    What are the 5 biggest sporting events in the world?

    In your opinion what are the 5 biggest sporting events in the world.....
    2 lists would be good, 1 for events held each year and then one for events like the olympics, world cups etc...

    yearly events:

    1 Tour de France (cycling)
    2 Wimbledon (tennis)
    3 Formula 1 World Championship (F1)
    4 World Series (Baseball)
    5 Champions league final (Football)

    other events:
    1 Olympics
    2 Football World cup
    3 Rugby World cup
    4 The Ashes
    5 Commonwealth Games

    of course these are a matter of opinion.

    good way to split it.

    On a general world scale, I'd say:

    yearly events:
    - Wimbledon
    - Champions League Final
    - FA Cup Final
    - British Open Golf
    - World Series

    non-yearly events:
    - Soccer World Cup
    - Olympics
    - Commonwealth Games
    - Rugby World Cup
    - Winter Olympics

    on a general Australia scale, I'd say:

    yearly events:
    - AFL Grand Final
    - NRL Grand Final
    - Boxing Day Test
    - Melbourne Cup
    - Australian Open Tennis

    non-yearly events:
    - Olympics
    - Rugby World Cup
    - Cricket World Cup
    - Soccer World Cup
    - Commonwealth games


    For me though;

    yearly events;
    - AFL Grand Final
    - Sydney Test match
    - Bledisloe Cup
    - Boxing Day Test match
    - Australian Open

    non-yearly events:
    - Cricket world cup
    - Rugby World Cup
    - Olympics
    - Rugby League World Cup
    - Soccer World Cup

    Ooh tough one. I guess :

    Yearly events:
    1. FA Cup Final
    2. Superbowl
    3. Champions League Final
    4. World Series
    5. Grand National?
    (plus) Wimbledon/Le Tour/F1? (not sure)

    Other:
    1. Olympic Games
    2. Commonwealth Games
    3. Football World Cup
    4 & 5. Winter Olympics/Ashes/Rugby World Cup/Ryder Cup? (again not really sure)

    I guess the main thing to go on is viewing figures and coverage(worldwide).
    My house is burned down but I can see the sky.

    Wouldn't the Six Nations rank more highly than something like the Zurich Premiership?
