, athletics, swimming – sport is in our DNA and it offers the perfect place to host sports events.

From the Vitality Netball World Cup named as the 2019 Sport Event of the Year at the Sport Industry Awards 2020, to being a host for the Rugby League World Cup 2021, and the home of the World Gymnastics Championships in 2022 - Liverpool has it all. World class venues; a walkable city with accommodation on your doorstop; great road, rail and air links; a city that has diversity, inclusion and legacy at the heart of all its events; a world famous waterfront and world heritage city that oozes culture and passion and of course our famous scouse welcome.
