Europa League

Recent events in the Europa League went viral among soccer fans. The match between Arsenal and Benfica at Stadio Olimpico, Rome, on February 19, was one of those events. The big match between two traditionally strong teams from Portugal and England ended with a tie at 1-1. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the match was held at a neutral stadium, although still considered Benfica’s home field, according to the UEFA. Because of this home-and-away rule, Arsenal met Benfica at the supposedly neutral stadium with a small advantage. The second vital match ended with a 3-2 Arsenal victory on February 26.

NBA

One of the biggest basketball events in the world now revealed itself. The 2021 NBA All-Star Game will be held at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, GA, on March 7. With the All-Star lineup now revealed, there are tensions, as always, with the lineup divided into “Team Lebron” and “Team Durant.” 

The All-Star Draft, along with many other contests, will be held at the State Farm Arena. However, player obstacles stand in the way, with a majority of the players objecting to the big event and festivities. But due to the potential for revenue, the NBA office stated that they will still continue as planned.

The All-Star Game is a big event for basketball fans worldwide, and the NBA has made sure to take extra care of the safety issues regarding COVID-19.
