There's a huge year of sport ahead nationally and internationally - and this week's Observer is helping you plan what you can see and when.

We have a full-page sporting calendar for 2019 in the paper containing all the essential dates and details you will need.

It starts with the BDO darts world championship - which begins this Saturday - and runs right through to the Presidents' Cup golf in Australia at the end of the year.

There's all the big football and rugby dates plus, of course, details of the summer's Ashes Test schedule.

Don't miss the Chichester Observer series - out on Thursday morning - for your calendar.
