If you are tired of seeing mostly empty stadiums during mid week Maction well, now you can think it’s an idea ahead of it’s time.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, who is at the forefront of dealing with with fight against the coronavirus, a fight which shuttered sports this spring, says the only way professional sports will happen in the summer is by holding events without fans in attendance.

This COULD spread into the fall as well.

And even if life is returning to normal come August many people’s attitudes towards sports has not. 72% of Americans polled by Seton Hall University’s Stillman School of Business said they would not attend if sporting events resumed without a vaccine for the coronavirus.

Most experts agree we are at least a year out from a viable vaccine.
