For those who are avid sports fans, the past few months have been tricky. Almost every sporting event has been cancelled from football to golf and tennis. Of course, as things start to return to normal, many of our beloved sporting events are returning to our screens and pitches.
To give you an idea of what you can enjoy, we thought we would let you know about which sports are coming back and when.
What Has Already Returned?
Back in May, the German Bundesliga was the first glimmer of hope that football fans had. Many fans around the world who had never paid attention to German football before were very excited to see some live football. Just last week, we saw the return of La Liga with matches between Sevilla and Betis.
German football isn’t the only sport to have returned earlier than others. We have seen some golf tournaments take place with special precautions amongst other sports that don’t require an audience.
Premier League Football
This week, we see the return of the English Premier League which many football fans have been looking forward to for a while now. This league was postponed for 100 days but now, the first match taking place will be between Aston Villa and Sheffield United. The postponed league promises to pack in 92 games just 40 days before the league ends in July. For football fans, this is a dream, especially with so many weeks without a single match.
In the world of tennis, there have been some serious cancellations which have affected players and fans. For the first time since World War II, Wimbledon was cancelled, and this caused a lot of shock. Not to worry though as tennis is making a comeback in the form of the US Open. This tournament is set to take place from 24th August until 13th September. However, if you are planning on attending, you won’t be in luck as this will be taking place behind closed doors with no fans permitted.
Another sport that took a break for a while was golf but more recently players have been taking to the course. This week, we can see the PGA Tour head to South Carolina where some of the best players in the world will be coming up against each other. Some of the famous golfers that you can expect to see include Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Justin Rose. If you are a fan of golf and have been missing it, make sure to tune into this tournament.
If you are a basketball fan, then you’ll be glad to hear that the NBA is making a comeback. On June 21st, the players are set to report to the home market and the transaction window will open the next day. Then, on June 30th, the training camps will begin. While there hasn’t been a date set for the official start of the season just yet, the training camps starting up again indicate that it might be sooner rather than later.
