ALBANY – New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says he’s ready to get sports back up and running in the state.







The governor announced this week he wants major sports teams to plan on reopening without fans.

He says the games can still be seen on television.







“We’re now taking steps to do further reopening with fewer crowds,” explained Cuomo. “I’m very aggressive on encouraging sports teams to start and to operate without fans.”

“This is more an economic calculus for different sports,” he furthered. “Some sports franchises can make this work easier than others, it depends on the economics of that sport and how much is determined by selling seats in the arena or the stadium, etc. But to the extent they can start, I encourage them to start, the state will work with them to start.”













The governor is encouraging teams in every sport to make reopening plans.
