The lineup is a who’s who of some of the most influential policymakers, organizers and investors in the sporting fraternity.

While Coronavirus has brought a halt to all activities, sports is one of the industries that has suffered the most. It directly and indirectly supports many jobs which has caused concerned authorities to give sports a go ahead without spectators. 

Therefore, with Coronavirus showing no signs of abating, fans have had to get used to the new normal of sports in the ‘COVID world’ where the stadiums will be devoid of the emotions that only a live crowd can generate. To hear the opinions of such top decision makers should be interesting as the whole of the sports industry takes its first steps into the large and unknown terrain of an extended period of games being played behind closed doors. 

Date: June 3, 2020

Time: 4:00 PM
