Florida governor invites all pro sports teams to play in his state

The state of Florida wants your professional sports team. This afternoon, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis invited pro sports teams in states that have yet to allow sports to resume to come to the Sunshine State for practices and games.

“All these professional sports are going to be welcome here in Florida,” DeSantis said. “That may not be the case in every state in this country, as we’ve seen, so what I would tell commissioners of leagues is, if you have a team in an area where they just won’t let them operate, we’ll find a place for you here in the state of Florida because we think it’s important and we know that it can be done safely.”

Last month, the Florida Division of Emergency Management deemed professional sports an essential service provided they are closed to the general public. Arizona Governor Doug Ducey announced yesterday that professional sports would be allowed to resume in his state on March 16. The NBA has already floated the idea of holding games at Walt Disney World in Orlando and Las Vegas, while the MLB released a plan earlier this week to start an abbreviated version of the season starting in July with no fans.

Here come your…Tallahassee Titans?

    I think the Az Governor said sports could resume without fans on MAY 16, not March.
