As boxing slowly gets back on track, fans around the world are starting to discuss their dream fights.

According to his promoter, Terence Crawford’s next fight could come against Manny Pacquiao.Terence Crawford In Ring

The welterweight division is arguably the most competitive in boxing. Terence Crawford sits at the top of this division. Today, we’re going to look at how a fight between him and Manny Pacquiao might play out.

Let’s get into it!

Fans Continue to Speculate About Terence Crawford’s Next Fight

The sport of boxing has only been back for a couple of weeks. In March of this year, the entire sports world was completely shut down. Boxing promotions around the world were forced to cancel their upcoming bouts and no one really knew when these would resume.

Recently, several promoters have gained approval to start holding fight cards in Las Vegas. A few events have taken place and by all accounts, they’ve been successful. Now, some of the top promoters in the sport are beginning to schedule big fights.

Terence Crawford is widely considered to be one of the best boxers in the world today. He’s 36-0 as a professional and holds wins over several top welterweights. Crawford currently holds the WBO welterweight title and is waiting for the next opportunity to defend his belt.

Many believe that welterweight is the best and most competitive weight division in boxing. Obviously, everyone wants to see who Terence Crawford’s next fight will be against. One thing was clear. He’s due for a big-name opponent.

Fortunately, that appears to be the case. Crawford is signed with Top Rank, one of the biggest promotions in the sport. The CEO of Top Rank recently spoke to the media and claims Terence has some exciting possible opponents in his future.

Here’s An Update on Terence Crawford’s Next Fight

Now that boxing events are starting to take place again, promoters are looking to book high-profile bouts. Many feel that we’ll see some dream fights take place over the next six months. Many eyes are on the welterweight division.

Terence Crawford is one of the most popular fighters in boxing right now. He has an extremely exciting style and seems almost unstoppable right now. Most fans predicted that he’d get a big name for his next bout.

Bob Arum, CEO of Top Rank, recently spoke to the media about Terence Crawford’s next fight. He claims the primary opponent they are hoping to secure is Manny Pacquiao. He also gave a tentative date for Crawford’s next bout.

“We’re going to have Terence fight in September, or October, period,” Arum said. “We’re looking to either match him with Pacquiao, Kell Brook, Ugas or Porter. [On Pacquiao] That’s the opponent that I would most like Terence to fight, and I think he would.”

Manny Pacquiao is one of the most legendary boxers on the planet. He’s now in his 40s, yet continues to defeat world class fighters. Back in July of 2019, for example, he defeated Keith Thurman via decision.

It may be a few more weeks before Terence Crawford’s next fight is officially announced. It seems more and more likely that it will come against Pacquiao. Odds for this bout are likely to be released soon.

Sports Gambling Is About to Present Amazing Opportunities

Sports Betting Odds and Lines Board

Sports bettors are about to have a once in a lifetime opportunity as the NBA, the NFL, and the NHL are all planned to start back up around the same time.

“The bettors will be in gambling heaven for August and September, especially if the NHL and NBA come back as it looks like,” says Kornegay, the owner of the sportsbook that partnered with The Lodge Casino in Black Hawk, CO.

Colorado Already Has A Hefty Income Stream

Sportsbooks became legal for the first time in Colorado on May 1. According to the Colorado Department of Revenue, even though most sports have not started playing yet, approximately $25.5 million in bets have been placed so far.

That number is especially impressive, considering there are only seven licensed vendors in operation throughout the state. Colorado officials have approved twenty-five internet operators and nineteen brick-and-mortar retail operators to open for the next couple of months.

So hopefully, that helps revenue increase.

The Broncos, based in Denver, CO, became the first franchise with a sports betting sponsorship when they accepted a multi-year partnership with FanDuel.

The gambling relationships that were once taboo are now being celebrated for the first time. While the gambling market has been put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, it is expected to come back full steam in the coming months. This partnership is proof of that!

There Are Many Unknows – But That Shouldn’t Stop You

The restart of these leagues come with a myriad of questions.

  • Will fans be allowed to attend the games?
  • How will empty arenas affect the quality of the game?
  • Will any players suddenly retire as a result of the new playing conditions?
  • Will the athletes be able to perform at their best after a long time without practicing?
  • Which teams will be ready to finish this unprecedented season? 

These are just a few of the questions we all have, and I’m are sure you have even more. While I can’t answer any of these questions with any degree of certainty, I’m excited to discover the answers in the months to come.

Wrap Up

This year has been unpredictable, to say the least.

Nothing has gone according to plan for anyone, and I’m not surprised that the same is to be said for the world of sports gambling. No one could have predicted that sports gambling would take off in Colorado or that the Broncos would team up with Fanduel during a pandemic, but both happened.

I’m eager to see what will happen next, and we should all expect to encounter unremarkable betting opportunities within the next couple of months.

Dana White Confirms Date For Miocic vs. DC 3!

The UFC continues to make major announcements! MMA fans around the world have been eagerly awaiting news on what will come next for the heavyweight division. Today, Dana White revealed that Miocic vs. DC 3 will take place in August.Miocic Punches Cormier

This is likely the biggest heavyweight fight the UFC could put together right now. Fans around the US are already placing their bets on the potential outcome. Today, we’re going to check out what to expect from this slugfest.

With Gym Reopen, Stipe Miocic is Ready to Fight

Stipe Miocic is undoubtedly one of the greatest heavyweight MMA fighters of all time. He’s 19-3 as a professional and is the only man to ever defend the UFC heavyweight title three-straight times. The Cleveland native has found his toughest test to be Daniel Cormier.

That’s not entirely surprising. Cormier himself is a once-in-a-generation mixed martial artist. The former Olympian has only lost twice during his MMA career. Cormier and Stipe have fought on two occasions and both hold a win over the other.

Everyone felt the trilogy bout was inevitable. Unfortunately, Miocic has been sitting on the sidelines, waiting for his training facility to reopen. Prior to this, the champion was dealing with a major retina injury.

Many states around the country are starting to allow businesses to reopen. Not long ago, news broke that Ohio had lifted much of its restrictions, and Miocic’s MMA gym was back open. Daniel Cormier then told the media he was in the training room, as well. It seemed like just a matter of time before this trilogy fight was announced.

This is probably the most important heavyweight fight in the history of MMA. The winner will likely go down as one of the division’s GOAT’s. Fortunately, fans now know when to expect this important fight.

UFC President Dana White Sets Date for Miocic vs. DC 3

There have been times when the heavyweight division was a little stagnant. Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier have reinvigorated the weight class. Their trilogy will likely be one of the biggest MMA bouts in recent history.

This week, Dana White told the media that Miocic vs. DC 3 would officially take place on August 15th. He did not reveal a specific location for this event. At the moment, the most logical option is for this bout to take place at the UFCs own arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

What’s important is that the UFC has gotten both men to sign the fight contract. Fans are now busy speculating how this fight will end up playing out. Some feel Miocic will capitalize on the body shots he found success with during his second fight with DC.

Others think Daniel Cormier will go back to his wrestling to get the win over Stipe. He’s one of the best grapplers at heavyweight and likely has the advantage here. What most agree on is this will be an incredible fight.

Miocic vs. DC 3 is just one of many exciting bouts scheduled to take place this summer. We just recently got confirmation of where the UFC’s “Fight Island” is located. Officials within the UFC also revealed several important bouts scheduled to take place on this island event.

The First “Fight Island” Event Will Feature Three Title Fights

The news that the UFC had booked its own private island to hold fight cards spread like wildfire. Fans imagined this island being located somewhere in the pacific ocean surrounded by a dense tropical rainforest. Unfortunately, that’s not the case.

Company officials have just announced that “Fight Island” is actually Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. For months, the UFC has been building infrastructure to host events here. The first card is scheduled here for July 11th.

We already know which fighters will headline this event. Check out the three main bouts below.

  • Kamaru Usman vs. Gilbert Burns
  • Alexander Volkanovski vs. Max Holloway
  • Jose Aldo vs. Petr Yan

Each of these bouts is for a world championship. Many feel this is one of the best line up of title fights the UFC has ever put together. It won’t be long before sites like Bovada begin offering odds on the entire “Fight Island” card.

It’s an exciting time to be an MMA fan. We now know when Miocic vs. DC 3 will take place. Soon, we’ll know where to.

Let us know who you think wins this heavyweight trilogy fight in the comments section below!

Online Sports Betting Could Be Available in Illinois Soon

Flag of Illinois

Three months ago, right before the coronavirus pandemic started to spread throughout Illinois, sports betting became legal in the state for the first time. Not ideal for anyone, but this hits hard for online sports betters in Illinois!

Sports bettors got excited about all the potential bets they could make and then they were devastated by the news that most sports leagues were canceled to prevent the spread of the virus.

On June 5, Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed an executive order that gave bettors permission to register for online sports betting accounts from home. The previous gaming expansion bill required bettors to register at racetracks or casinos in person before they were allowed to create an account and bet from home. For the safety of the residents, the governor decided to temporarily change the policy on this.

Governor Rulings

Marcus Fruchter, the Illinois Gaming Board administrator, said this in a recent interview

“Governor Pritzker’s executive order allows Illinois sports fans to temporarily place wagers from the safety of their own home, protecting a revenue source that is critical as the state begins to recover from the damaging financial impact of COVID-19.”

The Illinois Gaming Board won’t be opening any casinos until they feel it is safe to do so, so online betting will be the next best option.

Despite the governor’s latest change, Illinois natives won’t be able to place a bet just yet. Seven casinos and three racetracks have applied for sports betting licenses, but only two casinos have been granted temporary ones so far. They will also have to apply for an additional license to be able to offer online betting and neither casino has submitted those forms yet.

The exact details of what sports will be available to bet on and what types of wagers will be available in the future is unknown at this time. However, the gaming board does have plans to discuss these questions and more during their next meeting on June 11. This will be their first time gathering together since January 30. Hopefully, we will have more information for you after the details of this meeting have been released. 

Wrap Up

Illinois is making strides towards offering sports betting options for their residents, but they aren’t ready quite yet. Once the casinos apply and get approved for the appropriate licenses, things can move forward.

Residents of Illinois can safely sign up for online sports betting accounts from the comfort of their own homes to get ready for when sports betting finally becomes available. Hopefully, this happens sooner rather than later!

The Trump vs. Biden Betting Odds Have Changed!

The five months have been some of the strangest in the recent history of the United States. To make things even more complicated than they already are, we’re in for another presidential election a little over five months from today. Due to several recent events, the Trump vs. Biden betting odds have changed in a major way.Donald Trump And Joe Biden

A lot can happen in just a few months. It’s likely that the current odds will look much different when November rolls around. Today, we’ll take a quick look at where the election odds stand right now.

These odds are courtesy of Bovada, one of the top online sportsbooks in the US.

President Trump’s Approval Rating is Beginning to Drop

Donald Trump’s run as President of the United States has been highly contentious. It seems that the US population either loves him or hates him. His standing with the general population swings wildly from one direction to the next depending on the decision he makes on any given day.

The past week has proven to be one of the worst in his presidency. As most are well-aware of, massive protests are taking place around the country due to the murder of Georgy Floyd by a member of the Minneapolis police force.

President Trump hasn’t exactly calmed things down. Just a couple of days ago, he ordered law enforcement to disperse protesters near the White House to make way for a photo opportunity at the St. John’s Church.

We’re beginning to see the President’s approval rating drop quickly. In Utah, for example, 46% of the state now believes he’s doing a poor job as POTUS. His overall US disapproval rating is now at 54%.

The betting odds for the 2020 election are beginning to change quickly, as well.

Unsurprisingly, these odds are now starting to swing in Joe Biden’s favor. Not everyone is convinced things will stay this way, though. Here’s where both men stand in the eyes of the oddsmakers.

Trump vs. Biden Betting Odds Continue to Change

For many weeks, all major US sports leagues were completely shut down. As a result, political betting started to grow considerably more popular than it was at the start of the year. Many have now begun placing their bets on the upcoming 2020 presidential election.

Joe Biden is the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. Not everyone is pleased about this fact. It’s been a struggle for a widely-supported nominee to come forward that Democrats feel can defeat Donald Trump in the polls.

the Trump vs. Biden odds seem to indicate that Joe has a real shot at winning. In fact, Joe Biden has overtaken Trump as the favorite to win the election with odds of -110.

There are some that point out Biden’s blunders on television as a reason to be concerned. Others close to Joe swear he’s still more than capable of becoming President. The oddsmakers now like his chances and based on the recent events, his chances of winning are better now than ever before.

Trump’s presidency has been one of the most contentious in history. He has a loyal fan base and many felt the economic situation during the majority of his time as President would lead to a reelection. His odds are now dead even to winning in 2020.

November is still a long time away. The current odds are almost certain to change dramatically before that time.

Sports Betting is Slowly Beginning to Come Back

This year’s election is likely to be the most-bet-on political event of all time. Part of that is due to the public opinions of Donald Trump. Another reason is the surge in sports betting seen around the United States.

Sports gambling has grown tremendously popular since the Supreme Court struck down PASPA in May of 2018. Even in states without a regulated sports betting industry, this form of gambling is growing. Fortunately, mainstream sports are now starting to make a comeback.

As we said earlier, several major leagues have already begun to resume their operations. That includes the UFC, which continues to hold major fight cards weekly. The NBA is likely to resume its operations soon, too.

Some feel that within the next few months, all US sports leagues will be back up and running. That’s an extremely exciting proposition for many people across the US. We’re finally getting some entertainment!

For now, the Trump vs. Biden betting odds might be the best available wager online. There’s a chance that Donald ends up as the betting favorite once the election rolls around. Perhaps this is the time to take advantage of the odds!

We’re Likely to See Legal Sports Betting in California This Year

Every single day, US states are losing money. Many businesses around the country remain shut down and lawmakers are looking at new and effective ways to generate revenue. Recently, state leaders have begun taking a closer look at allowing legal sports betting in California.California

More than 20 states have already legalized this form of wagering. Most of them are earning an incredible amount of money every month from this industry. Today, we’re going to look at what needs to be done in order to get California’s sports betting industry up and running.

Let’s get into it!

California’s Casino Industry is Slowly Coming Back to Life

California doesn’t have a reputation for being a major gambling destination. That’s likely because this state has not legalized commercial casino gambling. At the moment, only Native American-run gambling venues are able to legally operate.

With that being said, there is an large number of world-class casinos operating in this state. Many of the casinos here are hugely successful. All of the casinos in California help to bring the state valuable revenue every single month.

Unfortunately, that revenue had stopped flowing in over the past three months. All casinos here closed their doors in March. Over the past two weeks, however, some of these gaming venues have decided to reopen their doors to the public.

Rates of Covid-19 have been relatively low in California. As a result, Governor Newsom is allowing certain businesses to slowly open back up. The casinos in this state sit on sovereign land, meaning they are able to open at their own pace.

It’s clear that many residents in this state missed being able to gamble. Some of the casinos that reopened have seen long lines of guests looking to place some bets. Now, state leaders are looking more into the possibility of legalizing sports betting.

Legal Sports Betting in California Should Arrive in 2020

The surge of sports betting can be seen all around the country right now. It’s been incredible to watch, especially considering the fact that just a few years ago, only Nevada was legally able to offer sports betting odds. This finally changed in May of 2018.

That month, the Supreme Court made the historic decision to remove PASPA. Doing so immediately gave every state in the country the ability to legalize sports betting. Within days of PASPA gone, several states including New Jersey and Delaware officially approved bills to legalize sports gambling.

This proved to be a great decision. Many credit the legalization of sports betting for turning Atlantic City back into a major gambling hub. Revenue began to increase rapidly here and more states quickly started to approve sports betting bills.

2020 is the year that legal sports betting in California needs to be allowed. Lawmakers have been in a dispute with Native American tribes on how to legalize this industry. This week, two senators proposed amendments to legalize both in-person and online sports betting.

Senator Bill Dodd commented on the economic impact the legalization of sports betting may have.

“The amount of money that can be raised in benefit of the state with online wagering is estimated to be up to $700 million a year,” Dodd said. “We’re looking to get those revenues for a COVID-type budget where we need to be looking out for every opportunity to increase our revenues at a time when we have to make so many cuts.”

Governor Newsom seems to see the potential in this industry, as well. In order to approve legal sports betting in California, though, this bill needs to make it on the state ballot by June 15th. Hope is that this happens.

Sports Leagues Are Beginning to Operate Again

For months, almost all US sports leagues were shut down. These leagues understood that by resuming operations, they put players at risk of being infected with Covid-19. It was unclear when any of these leagues would start to begin operating again.

UFC President Dana White continued to tell the media his promotion would be the first one to start running again. On May 9th, he achieved that goal. That day, the UFC held a major event in Jacksonville, Florida. It’s since held several more events.

More leagues are now starting to operate again. As a result, sports betting continues to grow more popular. That’s great news for many states desperate to earn revenue right now.

Many feel that legal sports betting in California is coming this year. Several senators in the state are pushing hard to make this happen. The main focus for lawmakers will now be on coming to an agreement with Native American tribes here.

It’s an interesting time for the sports world. No one really knows when leagues will resume their operations with fans in attendance. What’s clear is that people will continue betting on whatever sporting events are taking place.

Do you think California will legalize sports betting this year? Let us know in the comments section below!

Century Casinos and Bet365 Partner for Online Sports Betting in Colorado

Century Casino in Central City Colorado Century Casinos, Inc. announced today it finalized an agreement with international odds provider Bet365 to serve as the Colorado Springs-based company’s second Internet Sports Betting Operator.

After receiving approval from the state of Colorado, Century Casinos and Bet365 plan to launch an online sportsbook and mobile application. The internet platform and mobile app will reportedly feature Bet365 branding.

Colorado’s Terrible Timing

Last November, Colorado voters passed Proposition DD, paving the way for the state’s legislature to decriminalize sports betting. On May 1, 2020, lawmakers approved bill HB19-1327, which officially authorized online and retail sportsbooks to operate in the state.

Unfortunately, the timing could not have been worse, as professional sports in the United States were effectively shut down just as sportsbooks in the Centennial State welcomed their first customers.

Stay-at-home orders have led to an industry-wide decline in revenue for casinos. However, some U.S. gaming companies have reported a sharp increase in online gaming revenues, as patrons transition to mobile apps for action. Accordingly, the casino industry is rapidly developing proprietary internet-based platforms for sports betting.

Sportsbook Operators Flock to the Centennial State

Colorado charges $54,000 for an Internet Sports Betting Operator License. Gaming companies granted a “master license” by the state are permitted to contract third-party operators to run their sportsbooks. The contractor managing sports betting must also receive a license from the state. Century Casinos has received a master license from the state of Colorado.

In February 2020, Century Casinos signed a 15-year agreement with Circa Sports Colorado to serve as one of its Internet Sports Betting Operators. Circa Sports operates a mobile sports betting app and shares a percentage of the revenue with the casino entertainment company.

The new agreement with Bet365 is a 10-year deal that provides Century Casinos with a minimum annual revenue guarantee and a share of net revenues from the online sportsbook and Bet365 app.

Currently, bettors in Colorado have access to sports betting via other mobile and online gaming operators, including DraftKings and FanDuel. The addition of Bet365 to the state’s sports betting market should increase competition in the mobile gaming sector.

Expect sportsbooks to battle for new clients with sign-up offers, odds boosts, and deposit bonuses.

William Hill Sees Sharp Drop in US Betting Action

Outside Entrance to Euro William HillAs professional sports resume around the world, sportsbooks and oddsmakers have turned their attention to international football, baseball, and golf.

William Hill says the return of the Bundesliga, Germany’s premier football league, is an encouraging sign for the sports betting industry. The company noted in a trading statement released this past Friday, May 15, that international football accounts for approximately half of its online sportsbook business in the United Kingdom.

Despite the increased attention on niche international sports, there’s still a massive chunk of revenue missing from William Hill’s sports betting business.

Decrease in Amounts Wagered at Sportsbooks

William Hill currently operates in nine U.S. states: Delaware, Indiana, Iowa, Mississippi, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Rhode Island, Washington, D.C., and West Virginia.

From March 11 to April 28, the total amount wagered at U.S. sportsbooks operated by William Hill decreased by 86% compared to the same period the previous year. In the United States alone, the company reported a 90% decrease in total net revenue.

Economic Woes Lead to Furloughs

The majority of William Hill employees who staff the company’s betting shops have been furloughed indefinitely during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The trading statement mentions that William Hill has also cancelled company bonuses, salary increases, and is deferring hiring to reduce staff costs. Dividend payments to investors have been suspended until further notice.

William Hill Online Casino Coming to U.S.

While the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted business at William Hill’s retail sportsbooks, the company plans to accelerate growth in its internet gaming division by launching an online casino in the United States.

Pending regulatory approval, William Hill plans to debut its new online casino product during the second half of 2020. Reportedly the online casino will launch in the state of New Jersey first, and then the company will roll out the product to every state it has a license to operate in.

Ulrik Bengtsson, CEO of William Hill, commented in the report:

Our ambition to build a digitally led, internationally diverse business of scale is proving beneficial during the disruption as our international online business has performed very strongly. We have accelerated product developments in the US in particular to ensure we are well positioned when sports activity reopens.

William Hill recently set up drive-thru kiosks to service sportsbook clients in Nevada, as mobile wagering remains a top priority for the online gaming giant. The company is still seeing plenty of action via its app. Reportedly, sports bettors have found their interest piqued by table tennis and obscure international football matches.

Spreads Released for Every Las Vegas Raiders Regular Season Game

Today, May 14, William Hill released spreads for each of the Las Vegas Raiders games for the 2020-21 NFL regular season.

Las Vegas Raiders Helmet on Field

Despite showing promise early on during the team’s final season in Oakland, CA, the Raiders lost five of their final six games last year, finishing the regular season at 7-9. Unfortunately for fans hopeful for a bounceback season, oddsmakers don’t appear too hopeful on the team’s chances of winning more games this year. William Hill currently has the team’s “Regular Season Wins” total set at over/under 7.5 wins.

The Raiders are only favored to win one game by more than a field goal, and that doesn’t come until Week 16 at home against the Miami Dolphins. Overall, the Las Vegas Raiders are favored in three games, each of them coming at home in the second half of the season.

Raiders Fans Waiting for NFL’s Return

The Raiders’ move to Las Vegas has been covered widely, with speculation that the city’s new NFL team could increase tourism revenue. California’s die-hard Raiders fans are only a short flight or car ride away from the team’s new home in Nevada.

The Las Vegas Raiders first home game in Sin City is scheduled to take place on September 21, 2020, as they face off against the New Orleans Saints in the newly constructed Allegiant Stadium.

Allegiant Stadium Seating Chart

It’s unclear how the NFL plans to implement social distancing guidelines at football games, so fans may not even be allowed to attend the first few games of the season. Regardless, you can expect Las Vegas sportsbooks to see their fair share of action on the city’s new team.

The Upcoming NASCAR Event is Expected to Be a Hit

On Sunday, May 17th, NASCAR is set to return. Even non-racing fans are beginning to get excited to see the top racing company in the US get back on track. This week, the President of NASCAR spoke about the upcoming NASCAR event and claims it will be one of the most-watched races of all time.NASCAR Race

Several sports leagues are slowly beginning to resume their operations. Today, we’re going to discuss the big race taking place later this month. We’ll also check out the odds for each racer scheduled to compete in the event.

Let’s get into it!

NASCAR’s First Cup Series Race is Almost Here!

As everyone knows, nearly all major sports leagues in the United States are completely shut down right now. Many online sportsbooks are trying to keep up by offering unique wagering options. League commissioners around the country have been looking at ways to resume their operations. Only a few have gained approval to start hosting events.

That includes NASCAR. For the past month, officials within NASCAR have discussed ways to hold races again. Eventually, the company gained approval to start hosting races in late May. There are some notable differences from the normal races, though.

Between May 17th and the 27th, NASCAR will hold five different races. Interestingly, there will be no practices and no qualifying round. The drivers will simply get in their cars and start competing.

Several drivers have expressed concern about the situation. Kurt Busch spoke to the media about how he feels the conditions will impact race results.

“The biggest thing we’re all going to be faced with is the track’s rapidly changing conditions because we used to have the Truck Series or Xfinity Series to help lay down the rubber and create the look of where the groove is, and now (the groove is) going to be as green as it has ever been,” Busch said. The pace is going to be astronomically fast in the beginning and (the groove is) going to be getting glazed over more rapidly during our race. Those are the things that crew chiefs, lead engineers and drivers are going to be challenged with in this unique setting.”

Things will certainly be more difficult. In some ways, this is even more intriguing to fans. The upcoming NASCAR event on May 17th is expected to be one of the biggest in recent memory. Some feel this will end up helping the sport in the long run.

Steve Phelps Comments on Upcoming NASCAR Event

Officials within NASCAR deserve credit for getting things back on track. Based on what’s being said, the upcoming events will be held in as safe a way as possible. It may not be the perfect situation, yet most drivers are happy to be competing again, as well.

NASCAR Steve Phelps recently spoke about the company’s plans for the future. He believes that the Upcoming NASCAR event will be viewed by millions of people around the country.

“We think this is going to be a really good test for us and a real opportunity for us to have our core fans consume the sport like they never have because we haven’t been racing for so long but also an opportunity for other people to see our sport, sample our sport,” Phelps said. “I think we’re going to have millions of fans that will tune in who otherwise wouldn’t who will see how great our sport is. And so I think we’ll have potential lifetime fans that will come out of this really difficult situation that we’re experiencing.”

Most analysts agree that viewership will be significantly higher for this race than others in the past. People around the country are desperate for any kind of live sporting event. It’s likely that a huge number of people will tune in to watch this live race take place.

Some feel this may end up helping NASCAR. Over the past decade, viewership for NASCAR events has continued to drop. The exposure that the race on May 17th will receive could bring about an entirely new fan base to this sport.

NASCAR Won’t be the First Sport to Resume Operations

As time goes on, more states around the country are slowly beginning to open back up. Sports leagues are also beginning to resume their seasons. That includes the UFC, which is set to hold its first event in nearly two months this Saturday night.

The UFC has continued to claim it will be the first sport back on track. UFC President Dana White came close to hosting a major fight card on April 18th. This was eventually shut down by the heads of ESPN, yet the promotion has now been given the green light to host the event this weekend in Jacksonville, Florida.

UFC 249 is one of the most stacked fight cards in recent history. It’s headlined by two major title fights. Much like the upcoming NASCAR event, many predict the UFC card this weekend will be one of the most-watched ever put together.

Sports fans are starting to get excited. We now have several different sporting events scheduled to take place this month. Hope is that in time, major leagues such as the NFL and MLB are able to start putting on games, as well.
