We should be prepared for further impact in the sports world, and so this is my easy to understand guide to the key things to know about Coronavirus and some key points for athletes and sports fans to consider.

Covid-19: economic impact on sports

With the rising cases of the pandemic coronavirus, sporting activities around the world stands cancelled or postponed. The Indian Premier League which is the crown jewel of BCCI if cancelled will cost the cricket board over 4000 crore which is roughly over half a billion dollars. The Euro 2020 football tournament is postponed by a year but the cost if cancelled could have been over $630 million dollars. Formula 1 has cancelled just 2 races of the season but the entire season could cost the management over $300 million or ₹2200 crore. The rest of the NBA season is already called off and that has an impact of over $450 million which is ₹3300 crore. But the biggest blow will come if the 2020 Tokyo Olympics get cancelled. The Japanese Government is all set to lose over $13 billion which is little over ₹9 lakh crore.

Covid-19 Impacts On Sports | Coronavirus Latest Update | Impact On Olympics Games

Covid-19 Impact on Sports

Timeline history of Coronavirus affecting on Worldwide Sports events.
This Pandemic start from Chines city Wuhan and spread across the world now and Affecting every thing Who come Infront of this.

Coronavirus now Affected very badly to every sports events like MLB NBA Football Cricket Rugby F1 and very hard to Olympics Games.
An agency from USA estimated 60 billion of loss worldwide only in Sports.

New research has found that the sports industry could lose as much as US$61.6 billion in missed revenues by the end of 2020.

According to the Two Circles study, the sports industry was originally on course to hit US$135.3 billion in total income, which would have been a 4.9 per cent increase on the US$129 billion generated in 2019. However, with leagues and federations scrambling to mitigate the damage following the suspension of nearly all sporting events in mid-March, it is estimated that only 53 per cent of scheduled events will go ahead this year.

Summer Olympics
It was announced that the Summer Olympics would be postponed to 2021, still to be held in Tokyo. Six days later, thebInternational Olympic Committee(IOC) in Lausanne rescheduled the date to twelve months from the original scheduled dates of 24 July to 9 August 2020 to 23 July to 8 August 2021.

The qualifying round of the World Baseball Softball Confederation sanctioned 2021 World Baseball Classic, scheduled in Tucson, Arizona, United States in March 2020 was postponed on 12 March 2020.

On 11 March 2020, the National Basketball Association (NBA) suspended its season after Utah Jazz player Rudy Gobert tested positive.

On 13 March, the Board of Control for Cricket inI ndia (BCCI) announced that the start of 2020 Indian Premier League will be postponed from 29 March to 15 April. On 16 April BCCI suspended the tournament indefinitely due to the pandemic.

On 13 March 2020, FIFA announced that clubs did not have to release players to their national teams during the international windows of March and April 2020, while players also had the option to decline a call-up without any consequences. FIFA also recommended that all international matches during these windows be postponed, though the final decision was left to the competition organisers or member associations for friendly matches.

Many of the domestic European leagues were impacted in February and March 2020. After various fixtures were rescheduled or played behind closed doors, Serie A was postponed on 9 March 2020. On 12 March, La Liga and the Segunda División were suspended for at least two weeks after a Real Madrid basketball player tested positive for the virus, which resulted in Real Madrid's footballers being put in quarantine.
The Eredivisie was also suspended (it was officially declared abandoned on 24 April with no champion awarded), while Ligue 1and the Bundesliga followed suit shortly afterwards (Ligue 1 would eventually end on 27 April after the French Prime Minister ordered all sporting events to be cancelled until 1 September, with Paris Saint-Germain being declared champions)

On 10 March, the English Premier League match between Manchester City and Arsenal, due to be played the next day, was postponed after a number of Arsenal players made close contact with Olympiacos owner Evangelos Marinakis, who had tested positive for coronavirus.


How is the CORONAVIRUS COVID-19 affecting sports

The Coronavirus has massively affected the sports world since spreading to Europe and North America. The sports calendar has been hit hard by the virus which originated in Wuhan, China.

A variety of sports events have been cancelled or postponed due to the viruses outbreak. Outside of Asia, Italy has been the hardest-hit country in the sports world due to the coronavirus.

Six Nations rugby matches have been postponed and Serie A soccer games will be played at empty stadiums. The idea is to keep people away from the venus and stop the spread of the virus.

Even the Euro 2020 soccer tournament’s games in Italy have been put under threat of cancellation or being moved as Italian towns have gone into isolation. In terms of sports betting, the coronavirus has limited some of the sports events bettors can wager on. In addition, using Italy’s Serie A as an example, the dynamic of events will be changed. This weekend’s matches in Italy will see games played behind closed doors, therefore, fans will have no impact on the outcomes of matches. Home stadium advantages will be null and void for the most part. There is a belief that the Summer Olympics in Tokyo will be a casualty of the Coronavirus.

Already the Formula One Chinese Grand Prix has been cancelled and the race league’s first three events are under threat of cancellation. According to Forbes, $85 million in revenue could be down the toilet for Formula One. Other events could be axed as well due to the threat of the Coronavirus and its potential spread around the world. The betting industry will most likely be hit very hard by the disruption in sporting events. Moreover, sports bettors who make part of or all of their living from sports betting will be affected.

So, how bad is the Coronavirus?

According to Worldometers, there are now more than 85,600 reported cases of the virus and it is growing. Meanwhile, there have been nearly 3,000 deaths. They also reported nearly 40,000 closed cases of the virus have been reported with individuals recovering.

With the possibility of a pandemic occurring, it makes sense that so many sports events are under threat. More could be postponed and more cancelled this year.

Professional football leagues around Europe are gearing up for a return to action following the novel coronavirus stoppage, but experts insist resumption of games poses a real risk of death even with precautions.
Sports can resume once testing, tracing and isolating is widely available but I don't know if now is the right time.
There are worries about what that means for their families and friends that they engage with. They are worried very much that they represent something in society that might give a bad influence.

The Science of Sport Podcast: The Covid-19 Sporting comeback edition

In this episode, Mike Finch and Prof Ross Tucker discuss all aspects related to sport and covid-19. Now that sport has begun its return, albeit with empty stadia, we explore how the return to sport mirrors society's responses to the disease, the key principles underlying safe sport, and some of the more interesting second and third order consequences of playing sport. These include the risks of injury to players who are rushed back too soon, and the effect of empty stadia on home ground advantage. You'll learn about acute and chronic workload and injury risk, the effect of motivation on sports performance, and a whole lot more in a far-ranging conversation on the stuff that happens after covid-19!

COVID-19 Shakes the Sports World Documentary

The COVID-19 pandemic brought the sports world to an unexpected grinding halt. As a former collegiate athlete, I couldn't help but wonder how current college and professional athletes are dealing with such a dramatic end to their seasons and in some cases to their careers. I decided to reach out to three current and former University of Oklahoma athletes hoping to create a successful documentary that shares each of their unique experiences during this difficult time. This documentary will showcase how COVID-19 not only affected the sports world, but also how it affects all athletes in differing ways depending upon what sport they play and where they might be in their career.

With the pandemic causing our nation to take measures such as social distancing and self-quarantining, this documentary will be for the majority filmed through Zoom and personal B-Roll shots filmed by each of the interviewees. I believe that even though filming the documentary this way is not standard, it will add to the films artistic direction by showing how we are having to communicate for the time being. We are living history right now and when people watch this documentary in the future, they will get a sense of the measures we had to take in order to keep living our lives.

My goal for this documentary is to inspire others, not just athletes, to not let this current pause on life completely stop them from where they plan on going. Although this pandemic has altered the lives of many so abruptly, we must push forward with hope.
