2024 will be a bumper year on Sky Sports with two T20 Cricket World Cups, thrilling title races, top tennis, every golf major and so much more...

Team Europe out to retain Solheim Cup

Europe successfully defended the Solheim Cup in Spain in September after an absorbing three days, recovering from 4-0 down after the opening foursomes to earn a 14-14 draw as home favourite Carlota Ciganda drained the trophy-retaining putt.

European captain Suzann Pettersen will lead her side once again in 2024 with the tournament moving to even number years to avoid clashing with the Ryder Cup.

Pettersen will be in charge in Gainesville, Virginia this time around as her team aim to make it two wins in a row on American soil, having triumphed 15-13 in Ohio in 2021.

Ireland's Leona Maguire has played a starring role in the previous two Solheim Cups, racking up 4.5 points out of five in the States and then three out of five in Spain, turning herself into the pivotal figure Ian Poulter became for Europe's Ryder Cup side for such a long period of time.

Maguire will look to make a similar impact in 2024 but a wounded America will be out for revenge.

Two T20 World Cups

There is a men's short-form World Cup in the West Indies and USA in June and then a women's in Bangladesh in the autumn, with England set to be among the favourites for both.

Jos Buttler's side endured a dismal 50-over World Cup defence in 2023, losing six of their first seven games, but won the last T20 version in 2022 and have some of the biggest hitters on the planet including Buttler, Phil Salt - who thumped successive centuries in the Caribbean in December - and Harry Brook. Not to mention a world-class leg-spinner in Adil Rashid and, fitness-permitting, pace ace Jofra Archer.

Heather Knight's women's team have not tasted T20 World Cup glory since the inaugural edition on home soil in 2009. However, after winning the T20 leg of the Women's Ashes and then securing a 2-1 series victory in India late last year, confidence will be high.

They possess match-winners in left-arm spinner Sophie Ecclestone, opening batter Danni Wyatt and all-rounder Nat Sciver-Brunt and have lost the fear of Australia they perhaps once had.

That said, when these tournaments come around Australia usually get the job done, winning the last three T20 World Cups and six of the last seven. Will their dominance on the big stage continue?

Title races set to go down to the wire

Could we be about to see the best Premier League title race in a generation? Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City are primed to battle it out, with Aston Villa and Tottenham remarkably also still in the hunt.

City are known for turning it on come the business end of the campaign, but Arsenal's improved squad has the experience of last season's failed tilt to fall back on, while Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool simply cannot be counted out.

Mark down Arsenal hosting Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium live on Sky Sports on February 4, and stay tuned to follow all the twists and turns that are sure to follow.

Much drama is also promised in the Championship, where leaders Leicester are on course for an immediate return to the top flight, but second-placed Ipswich have Southampton and Leeds chasing them down.

Whatever the outcome after 46 games, the guaranteed thrill of the play-offs - for the Championship along with League One and League Two - will play out live on Sky Sports, as will the Scottish Premiership finale.

Emma Hayes

Meanwhile, in the Women's Super League, leaders Chelsea are trying to claim a fifth successive title before head coach Emma Hayes departs to take over as USA manager.

With Manchester City and Arsenal both within three points as the midway point of the season nears, there is plenty of work to do for the champions.

All nine golf majors live

Sky Sports will once again be home of the majors in 2024, with all four men's majors and all five women's majors exclusively live.

Rory McIlroy will have another chance to complete the career Grand Slam at The Masters, where LIV Golf signing Jon Rahm returns as defending champion and Tiger Woods is expected to feature.

Brooks Koepka will look to become a back-to-back PGA Championship winner for a second time, having previously defended the Wanamaker Trophy in 2019, with Jordan Spieth likely to challenge again at Valhalla for his only missing major.

Martin Kaymer won the US Open when it was last held at Pinehurst and there will be plenty of Europeans hoping to follow in his footsteps, before The Open returns to Royal Troon for the first time since Henrik Stenson defeated Phil Mickelson in all-time classic final round.

World No 1 Lilia Vu was a two-time major winner in 2023 and will look to add to her tally, while England's Charley Hull will be hoping to go one better than her two runner-up finishes in majors this year.

The AIG Women's Open has added significance year as it returns to St Andrews' iconic Old Course and is also the final qualification event for Europe's Solheim Cup team, meaning it could be key in who features in Virginia.

Every Super League game live

The Super League is back in 2024 for what is bound to be another enthralling season - and for the first time every match will be live on Sky Sports as part of an historic three-year broadcast deal, starting with a blockbuster showdown between bitter cross-city rivals Hull FC and Hull KR on Thursday, February 15.

Tennis returns to Sky Sports

Tennis is in a great place going into 2024 with so many young rising stars winning the sport's biggest tournaments and some of the older players still able to compete against those who are more than a decade younger.

It could be the last season on the tour for Rafael Nadal, and maybe Andy Murray, too, so fans will not want to miss two of the best players from this century going for it in the latter stages of their careers.

Super Bowl LVII in Las Vegas

The most thrilling time of year for American Football fans is almost here.

With just a week of the regular season remaining, the playoffs get underway on January 13, with all roads leading to Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas on February 11.

The upcoming post-season looks set to begin as one of the most unpredictable for a long time, with no team having established itself as an overwhelming favourite.

Darts, darts and more darts!

If the World Darts Championship has dominated your festive period - and it has done for many - then do not fret about the tournament coming to an end on January 3 as the top tungsten comes thick and fast on Sky Sports this year, starting with the opening night of the Premier League in Cardiff on February 1.
