Probably just a matter of time, an ever increasing number of European countries are either cancelling sporting events or holding them behind closed doors.
If the projected contamination rate for the UK follows the model it would be almost inconceivable to hold an indoor event of the magnitude of the POFW!
Im not surprised at the EBEL as it contains teams from Italy. Italy has gone from a handful of cases to 10000+ in just 2 weeks. If we follow the same pattern you can bet the play offs will be cancelled. The next 2 weeks will be crucial. Keep washing your hands people.
No rumours about 6 nations - games " postponed"
Sports bodies met yesterday at COBRA meeting again tomorrow.
Also there is a difference between indoor and outdoor sports venues
Even in US some changes made. NHL, MLB and NFL have reduced press access
Why the sarcastic comment then. All people are talking sense with respectable comments and you reply with an amateur football match being played at the weekend which will have no more than 50 people watching. Idiot
Are you honestly saying you are unaware of the likely cancellation of sporting events etc?
The UK is currently in the containment phase and as such it is not yet deemed necessary to ban such events , however within the next week or two we will be entering the Delay Phase and as such, social distancing, working from home, and the banning of big events, especially indoor events are a very serious consideration.
This is not rumour or my opinion, this has come directly from yesterday’s Emergency Cobra Meeting.
If we as a country don’t get a handle on this, neither Ely Rangers or Grange Quins will be able to put a team out in a few weeks time!
Now that bit is my opinion!
As this is a hockey forum it's worth getting our minds round today's White House briefing
Dr Fauci at the briefing quoted 99 - go where the puck is going not where it is
Health - beyond the hockey family (our own family not the least) - is the most important thing here
