Tallahassee, Florida. Florida is poised to be a place to restart for professional sports leagues, just like Arizona, when the game resumed after a new coronavirus stop.
“One thing I’ll probably do, this week, is welcome all professional sports to practice and play here,” Florida Gov. Ron de Santis told a news conference Wednesday. “Now, we don’t necessarily need fans.”
Arizona Gov. Doug Dussey said a day earlier that his state is open to free games for spectators in all the big games starting Saturday.
“There have been reports that he wants to keep his season in Major League Soccer in Orlando. Do it. We want to keep you here, “said Republican de Santis, like Dusi.” We want to play basketball again. We want to play Major League basketball. And I think the message is that our people are hungry to get some life back into their lives. “It’s an important organ. So we want to be able to do it. I think we can do it safely.”
The opening day of the MLB was again postponed from March 26th. Half of the 30 teams have taken spring training in Florida, and the MLB plans to use their spring training ballparks to prevent them from playing at their regular season homes. .
Desantis said, “We have events, UFCs, these and other things.” There’s a charity golf event at Juno Beach on Sunday. It’ll be on NBC at the Seminole Golf Club. “”
The NBA, NHL and MLS have been disrupted by epidemics and are trying to devise plans to end their asons.
“All of these professional sports are welcome in Florida. As we have seen, this may not be the case in every state in this country, ”de Santis said. “And what I’m going to say to the league commissioners is, ‘If you don’t let them work in a place like that, we’ll find a place for you in the state of Florida because we think it’s important and we know it can be done safely.’ “.
