Chelsea v Barcelona (Champions League) – 18 April 2012
Chelsea’s turnaround since Roberto Di Matteo took over from Andre Villas-Boas has been nothing short of remarkable. The Italian has led the Blues to seven victories in his nine games in charge since taking the Stamford Bridge reigns from the Portuguese coach, leading the Londoners into the FA Cup semi-finals and booking a mouth-watering last-four showdown with Barcelona in the Champions League. Chelsea’s controversial exit at the hands of Pep Guardiola’s men in the 2009 semi-finals will still be fresh in the mind of many of Chelsea’s squad ahead of the first leg at Stamford Bridge. With three-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi and company set to be on display, why not book your seat at what promises to be an enthralling European night at Stamford Bridge today?
Liverpool v Everton (FA Cup semi-final) – 14 April 2012
Any Merseyside derby makes for an enticing contest, but with a place in the FA Cup final at stake, this clash at Wembley has an extra edge. Liverpool will be looking to put their miserable run of form in the league to one side and give their fans something to cheer about, while David Moyes’ men would love nothing more than to set up an FA Cup showdown with either Tottenham or Chelsea at the expense of their local rivals. The Reds have got the better of the Toffees in the league this term, but a trip to Wembley is always sure to spark a hotly-contested clash. Book your seat at Wembley today.
Tottenham v Chelsea – FA Cup – 15 April 2012
Harry Redknapp’s Spurs appear to have recovered from their temporary blip in form that has seen them drop below Arsenal in the Premier League – and just in time for their FA Cup semi-final clash with London rivals Chelsea at Wembley. The Blues, meanwhile, have rediscovered the confidence that looked to have deserted them during Andre Villas-Boas’s doomed reign at Stamford Bridge. With an FA Cup final place against either Liverpool or Everton at stake, this London derby has all the ingredients of a thriller – so why not book your place at Wembley today?
British Grand Prix – Sunday 8 July 2012
British Grand Prix organisers have recently revealed that they have upped capacity in order to cope with a surge in demands for tickets for this summer’s race, underlining the popularity of the Silverstone event. This Formula 1 season looks set to be one of the most closely-contested to date, with defending double world champion Sebastian Vettel seemingly struggling to keep up the form that helped the Red Bull driver cruise to his second straight title last year. With McLaren duo Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button sure to relish the opportunity to perform in front of a home crowd, this race has all the ingredients of a thriller. Why not book your place at Silverstone today?
Wimbledon – From 25 July 2012
The most prestigious Grand Slam in tennis needs no introduction, and the famous queue for tickets highlights the demand for the third Major of the year at the All England Club. There’s nothing quite like the buzz of the first week of the tournament, when the likes of defending champion Novak Djokovic and five-time winner Roger Federer will get their campaigns under way. Show court tickets are notoriously difficult to come by, but World Ticket Shop still has plenty available, so why not book your place at the highlight of the tennis calendar today?
