Live sports are amazing experiences that fans often take for granted. In these troubling times, there’s a void-like deficit of live events. Not just the actual games, but also the sideshows that go with the games such as Hall of Fame ceremonies and drafts, are things we miss these days.
Today we’re going to take a look at 20 sports experiences that fans took for granted and absolutely miss these days. There is a light at the end of the tunnel in terms of many sports experiences, but many roadblocks remain. Some of them are massive sports experiences, while others are smaller scale but still hold a special place in our hearts. Check out the list below.
20. Live Attendances
First of all, let’s talk about the obvious. Live attendances are out the window right now. We’ve seen several sporting events return behind closed doors. However, it has obvious pros and cons. It is great to see some live sports back, but when it comes to the likes of soccer games, a crowd definitely adds to the experience.
One of the sports suffering less from this is MMA. It’s fascinating to hear the noise of fighters hitting each other and their corners shouting instructions. It’s definitely a strange time and arguably reduces the competitive nature of the events. In short, professional sports need fans.
