When Can We Expect Professional Sport In The US To Return?

The COVID-19 crisis has ravaged the global sporting calendar. By mid-March, almost all competitions were cancelled or postponed as the pandemic swept from country to country, in what has been the biggest disruption to sport since World War Two.
