Will the premiership title race be over on Boxing Day?

Who will win the King George VI chase?

Will we have blue skies?

Well, we don't know what the odds are for all these, but we do know that a bit of sporting activity can be just the thing to blow away the cobwebs over the Christmas holidays.


With a full football fixture list this holiday season, you will need to plan carefully what you are watching, whether it's live or on the TV. You can check the full fixtures list to help you plan your viewing.

This yearís premiership fixtures include Charlton v Arsenal, Chelsea v Fulham, Liverpool v Newcastle and Man Utd v West Brom. But who knows what will be happening by then? It is hard to predict what the tables will be looking like by Boxing Day, but rest assured there will be some great games to watch. Remember to plan in advance though, check the kick off times and if you are relying on public transport, do check train and bus timetables in good time.

Boxing Day Races

at the races Boxing Day promises to be a great day for racing fans whether armchair or at the rails. Even more planning is needed for a day at the races, but once you are armed with binoculars, the sporting papers and maybe a little nip in the hip flask, it can be a great day out. We canít predict a winner for you, but we can point you in the right direction for other information. To locate your nearest horse racing fixture over Christmas, try Go Racing to get details for Boxing Day races and other holiday dates. .


If football and racing donít get your pulse thumping, how about some physical action on the slopes? For non-stop ski ideas, see our ski & board information. If you want something a bit closer to home though, a taster or refresher session at your nearest ski dome or dry ski slope could be just the ticket for a post Christmas workout!
