The Weekend of Sports​

Sports fans will be spoilt for choice this weekend (9th - 10th July) with major competitions coming to an end, what will you be watching?

If you’re not watching any sport this weekend, are you planning on living under a rock? This weekend is probably the most sports-packed two days of the year, including the best of tennis, UFC, Formula 1 and football.

What’s on? When is it on? Which channel?

To help you plan your sport watching accordingly, we thought we would compile a little timetable for you, to make sure you don’t miss out on anything.

Saturday 9th July

2pm - Ladies’ Wimbledon Final

Live on BBC1 from 1pm

The action starts on Saturday with the ladies’ Wimbledon final. This year Serena Williams and Angelique Kerber go head to head for the title. Williams might be a six-time champion but when she last faced Kerber in January in the Australian Open final, she was defeated, and the German grabbed her first Grand Slam title. 

11.30pm to early hours on Sunday - UFC 200

From 11.30pm on BT Sport

Main event won’t start until 3am.

For UFC (that’s Ultimate Fighting Championship) fans, it was looking to be a very entertaining watch as Daniel Cormier was to take on Jon Jones, but unfortunately he failed his drug test, so in his place, Anderson Silva will fight, with just two days’ notice.  

Sunday 10th July

1pm – 3pm – 2016 F1 British Grand Prix

Live on Channel 4 from 11:55am

Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports F1 from 12noon

For all motor heads, this will be the highlight of the weekend. If you’re lucky enough to get a ticket prepare yourself for an action packed day at Silverstone, with the gates opening at 6am guests will have a schedule of events taking them through to 7pm, and that’s including a concert.  Watching 52 laps of pure adrenaline, who out of the Mercedes team will take first place? Well, if the first practice session is anything to by, Hamilton finished quickest with Rosberg following shortly after.  

2pm – Gentlemen’s Wimbledon Final

Live on BBC1 from 1pm

Again, the finalists have yet to be decided but we’re hoping it’s a Murray final. With Djokovic now out of the running, does he have a chance? Or, will Roger Federer claim the title for the eighth time? While you ponder that one, here he is on his way to training, with Jimmy Carr, in the all-new F-PACE. He laughs a lot, surprisingly.

8pm – EURO 2016 Final

BBC1 and ITV 1 from 7pm

And now for the grand finale - it's France Vs Portugal. After beating World Champions Germany last night in the Semi-Finals, France might be en route to winning the Euros 2016 but Portugal might surprise us all with their star player Cristiano Ronaldo. Who do you think will win?
