Here is a list of the major sporting events for the year 2020. Due to COVID-19 there has been major upheaval on this sporting calendar, many major events have been cancelled or postponed, and changes are happening regularly. Not every sporting event can be listed here, though we have tried to include all the big sporting events of the major sports, mostly the international senior competitions.
Major events for this calendar year include the ICC World T20 Cricket tournament for men and women, Winter Youth Olympics, the IWAS World Games as well as the usual annual events.
Many events have been postponed until 2021, such as the Tokyo Summer Olympics, Invictus Games, the Euro 2020 Football tournament.
