Attending luxury sports events can be a pricey extravagance. BAC Sport offer packages to some of the world’s most prestigious sporting events – those once in a lifetime experiences that are on everyone’s bucket list. Here are our top five luxury sports events for the indulgent traveller. The green, green grass of Augusta Golf has gained a reputation for being extremely elitist, what with its exclusive golf courses and private clubhouses that shut their doors to the outside world. It’s not only playing golf that’s seen as indulgent, but also being a spectator at high profile golfing events. The Masters, played in Augusta each year, holds the title for the most prestigious event in the golfing calendar. Every year the small town of Augusta in Georgia, U.S.A., turns from a colonial city into an extravagant town of excess and luxury. Clients can enjoy watching the masters of golf at the Augusta National Golf Course, or choose to play in some of the finest golf courses in the U.S. and mix both spectator sport with participation. The restrictions on the Masters is what makes it so exclusive. It’s one of the few events that you can’t film, photograph or even Tweet about during tournament days. What happens at Augusta, stays at Augusta!     Big boxing bashes Perhaps unsurprisingly for a sport that carries so much risk, most of the big boxing events happen in Las Vegas.

A score to settle England will be eager to prove their dominance after a dramatic loss against West Indies in the World T20 final back in April. In a thrilling final over twist, West Indies’ Carlos Brathwaite smashed England’s Ben Stokes for four successive sixes to snatch a sensational four-wicket victory. Stokes was understandably distraught. Having had bad blood with the West Indies side before, he’ll no doubt be looking to settle the score in the Caribbean next year. Warming up for the ICC Champions Trophy England’s 2017 tour of the West Indies will serve as something of a warm-up for the ICC Champions Trophy in June next year. The squad’s performance in the West Indies is likely to be a major influencing factor in who gets selected to play in the Champions Trophy tournament. Whilst most of the side is relatively set in stone, it looks like there may be a few spots up for grabs. Controversy over Bangladesh tour England are currently touring Bangladesh, but one-day captain Eoin Morgan and opening batsman Alex Hales caused a stir by opting out of the tour because of security concerns. The England and Wales Cricket Board decided to go ahead with the tour, despite a heightened risk of terrorism. They offered players a choice over whether or not to come. But after making themselves unavailable for selection, Morgan and...
