Return to Sport: Risks, Rewards, Opportunities and Challenges.
In what was supposed to be an Olympic year, sports organisations, athletes and fans were gearing up for the biggest celebration of sport across the globe. However, the global COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically changed the landscape and forced closure of sport from grassroots to elite.
As social distancing measures start to ease, sport will start the long journey back to the centre stage. But what will the return to healthy activity, community participation and elite sport look like in a post pandemic world?
The Forum presented leaders at the forefront of development in the sports industry in a thought-provoking, in-depth discussions on the moral, legal and ethical issues related to playing and spectating sport, providing their views on what might be the new business models and exploring how sport can be more fail proof for external shocks such as a pandemic.
