While many professional leagues have postponed or cancelled their seasons until further notice, the National Football League(NFL) has published their schedule for the 2020-21 season.

Unlike other professional leagues, the NFL was not interrupted by COVID-19. As they were in offseason during the start of lockdown, they have been able to proceed with their scheduled events virtually. 

Considering the timing and facts of the virus, there is reason for sports fans to be optimistic about getting one full season of something this year.  

As stated by Pro Football Talk, “Per sources with direct knowledge of both the NFL’s deliberations and the current and expected medical and scientific developments in the coming weeks and months, there is an ‘extremely small’ chance that there will be no NFL season in 2020.”

The league released the schedule for their 2020-21 season, hoping to start in mid-September. Tickets for the season are now on sale as they look forward to having fans in the stands. This is the best-case scenario and is subject to change due to constant updates on the pandemic.
