After the initial outbreak of the CoronaVirus, it appeared that hard-hit states like New York, California and Texas would not have sports resume for the foreseeable future.

However, that soon may be shifting back in a positive direction.

The Governors for all three states: New York, California, and Texas have all spoken publicly encouraging professional sports organizations to return to business without fans in the stands.

Here are the three key quotes from each of the governors:

“I think this is in the best interest of all the people and the best interest of the state of New York,” – Andrew Cuomo, Governor of New York State

“Sporting events, pro sports, in that first week or so of June without spectators and modifications and very prescriptive conditions also can begin to move forward,” – Gavin Newsom, Governor of California./

“Professional basketball, baseball, car racing, football, golf, softball, and tennis leagues may apply to the Department of State Health Services for approval to hold professional sporting events in Texas. These events may take place on or after May 31, 2020. The professional sporting events may not have spectators physically present on the premises.” – Greg Abbott, Governor of Texas.

 

Both NASCAR as well as the PGA, UFC and Bundesliga have already returned to live action since nearly all sporting events were shut down in March, leading to massive television ratings and betting numbers across many online sportsbooks, including FoxBet.
