With covid-19 spreading like wildfire again especially in Florida the bubble site for NBA, MLB and MLS I am having doubts the Raptors, TFC Impact and Whitecaps and Blue Jays will be playing this year. Even NFL will be at risk with 90 players per team at training camps probably similar number of coaches staff ect.. and trying to have 80,000 fans at a Chiefs game in Kansas City or Green Bay good luck with that. NHL might be better served having both hub cities in Canada this summer.

The major four leagues can survive off solely TV viewership. The NFL for years has had the bulk of revenue money come from TV.

More gate driven leagues that rely more on ticket sales will feel the pinch.

i mean as a health and safety issue I don't think it will get off the ground as a hub with those states so infectious and the staffs so much larger than a ufc card with no fans.

Is MLB talking about Florida in the same way the NBA and MLS are? I haven't followed closely but I thought the plan was for MLB to play at their respective home fields. Even to use their minor league complexes for training camp isn't really necessary since there are no minor leagues this year. They can get in their drills and workouts at their home stadiums if need be for the couple weeks before the season would start if Covid makes the spring sites too risky.

It's not like Florida MLB teams actually have people attending anyway.

The Marlins had ~10,000 in attendance per game in 2019.

The Rays had like ~15,000.

Last I checked MLB was still negotiating with the MLBPA on a best route forward after the entire process was nearly scuttled by the owners.

MLB has closed all spring training sites in Florida and Arizona and MLBPA has stopped CBA talks with MLB due to covid outbreak and NFLPA has now asked all players to stop all group workouts of players and in NCAA football now at least 30 LSU football players in quarantine
