There is absolutely no doubting that we are seeing the growing force of sport again, following it being halted in its tracks by COVID-19 last year. The latter is still very much around world-wide and we are still in the process of tackling this, but sport has returned and proven a great success and even continued its major growth that we have been seeing in recent years. This list is an example and has been used my many fans in order to bet on their favourite sports year round. This has also helped the growth that we have seen in the overall market, with sports also continuing to be one of the driving forces of entertainment.
When it comes to entertainment, it has never been of more importance. People are now having to spend extended periods of time within their own homes, due to lockdowns enforced, which has meant that many different areas of online entertainment has been growing and sport is another part of this. It is helping to keep fans and people entertained each week, despite them unable to be in attendance. This is something that is likely to continue for an extended time and there is no likely date as to when people can attend sport events again, due to them being large crowds. But despite this negative, there is no doubting the growing force of sport.
However, there are also some news potentially in the offing and the Olympic games was already moved from 2020 to 2021 and it now appears that the event could even be cancelled, with Japan still on high alert, due to the pandemic. Questions are now being asked, as to whether the event is still going ahead but the International Olympic Committee have recently said they are targeting a safe and successful games. That is extremely positive news and will be important for the athletes, who have trained their entire life for this event and the potential at picking up a medal.
Football also has a major event this year, with the European championships set to take place, having also been moved last year at a similar time to the previously mentioned Olympics. This is all set to go ahead, and anticipation is building ahead of the event in just a few months’ time. Let’s hope these are successful events and sport continues to keep us entertained.
