August 2005

In England, the FA Premier League kicks off a new season on the weekend of 13th/14th. The 2005/2006 Premiership Season will be intriguing, with Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United all fighting it out for top spot. Wonder who'll be grinning at the end of the season: Jose Mourinho, Arsene Wenger or Alex Ferguson. Or will Rafa Benitez have the last laugh after May's spectacular Champions League win in Istanbul?

Other major highlights of August's sporting programme come from Golf and Tennis, and both take place in the USA.

The fourth and final majors of both sports take place; from the 11th to 14th at Baltusrol Golf Club, Springfield, New Jersey hosts the 87th US PGA Championship, then the action moves from green to (hard)court with the US Open Tennis Championship at Flushing Meadows in Flushing, New York from the 29th (through to 11th September).

Athletics aficionados will look forward to the IAAF World Championships which take place in Helsinki, Finland from the 6th through to the 14th of September.

York Racecourse in the north of England hosts its annual Ebor Festival meeting in August from the 16th to 18th, the highlights being the Juddmonte International Stakes (16th), the Aston Upthorpe Yorkshire Oaks (17th), and the Victor Chandler Nunthorpe Stakes (18th). In the USA, racegoers look forward to the Arlington Million at Arlington Park, Illinois (13th), a key race in the World Series Racing Championship.

Cricket: England's 2nd, 3rd and 4th Ashes Tests against Australia at Edgbaston (Birmingham), Old Trafford (Manchester) and Trent Bridge (Nottingham) run from 4th to 8th, 11th to 15th and from the 25th to 29th, respectively.

In Cycling, there is the Tour of Spain (27th to 18th September), also known as Vuelta a Espana.

There is only one Formula 1 race this month: the Turkish Grand Prix from Istanbul (21st).

These are just some of August's highlights. Unfortunately, a full schedule is not available for the month of August. However, a full schedule, is now available for worldwide sporting events in September 2005.
