Majority Of Americans Say They Won’t Attend Sporting Events Until There’s A COVID-19 Vaccine

When it comes time for sporting events to return following the coronavirus outbreak, will you pack into the stadiums and arenas with your fellow fans?

According to a new poll taken by Seton Hall University’s Stillman School of Business, it’s going to be a hard sell.

A full 72 percent of Americans said they would no longer feel safe until there’s a vaccine for COVID-19. Only 13 percent of the 762 respondents had no problem seeing games as they did pre-pandemic, while 12 percent could be coaxed back into the seats if social distancing practices were used.

Medical experts believe a vaccine wouldn’t be out before next year.

Which camp do you fall into? How do you think sports will change after the outbreak?
