Texas, California governors say pro sports can resume in June without fans

Two major states are ready to host pro sports without fans within the next month.

On Monday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott and California Governor Gavin Newsom both separately announced that their states will allow sporting events to be hosted without fans and with other proper precautions starting at the beginning of June.

These announcements come on the heels of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo making a similar announcement earlier in the day.

Things will still be very different. There will not be fans for a while, and major precautions will be taken to ensure social distancing and proper hygiene. However, this is a very big deal, especially since some of Newsom’s previous comments made it sound like this was unlikely to happen anytime soon. It paves the way for pro sports leagues to put together plans to reopen responsibly and stage meaningful games, even though there won’t be any fans.
