SportsPro Live postponed

SportsPro Live, a sports industry event which was set to take place from the 27th April to the 29th, has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

SportsPro had to postpone their OTT Asia event as well, which will now take place in Singapore, October 21-22.

A statement from SportsPro read…

“After careful consideration, and having closely monitored the ongoing impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in line with the UK Government’s latest recommendations, SportsPro has taken the difficult decision to postpone SportsPro Live, scheduled to take place in London on 27 – 29 April.

“Amid continued uncertainty as to the spread and evolving impact of the Coronavirus, the decision has been taken with the safety and wellbeing of our colleagues, partners, attendees and communities being our main priority.

“We are currently reviewing alternative dates later in the year and want to limit the amount of disruption involved for all by giving updates with as much notice as possible. We also appreciate that many of you will be facing your own challenges in light of this unprecedented situation.

“Further information will be released in due course. Any passes registered for the event will, of course, remain valid for the new dates once announced. If you have any questions or concerns surrounding the postponement or the event, in general, please don’t hesitate to email us at events@sportspromedia.com or call us on +44 (0)20 7549 3250.”

This is the latest in many sports industry events that have had to be cancelled/postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
