New York governor: I am “aggressive” on encouraging sports to resume without fans

New York governor says he’s “aggressive” on encouraging sports to resume without fans
As New York state reopens further, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he is “very aggressive on encouraging sports teams to start to operate without fans” as much as they can.
““To the extent they can start, I encourage them to start,” he said. “New York will be a full partner. Anything we can do to make it happen and make it happen safely, we will.””

He acknowledged that this applies to all sports teams differently and some will find it easier to work under these circumstances than the others.

“Some sports franchises can make this work easier than others. It depends the economics of that sports and how much is determined by selling seats in the arena or the stadium, etc,” he said.

However, Cuomo said the state will encourage people to stay at home and watch the sports broadcasts.

“That gives people at home entertainment value, something to participate in. Another reason, frankly, to stay home as opposed to go out. And staying home is good right now,” he added.
