Sporting Calendar 2017:
After looking at the tight schedule of the majority of the sports with back to back events it seems like a both BOON and CURSE to players, spectators and overall that GAME in particular. BOON because day in and day out its a bonanza for fans and broadcasters as rare is a week when their particular sporting event of interest is not on the show.CURSE as too much of everything brings in stagnancy and ultimate demise, and the majority of them are on that path of self-destruction unless sanity is restored.

Here is the schedule of some of the MOST POPULAR sporting events for 2017.This year may not have an OLYMPIC or WORLD CUP  to make it extra special but what’s in store is more than enough to keep the ball Rolling.

It’s DANGAL time thanks to the stupendous showing of ,the sportstars in last couple of Olympics, the sports is seeing unprecedented interest.

Pro wrestling league 2 was one of the many to suffer due to demonetization and had to be postponed, when will it be held only time will tell.


A forgotten sport which has seen the biggest comeback if team sport is taken into consideration, such has been the hysteria and craze that two pro league seasons were held last year itself.

Due to the world cup held in India late last year too, the organizers want to give a break so that too much in too little time doesn’t kill which is understandable.
