This year has been like any other because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and that includes the sports season. When the pandemic hit in March, sporting events world wide were canceled or postponed. Some leagues and tournaments were forced to cancel, others paused with the hope of restarting, but all had to adjust someway.
As the world continues to navigate the pandemic, many sports leagues that paused in March have since created a plan to restart found a protected way to carry out their season. As an example, the NBA and NHL have “bubbles” for players to live. In other sports, fans aren’t permitted at many events and new health protocols have been put in place.
