Best Of February Sport

February is a hectic month of some of the best sport you can imagine. Superbowl, Six Nations and the return of the Champions League. Here's what you have to look forward too.

The Super Bowl

The popularity of the NFL has grown in Ireland. If you haven't had the joy of watching this epic sport my friend you are missing out. However, there's no better way of getting into American Football then tuning into the spectacle of the Superbowl This year MVP Patrick Mahomes is back for the third time in four years as his Kansas City Chiefs take on the Philadelphia Eagles in what is sure to be a nail-biting affair.

The Six Nations

With it being a World Cup year, the Guinness Six Nations takes on even more importance. Ireland head into the championship ranked 1 in the world. Andy Farell will be looking for his first Grand Slam in Ireland but can they topple the opposition? Only time will tell.

The Champions League Knockout Rounds

Europe's premier footballing tournament returns for the round of 16 and our first glimpse at what sides likely have the ability to lift the vaunted trophy later this year. There are some gigantic ties to look forward to, with some of the best players ever to put on a pair of shinpads, lacing up their boots again.

Europa League Playoffs

It might not be the Champions League, but there are some matchups tasty enough to make Thursday evenings all about football again. This year's Europa League looks like it's going to be the most competitive in years.
