Personal Savings Blog | June 2018 – Savings goals: what sporting event would you save up for?

With the 2018 World Cup kicking off this month, football fever is taking hold.

With tickets changing hands at hundreds if not thousands of pounds, this got us thinking about the role savings can play in helping to fund trips like this and which sporting events we would save up for.

Let’s face it, supporting your favourite team or player can be a fairly expensive business. You not only have to pay for the ticket itself, you also need to account for any travel and accommodation costs, which tend to spiral around the time of the event.

While there are a number of options that you could choose to pay for a sporting trip, savings can help. If you are a big sports fan you could consider setting up a separate savings account, depositing a regular amount to save towards a particular goal.

We appreciate that the beautiful game doesn’t appeal to everyone, so we thought it would be interesting to find out which sporting event you would save up for. Would you like to watch the tennis on Centre Court at Wimbledon, jet over to Monaco for the Formula 1 or cheer on your team at the rugby World Cup in Japan next year?

We would like to invite you to take part in our quick poll, which is just for fun, takes less than a minute to complete and is completely anonymous. We will share the results with you.

Take part in our poll and let us know what sporting event you would save up for.
