When it comes to staging, which sports events do Brits think look the best?

In a recent YouGov poll, British sports followers picked the Wimbledon Championships as the best presented sports property in the world. The YouGov study asked British sports fans and followers which sporting events they think are being presented to a high and low standard.

The Wimbledon Championships, the oldest tennis tournament in the world and often regarded as the most prestigious too, scored a net 53%. Rooted in British sports history, the heritage of the Championship, held at the All England Club in Wimbledon, London since 1877, likely impacts the public’s positive perception. It also continues to be the only major tennis tournament still played on grass.

In a close second, 50% of the public picked the world’s foremost multi-sport event – the Olympic Games. While the Premier League recorded a score of 48%, it is closely followed by another blue-riband sporting event, the UEFA Champions League.

The FIFA World Cup comes next, with a score of 43% – the same score that the FA Cup recorded.

These properties are followed by the Men’s Six Nations Rugby Championship at 42% and Formula One (F1) at 39%. In the ninth spot is the Rugby World Cup with a score of 37%.
