Here is the full schedule and sports calendar for India in 2023

The year 2023 will be a crucial one for Indian sports as athletes will look to book their tickets for the 202 Paris Olympics.

Apart from the Asian and World championships in different sports, all eyes will be on India as they host the FIH Men’s Hockey World Cup in Bhubaneswar and Rourkela.

The postponed Asian Games is also scheduled to take place in Hangzhou, China come September with the AFC Asian Cup football tournament being moved from China and now will be played in Qatar.

The four tennis Grand Slams will again begin but without the star names like Roger Federer and Serena Williams.


PV Sindhu, Lakshya Sen, HS Prannoy and Kidambi Srikanth will be focus too in badminton, especially given India’s historic Thomas Cup triumph in 2022.

Indian track and field, like Neeraj Chopra, Avinash Sable and Eldhose Paul, will be key players to bring more glory in athletics for India, with the World Athletics Championships in Budapest, Hungary in August being the headline event.
