We are one step closer to having professional sports back in our lives. On Tuesday, May 26, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy announced that he was clearing the way for pro sports to resume training amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Teams will be forced to follow proper safety measures and guidelines while they attempt to get back to normal.

“Professional sports teams in NJ may return to training and even competition – if their leagues choose to move in that direction,” Murphy wrote on Twitter. “We have been in constant discussions with teams about necessary protocols to protect the health and safety of players, coaches, and personnel.”

The New York Giants and New York Jets will be among the teams opening their facilities as soon as next week.

The coronavirus outbreak has led to the cancellation or postponing of many large events including The Masters, NCAA Tournament, Coachella, SXSW, the Winter X Games, Stagecoach, Ultra Music Festival in Miami, and more. The NBA, NHL, and MLS have temporarily suspended their seasons.

While there is still some work to do before the league can return in full swing, it is a positive sign and brings some optimism that the NFL season could go on as planned this fall.
