The return of the Nascar car championship on Sunday launches the
progressive deconfinement of sport in the United States, after two months
due to coronavirus. The opportunity to take stock of the
calendar of resumed competitions, in camera:

 Nascar from Sunday, in Darlington (South Carolina), then Wednesday
always on the same oval for another race. IndyCar to start championship June 6 with the
CU of Forth Worth (Texas) for a night race.

with an exhibition notably involving the world number 1 Rory
McIlroy. PGA season to resume at Forth Worth
(Texas) where will take place June 11-14 the Charles Schwab Challenge.

Tennis

For the time being, the season is suspended until June inclusive. A
 extension could be decided, but in the meantime, the hard season
 in North America is maintained, starting with the Newport tournament (ATP,
July 13-19).

Football

So far
 spared, the NFL plans to start its season as planned September 10,
with the poster between defending champions Kansas City Chiefs and Houston
Texans. The whole of its calendar is unchanged, with in point
the Superbowl on February 7, 2021, in Tampa Bay, Florida.

 promoter Bob Arum (Top Rank) plans to organize fights on 9
June
in Las Vegas in an MGM group hotel. The poster remains at
determine, but according to ESPN, a clash for the WBO weight title
 feathers between tenant Shakur Stevenson and Miguel Marriaga could
to be the attraction.

Basketball

First league to have
suspended season on March 11, NBA would like to resume this summer. The
scenario which “Makes sense”, according to his boss Adam Silver, is to move forward
directly to the play-offs by competing in one or two “bubbles”.
Las Vegas and / or Orlando would hold the rope to welcome the teams
 in quarantine areas.

Ice Hockey

The NHL calendar being
much the same as the NBA, the same issues
are asked and the same recovery scenarios are evoked for this summer,
 including that of playing in four “bubbles”. According to New york post,
 the league would also work on a 24-team tournament, each round being
playing the best of the three matches.

Baseball

The season
should have started on March 26. Hoping to start it in July, the
 MLB owners have offered players to shorten it by
half (82 matches instead of 162). Wage cuts
could result, but if the players’ union gives its
okay, the teams would mostly meet those of their division,
to limit travel and costs.

Soccer

The
 MLS, which has suspended its season after two days, could, according to
some media, send his 26 teams to Florida to compete in a
tournament in a “bubble” at Disney World. The idea would be to arrive
in June for a month of training, before playing, without having been
whether these matches will count towards the current championship.
