It's the date of the Euro 2016 final. It's also the date of the landmark UFC 200 event that will see Conor McGregor face off against Nate Diaz on a blockbuster card. It's British Grand Prix weekend.
It's Wimbledon finals weekend, the one weekend a year that people who don't really care about tennis - care about tennis.
Then on Sunday, it's the Munster hurling final and the Connacht football final.
Can you imagine waking up on that Saturday to watch some Super Rugby, then sitting down for the Wimbledon final. After that Fury and Klitschko will take you into the UFC card. As if that day wasn't enough, there's more Wimbledon and GAA finals just before the Euro 2016 final at 8pm.
It's only three months away, get ready now.
