THE SPORT LIVERPOOL TEAM DELIVER, SUPPORT AND BID
FOR MAJOR SPORTS EVENTS FOR LIVERPOOL AND LIVERPOOL CITY REGION.
Sport and Liverpool City Region are synonymous – whether it’s our three famous football clubs or our rugby league champions St Helens. As home to Open Championship golf courses at Royal Birkdale and Royal Liverpool or the 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.
In recent years the region has hosted the highly successful Vitality Netball World Cup in 2019, the World Gymnastics Championships in 2022 and The Open Golf Championships at Royal Liverpool in 2023. Looking forward the Open Golf Championships will return to the region in 2026 at Royal Birkdale and Everton’s Bramley Moore Stadium has been named as one of the nine host cities for the EURO 2028 to be hosted by the UK and Ireland.
Liverpool City Region has it all. World-class venues; a walkable city with accommodation on your doorstop; great road, rail and air links; a region that has diversity, inclusion and legacy at the heart of all its events; a world-famous waterfront, a city that oozes culture and passion and of course our famous Scouse welcome.
