“Many of us are pondering when things will return to normal,” writes Schwab. “The short response is: never. Nothing will ever return to the ‘broken’ sense of normalcy that prevailed prior to the crisis because the coronavirus pandemic marks a fundamental inflection point in our global trajectory.”

third division soccer team SV Waldhof Mannheim expects major losses in the current season due to the ongoing corona virus pandemic. "There could be five million less sales," said managing director Markus Kompp of the "Rhein-Neckar Zeitung" (Monday). «Our total turnover for the whole of last season was a little under ten million. This means that the money would actually be used up after six months. So something has to be done quickly. If the situation does not improve beyond December, a new package of measures would have to be drawn up to support the clubs. "

The club is “better positioned than many other third division clubs” and would “be able to get by for a while without new outside capital”, said Kompp. Should no more spectators be admitted to the games by the end of the season, that would be “the absolute worst case” for the 38-year-old. They deliberately did not set any sporting goals for the season, said Kompp. "The main thing is to survive economically."

Koekkoek, 26, became an unrestricted free agent in October when the Chicago Blackhawks opted not to make him a qualifying offer. Many were surprised by the move, as Koekkoek enjoyed a career year in 2019-20 and to the tune of just $925K as well.
