The return of sports is just around the corner after a nearly three-month hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic. So, naturally, ESPN is hosting a SportsCenter special appropriately titled The Return of Sports on Monday, June 15.
The special will be hosted by Mike Greenberg with interviews commissioners from six of the top American professional team sports leagues regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.
The participating commissioners for The Return of Sports special will include Gary Bettman (NHL), Cathy Engelbert (WNBA), Don Garber (MLS), Roger Goodell (NFL), Rob Manfred (MLB) and Adam Silver (NBA).
“This is a time unlike any I can recall in this country, and these “games people play” are sure to take on a different meaning than they might have three months ago, or three weeks ago,” Greenberg said in a statement. “I can’t imagine any people better equipped to answer the questions all fans have right now, on the precipice of the return of sports, than the ones we have lined up for Monday night.
“Mostly, I hope that it will be highly informative. What we do is a combination of entertainment and information. This is a night that will lean into the latter. There are so many questions about the restart of sports with the Coronavirus still so much a reality of our lives. I know I wonder how they plan to pull this off; hopefully, by the end of Monday night we will have those answers.”
The special is set to begin at 9:00 p.m. ET.
