Gov. Gavin Newsom says pro sports could be back in California in early June

California Governor Gavin Newsom said in April that he didn’t anticipate football games being played in front of full crowds in the state this fall, but they are moving closer to a point where they could be played without fans.

Newsom said on on Monday that current numbers showing the spread of COVID-19 in California have led to thoughts of opening the state up for professional sporting events in a few weeks “if we hold these trend lines.”

“Sporting events, pro sports, in that first week or so of June without spectators and modifications and very prescriptive conditions also can begin to move forward,” Newsom said.

Newsom has raised other questions about how sports will move forward amid the pandemic. As California and other states move toward opening their doors to those events, we’ll likely start to get some of those answers.

  1. It’s time to figure out how to move forward… Glad he finally got the memo.

  2. Newsom was born to be a politician. You can’t trust anything he says because the following week he will flip flop on the issue.

  3. He has time to change his mind back and forth 3 times before June rolls around. This guy doesn’t brush his teeth in the morning before checking to see if the poll numbers are in favor of it.

  4. The events that have transpired show what kind of leader he is. If the people of California reelect him than they have nobody to blame but themselves for their future. His first action was to cut-off their liberties and that should tell you all you need to know.

  5. Go A’s! Would hate to lose a year where they are stacked with talent. Same with my Niners.

  6. If only California could find a way to hold back that $500 billion they give to the Feds every year, for redistribution to red states…
