A couple weeks ago, I shared this post on sports industry trends that I expect will be accelerated by the effects of the pandemic. Here are some relevant links of interest:
- Youth Sports. Here’s Tom Farrey, director of the Aspen Institute’s Project Play on the future of youth sports.
- Gambling. Virus could lead more states to OK sports, online betting.
- The further polarization of partisan politics as related to sports. This is the one I want to be the most wrong about and the current circumstances driving this forward are heartbreaking. Athletes’ Outpouring on Civil Unrest Rekindles Kaepernick Debate in N.F.L. ‘Stick to sports?’ No chance. Activist athletes are playing an important role right now
