Spooky Sport-Empty: The silly season is here again

The great summer of sport was long a tale from the past. Just like in the Bundesliga-Dino HSV. Or the notorious Bayern-Dusel, it does not need more of that today. If the king of football stood all of two years without a European championship or world Cup, has filled the gap is always good. With even more football in the first place, of course. Formerly with the confederations Cup and, more recently, with the Nations League, in the future, with a puffed-up Fifa club world Cup.

in addition, the "rest of sports took advantage of" this time like to call to the audience in memory. The "European Championships" as a kind of European Mini-Olympic, or "The Finals", a conglomerate of German Championships in Berlin, were the youngest and most promising approaches. Added to this were established the summer of Highlights, such as Tennis at Wimbledon and Cycling in the Tour de France.

But 2020 is far different, and suddenly a hole is going to be in the German sports budget. The ghostly Bundesliga season has ended, and except for a couple of Europe Cup participants hardly anyone on the football fields of the Nation to be haunted currently. The Olympics, European football Championships, Wimbledon, the Tour – everything is cancelled or postponed.

And so raise the Corona fog suddenly events, of which the inclined viewers would otherwise have no notice taken. Beautiful sports they offer anyway. The Sibiu Tour in Romania, for instance, which is used with your concept of Hygiene as a trial run for the Large loop in France. The world athletics Gala in Regensburg as well. The impression from since long time open summer hole can not prevent these Events, of course. However, it will remain a one-off. Because in 2021, the narrative could work in the summer of of holes as a modern fairy tale.
