Sports Today April 2, 2020

No sports today that we are tracking. There were two Belarus Premier League Reserve Tournament games but those are lower level games. Tomorrow play resumes in the Belarus Premier League. The continuation of play and more importantly the continued attendance of fans at stadiums has been a very controversial topic. Many have criticized this action but at the same time sports starved media outlets have rewarded the league with TV deals. Here is some of that coverage:

Where are Sports?

With the global pandemic of Covid-19, sporting events across the globe have been suspended. At all levels. We want to chronicle what sports are still being playing around the globe today and hopefully chronicle the return of sports in the coming weeks and months. We are the folks behind ScoreStream and we think that conversation around sports is an important part of the fan experience so we want to help bring that back as our beloved sports return.
