Sports bind us together in unimaginable ways. But with the shutdown of nearly all U.S. sporting activities during the COVID-19 pandemic, teams, fans, players, staff and others have been sidelined.
In this special GeekWire live streamed event on Thursday, July 16, we’ll discuss how sports can safely return; what technologies will be deployed to ensure a seamless transition; and the economics of sports in the age of COVID-19. Registration is free, but space is limited so make sure to sign up here. A big thanks to sponsors Pure Storage and Davis Wright Tremaine for sponsoring this GeekWire event.
Our panelists include:
Pat Chun, Washington State University director of athletics.
Jennifer Cohen, University of Washington director of athletics.
Adrian Hanauer, majority owner of Seattle Sounders FC.
