Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditThe Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world:___The Milwaukee Brewers have canceled their 2021 Brewers On Deck event, an annual January showcase that allows thousands of fans to meet current and former players and coaches in a convention hall. The NCAA this week announced it would not conduct championship events in sports where at least 50% percent of the participating schools do not play a fall regular season. Unless Pioneer League schools pursue a football season as independents, the number of FCS schools that have canceled fall football is 68 out of 127.The Big Sky was also expected to announce soon whether it will play in the fall.___The Southeastern Conference will require football players and others in direct contact with the program to be tested at least twice weekly during the season.The league on Friday released its initial COVID-19 requirements for fall sports, including football. In football, the testing will typically come six days and three days before competition. The Brewers said that the decision was made with “the health and safety of the community in mind.”“It’s impossible to know at this time what restrictions may be in place that would require a different footprint or format for Brewers On Deck in January,” Brewers president of business operations Rick Schlesinger said in a statement. “It takes many months of lead time for our staff to plan and execute the event, and with so many uncertainties we unfortunately have to make this decision now.”___The Pioneer League will not play a fall football schedule, a decision that likely means there will be no FCS playoffs this season.The 11-team Pioneer League spans from the Midwest to the West Coast. The conference said in a statement the challenges related to team travel, meeting state, local and institutional health requirements and COVID-19 mitigation strategies led to the decision. The Pioneer League said it would consider playing a football season at another point in the school year if feasible. August 7, 2020 The Latest: Brewers cancel January fan event What did cricket fans do when there was no live games to watch during lockdown in the coronavirus pandemic?Watched replays. Lots of replays.The International Cricket Council released figures Friday showing it had 1.65 billion video views on its Facebook channel in the first half of 2020, saying it “topped the rankings in terms of video consumption among leading sports bodies” on the social media platform.Cricket was shuttered globally from late March until last month, when host England beat West Indies 2-1 in a three-test series that was played inside bio-secure venues in Southampton and Manchester.The ICC, citing statistics from the CrowdTangle analytics tool, said daily video consumption on its Facebook page increased from 3 million minutes viewed to 15 million minutes per day during the lockdown. Coaches, staff and other personnel will be required to wear face coverings on the sidelines at sporting events this fall.The initial guidelines include testing requirements, procedures for infections and contact tracing and protocols for quarantine and isolation. The rules, which also apply to volleyball and soccer, were recommended by the SEC’s Return to Activity and Medical Guidance Task Force.The league expects the task force to release another report by Aug. 31.___ The Detroit Lions are preparing to host fans at all eight regular-season home games, although it’s uncertain how many will be allowed to attend.The NFL club said Friday season-ticket holders can opt out of purchasing tickets for the 2020 season if they want. The team also is offering various incentives for fans who defer payments to the 2021 season instead of asking for refunds.Fans and employees at Ford Field would be required to wear face coverings. Designated gates and entry times would be assigned to fans.The team says the ability to host fans at a reduced capacity depends on local and state approval.___ Associated Press “At a time when COVID-19 has severely impacted live sports, the ICC’s channels have gone from strength to strength,” the ICC said in a statement.Cricket hit some highs in terms of viewership over the 12 months to June, including the 1.1 billion views for the Women’s Twenty20 World Cup in Australia in February and March.Online traffic from India helped. The final between Australia and India, which attracted a crowd of more than 86,000 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, set a single-day record for women’s tournament with 64.9 million views on the ICC Facebook page.___More AP sports: https://apnews.com/apf-sports and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
â€œStaying together to see out the game after the team was reduced to 10 men must be applauded. These boys braced all odds to achieve a result that will see the team play in their first final since the inception of CHAN.“I must commend the team for a job well done despite coming with a great price tag. We were all worried when the captain and number 1 choice goalkeeper, Ikechukwu Ezenwa got injured earlier in the first half and had to be replaced by Dele Ajiboye.â€œWith strings of world-class saves, Ajiboye proved to be a dependable hand that any team would have wanted on such a night when the Sudanese threw everything at the team,â€ the minister noted with relish.Speaking ahead of the finals, Dalung enjoined the team to go all out on Sunday and shock Morocco by winning the title.Despite admitting that playing against the host in the final of any competition is the toughest task any team can embark on, he is optimistic about the teamâ€™s chances against Morocco who earlier defeated Libya 3-1 in extra time are bright.â€œMr President is watching the tournament and following the progress of the team. With Nigerians always wanting to win, bringing the title home will be the perfect way to satisfy Nigerians.â€Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram The Minister of Youth and Sports, Solomon Dalung, has congratulated the Home-based Eagles for clinching a ticket to the final of the CHAN 2018 after a 1-0 victory over Sudan.â€œI am so excited about this team and millions of football loving Nigerians who are rooting for the team to succeed in Morocco.â€œThey have shown that they are a work in progress as they continue to improve with every game,â€ stressed Dalung.The minister praised the team for staying strong in the face of adversity to qualify for their first final since the inception of the competition after Ifeanyi Ifeanyi got sent off very early in the second half for a second bookable offence of the night.

Donegal County Council has insisted the repair and upgrade work will not interfere with tourists in the area.The chopper begins to take loads of stone up to the cliff pathways.Many tourists gathered at the cliffs yesterday to see the reapir work commence.Local TD Thomas Pringle had appealed to the council to defer the work from this week and put it back to September.However, the council said the work which takes place throughout the week, was weather dependent.
