COVID-19 Shuts down sport around the world

There is almost no sport to watch at the moment. Anyone who loves football, cricket, tennis, hockey, and more, have nothing to watch for at least another 3 months. Though there is some sport still going on, and if you love watching the NRL, or A-League football, you are in luck.

The Warriors have decided to stay in Australia to play the season out, although they said that if circumstances change they may have to come back to NZ. A-League football is also going ahead, but the Phoenix have had their next game postponed as they have to isolate themselves for 14 days, the new rule when entering NZ. Their next game is on the 4th of April against Adelaide United, being played in Wellington.

Coronavirus has also had a big effect on money in sports, and many football clubs have lost millions of dollars, and some even, like Manchester United, have lost close to a billion.

For all sport-lovers, it is going to be a boring next few months.
