2021's summer of sport

Sports fans are in for a treat this summer when the European Championships, Wimbledon and the Olympics (hopefully) all take place in the space of just two short months. Whether you’re a football fan, tennis lover or enjoy the sheer spectacle – those opening and closing ceremonies! - of the Greatest Show on Earth, there will be so much to look forward to.

As a company formed in Britain, Tech21 is delighted to see England, Scotland (what a grudge match 21 June at Wembley promises to be!) and Wales all flying the flag at the delayed Euro 2020 tournament, although we know there is going to be equal amounts of heartbreak and celebration – not to mention VAR-led frustration - over the course of this feast of football. Who do you think will be crowned Euro 2020 champions (note they’ve not updated it to Euro 2021) on 11 July?

Although it appears the era of the ‘Big Four’ of tennis might soon be coming to an end – age and injury catches up with us all eventually – we’re sure the elite of men’s tennis including Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer will have something to say about the new batch of stars, including Dominic Thiem and Stefanos Tsitsipas, as they aim to lift the trophy in centre court come July. We’re also interested to see if Simona Halep can pick up where she left off in 2019 or if Serena Williams claims yet another Grand Slam victory. There’s also the chance there’ll be a new champion – how about Ashleigh Barty or Naomi Osaka? Of course, Wimbledon fortnight gives us all the chance to indulge in strawberries and cream – and maybe some Pimm’s to wash it all down.

At the time of writing, the fate of the Olympics is very much up in the air but if it goes ahead, we can’t wait to see the world’s best athletes competing for the Gold medal in a wide array of sports across track, field and so much more. The Olympic Games have seen some of sport’s most iconic moments – who can forget London 2012’s Super Saturday or Usain Bolt breaking every sprint record going? – and we hope to see more of the same at the 2021 Games, even if in unusual circumstances.

There’s nothing quite like sport to get the emotions running high and anything from a last-minute goal to Match Point is enough to get the adrenaline pumping and have you lost in the moment. But what about your poor phone or iPad as you celebrate with free abandon or throw it in the floor in sheer disgust? Tech21 has this covered with a vast range of phone cases (including iPhone 12 cases and Note20 cases) and iPad cases that offer tough multi-drop protection – whatever the score. Whether you’re celebrating a victory or crushed by a defeat, Tech21 has the winning formula.
