The spread of the coronavirus led to anywhere between a two and three month delay for most major sporting events around the world, and although some have come back a little sooner than others, it seems the stage has been set for many to return on a wider scale – although there may be further disruptions within the US as the coronavirus continues to be heavily present and now the ongoing protests could cause delays – luckily for fans however a lot of European sporting events are back on track – we’re also seeing the betting industry set to recover as some of the best ones here are also gearing up for the big return.
Formula 1 – The queen of motorsports is set to come back really soon and it has many fans extremely excited as we may finally get to see some of the changes that were implemented for the start of the 2020 season – some had been changed back to the 2019 ruleset due to the coronavirus and how it may be difficult for some teams to adjust as the season schedule has changed so much. We have already seen some motorsports return through the likes of NASCAR, but with so many shakeups coming in F1 over the next few years, we could be in for some extremely exciting racing as the grid will be shaking up a lot.
British Racing – Not the first to return after we have seen some races in Germany and France already, but British racing is set to return very soon with the Royal Ascot kicking things off. There had been a lot of back and forth between whether or not the event would take place, especially after the Cheltenham event at the end of March had come under fire as it had taken place a day before lockdown measures were put in place and also led to a number of fans contracting the virus – to compensate for fans not being at the event however the Ascot organisers have already confirmed that they will be increasing the number of races on the schedule.
European Soccer – Football fans have already been greeted with a solid start to football returning as the Bundesliga get things underway to great success with two weeks of exciting games for fans – a few more of the biggest European leagues are close by too as Spanish football is the next to get underway, with the Premier League in the UK and Serie A in Italy close behind. Unfortunately there will be no French football as the league had been cancelled prematurely due to the coronavirus, but fans will have something to watch soon enough as the Champions League is set to see play again in August – whether or not these French teams will be at a disadvantage as they’re unable to play will be seen in time, but at least there is a packed schedule over the coming few months as the biggest leagues look to round out their seasons by August to prepare for the 20/21 season.
