(Colo.)- Colorado Governor Approves Return Of Pro Sports
(Chadrad Sports)- Colorado Governor Jared Polis has signed off on professional sporting events being played in the state without fans in attendance, according to TheAthletic.com.
Polis said Colorado will be ready to host sporting events as soon as the leagues themselves are ready to return to action.
“We’re certainly ready as soon as the leagues are ready,” Polis said. I talked to the baseball commissioner today. I think their protocols look really good and we’re certainly excited to get them going as soon as they’re ready to go.”
Polis is open to a handful of fans attending games in Colorado as a symbolic gesture and in so few a number that distancing is easy to maintain.
It’s the latest in a growing push to get sports leagues back playing after being shutdown completely for the last two months.
Baseball would be the first to return as football won’t be played until the fall. Polis is hopeful circumstances allow for things to progress back toward normal into football season.
