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 around the globe were canceled or postponed. Some leagues and tournaments were forced to cancel, others paused with the hope of restarting, but all had to adjust one way or the other.
As the world continues to navigate the pandemic, many sports leagues that paused in March have since created a plan to restart found a secure way to carry out their season. For example, the NBA and NHL had “bubbles” for players to live in. In other sports, fans don’t seem to be permitted at many events and new health protocols have been put in place.
