  • Kimberly Fields // Wimbledon.

  • Laura Froelich // I’ve been extremely fortunate to have checked so many off my bucket list, but there are a few that are still on there like the Ryder Cup.

  • Libby Geist // Wimbledon! The U.S. Open is my favorite event every year and I’m dying to get to Wimbledon to compare. Have the feeling they’re a bit different.

  • Hannah Gordon // I love to visit football stadiums and learn from what others do well. My first year covering UCLA football in college, we played at Alabama, but I was the junior writer on the beat so I did not get to go. Going to a game at Alabama has been on my bucket list ever since.

  • Shauna Griffiths // Old Trafford for a Manchester United match.

  • Catie Griggs // World Cup.

  • Amy Howe // Madison Square Garden.

  • Allison Keller // The Winter Olympic Games — I am a huge Lindsey Vonn fan. I’ve watched her documentary “The Climb” on Red Bull TV several times with my daughters. I would love to watch her compete in the 2018 Games.

  • Morane Kerek // FIFA Men’s World Cup is pretty high on the list.

  • Gina Lehe // Although I worked there and have witnessed many incredible games, if/when the University of Arizona finally makes it to the Rose Bowl game, it will be almost as spectacular as the Cubs making the World Series!

  • Lauren Cooks Levitan // An NCAA Final Four national championship game that Duke wins!

  • Adrienne Lofton // I’ve been there, but every time I’m able to get to an Olympic opening ceremony, it’s what I always look forward to.

  • Jodi Logsdon // FIFA World Cup — men’s and women’s. It is a bucket-list item to be able to be surrounded by the intensity and emotion true soccer fans have for their national teams, while also getting the chance to watch some of the best athletes in the world perform on their sports’ greatest stage. It would be a dream to devote a month to following the tournament, attending in person matches from group play all the way through the final.

  • Samita Mannapperuma // FIFA World Cup.

  • Beth McClinton // Beijing National Stadium, Bird’s Nest.

  • Stephanie McMahon // Since WWE is a live event business at our core, I’ve had the opportunity to travel to stadiums all over the world … but haven’t yet had the chance to visit Melbourne Cricket Ground in Australia.

  • Marisabel Muñoz // Wimbledon. Tennis was a sport we grew up watching, and my daughter is now in the USTA junior program. It’s on our bucket list.

  • Erika Nardini // New England Patriots 2017 home opener.

  • Elizabeth O’Brien // The Olympics.

  • Nzinga Shaw // 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

  • Renata Simril // Olympic Games opening ceremony (plan on attending Summer Games in Tokyo 2020 and so looking forward to Los Angeles 2028 opening ceremony in new Rams/Chargers stadium).

  • Shauna Smith // Lambeau Field.

  • Keisha Taylor // Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

  • Renée Tirado // FIFA World Cup.

  • Renee Washington // Wimbledon.

  • Lynn White // The Kentucky Derby. The excitement of the race, coupled with the gentility and glamour of hats and mint juleps on a sunny spring day, puts it at the top of my list.
