Trump Tells Sports Commissioners NFL Should Start on Time

On Saturday morning, President Donald Trump told a group of major American sports commissioners that he believes the NFL should be able to start on time this September, according to a report.

As ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports:

Donald Trump also told commissioners that he hopes to have fans back in stadiums and arenas by August and September, sources said, though it is currently unclear if medical experts find that to be a realistic timeline amid the current coronavirus pandemic.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver told those on the call the leagues were the first to shut down and that the leagues would love to lead the way in starting the economy once there was an “all clear” from public health officials, sources familiar with the call told ESPN.

The call included 12 major sports commissioners and top executives, including the NFL, NBA, Major League Baseball, NHL, Major League Soccer, WNBA, WWE Wrestling, the PGA Tour, UFC, IndyCar, LPGA, and Breeders Cup, according to a White House pool report.
