Brazilian football may restart in June, CBF says

first_imgRelatedPosts Club’s server collapses over ticket demand for first Bundesliga game in 11 years Awoniyi joins Union Berlin on loan RB Leipzig get approval for some fans in stadium at season opening match Brazilian football could restart at the end of June, the secretary general of the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF), Walter Feldman, said on Tuesday.This is coming in spite of the fact that the number of coronavirus cases is still rising in South America’s hardest-hit nation. Feldman said the return to action in the German Bundesliga, where nine first division games were played last weekend after a two-month hiatus, was a positive example for world football.“It was necessary to stop and returning is possible,” Feldman said. “That is what we learnt from the return of football in Germany. Germany is a great sign.“Doors open in May, more open in June and I have no doubt that in June, with the return of training, sustained protocols and the chance of flexibility by the health authorities, football can return with restrictions,” Feldman said.Some Brazilian teams have begun training again, with current champions Flamengo recalling players on Monday.The positive note came a day after Brazil became the country with the third-highest number of confirmed infections behind the US and Russia. Brazil recorded a record high 1,179 coronavirus deaths on Tuesday, according to the Health Ministry, and announced a total of 271,628 cases.Brazil’s state championships were suspended in March and were due to finish in April.The national leagues were scheduled to kick off in early May and end in December, but Feldman acknowledged this year’s league season could run into 2021.Any restart would likely happen without fans present and with all the same social distancing restrictions that fans saw in Germany over the weekend also in place, he added.All Latin America’s professional football leagues were suspended except for Nicaragua, although Costa Rica’s league was due to restart on Tuesday.

NSC, GABF imbroglio continues

first_img…Jones says no comment as GABF says $3.5M insufficientDIRECTOR of Sport Christopher Jones says he will not, at this time, be commenting on a statement made by the Guyana Amateur Basketball Federation (GABF) that a $3.5M cheque issued earlier this month was not enough.GABF president Nigel Hinds says the National Sports Commission (NSC) owes a total of $7.8M, and the “NSC must understand that the debt will be fully paid, and time is of essence”. Hinds in a statement said that on February 3 last the GABF received, from the NSC, a cheque for $3.5M, and there is a “stated intent not to repay the balance due of $4.5M”.“The NSC have somehow made $3.5M equivalent $7.8M. The same logic that spurred them to pay $3.5M linked to GABF, part payment towards the new basketball goals, should apply with equal force to the capital type expenditures made by the GABF to prepare CASH for the Championships,” the statement said.Jones confirmed that the NSC issued the cheque but said he could comment no further. Jones says he will not be responding to the issue until the GABF sends an official statement to the NSC regarding their concerns.“I haven’t received any correspondence from the GABF, and as such I am not inclined to comment anything on it. If we receive a query or anything from them, then we would be able to comment. If there’s an issue they’re supposed to write us, but we haven’t seen any correspondence from them.” Jones said when contacted yesterday.Christopher JonesThis ongoing imbroglio between NSC and GABF comes over funds allegedly owed to GABF and Hinds for renovation works done on the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall (CASH) to upgrade it for the hosting of the Caribbean Basketball Confederation U-16 Championships which was held last year July. CASH is a state-owned facility.The money spent was reportedly for the carpeting of VIP area and 3 rooms, wall partitions, door for VIP washroom, two urinals with fittings; construction works on first responders’ room, kitchen, walkway, and balcony rooms; and repairs to washroom as well as replacement of sinks at the National Gymnasium, among other capital expenditures.Hinds said that the NSC verbally committed to repaying the funds and the non-repayment after six months is “insensible and indefensible”.Hinds has been lobbying for the monies to be repaid since last year, and the NSC since then said that they would repay Hinds G$3,514,000 which represented money used to purchase basketball goals for the CBC event, but did not cover the other works. Hinds maintained that everything has to be paid for.The issue eventually boiled over and saw Hinds, a then commissioner at the NSC, resign with immediate effect on August 12, 2016, after less than one year on the job.Hinds made it clear that he was resigning over the issue of the unpaid funds.last_img read more

Syracuse looks to exploit youthful Cornell team, rely on own experience

first_img Published on January 29, 2015 at 12:03 am Facebook Twitter Google+ Cornell head coach Mike Stevens didn’t have a definite answer when asked which of his freshmen he would pit against Syracuse in Saturday’s match.One name that did come up, though, was first-year player Lizzie Stewart. But despite Stewart being a go-to option as a freshman for Cornell, there are five other first-year players that don’t boast nearly as much experience as the Orange does.When Cornell (0-2) visits Drumlins Tennis Center in Syracuse’s first home match of the year Saturday at noon, it will bring the largest freshman class of any team the Orange (3-1) will face this season. While Cornell faces the process of developing its young lineup, Syracuse will attempt to capitalize on its seniority to overcome the Big Red.The Orange’s lineup is comprised mostly of returning players, with the exception of freshman Nicole Mitchell. Syracuse also boasts three seniors, while Cornell has none.“We’ve had a strong start and a lot of that does go into experience because we carry over momentum from the past matches and the past seasons,” Syracuse senior Komal Safdar said.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe momentum that has clicked for the Orange has been difficult for Cornell to produce, with the Big Red falling to both Mississippi State and Brown in its first two matches. Often, simply having a year’s experience of college tennis can improve one’s game tremendously, Syracuse senior Breanna Bachini said.“Throughout my time here, especially since I was a freshman, you grow, you change, you learn new things,” Bachini said. “When you’re a freshman getting here, you’re just figuring everything out.”That transition, and how Cornell’s freshmen handle it on Saturday, may be a key factor in whether Syracuse’s experience gives it an edge over the Big Red.Cornell’s youth won’t be a huge factor but that the Orange can still exploit the Big Red’s lack of experience, said SU senior Amanda Rodgers, who’s a contributing writer for The Daily Orange. While Cornell might be the younger team on the court, Stewart still poses a threat to Syracuse.She won her singles matchup 6-2, 4-6, 6-2, in the 3-2 loss to Brown and so far has compiled a 1-1 record in both singles and doubles events through the first two matches of the season.“Some (freshmen) have that talent level and will make that transition (to college) smoothly,” Stevens said. “Elizabeth is one of them. I don’t care about who she goes up against, she’ll battle and do her best to fight and get a good win for us.”And with Cornell’s lack of experience compared to SU’s, Stewart may have to do just that despite SU head coach Younes Limam not looking too much into the freshman’s prominence for CU.“It depends how you look at it,” Limam said. “Sometimes the freshmen, they come in without expectations and they just swing free, and don’t really feel the nerves or the pressure. We’ll see how Cornell is going to be on Saturday, but we just have to focus on ourselves and focus on the things we do well.” Commentslast_img read more

LA Clippers get bruised Cavs at start of tough road trip

first_imgIt’s true the L.A. Clippers recently won 10 consecutive games and nine without Blake Griffin.Yet there was nothing difficult about the list of opponents during that stretch. Only two games came against teams — Charlotte and Miami — that were over .500 at the time.Still, it was impressive because the Clippers were sans Griffin, who Monday missed his 11th game in a row with a partially torn left quad tendon.After Monday’s 140-132 overtime victory over the Houston Rockets at Staples Center, Griffin was seen walking through the hallway in quick fashion. He seemed fine, but coach Doc Rivers would not commit to playing Griffin at Cleveland on Thursday, when the Clippers (27-14) begin a difficult five-game East Coast swing. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “The teams we’re going out to play don’t lose a lot at home, so it’s going to be a hard trip for us.”The Cavaliers are 15-2 at home, the Raptors 12-6, the Hawks 15-7 and the Pacers 13-6. Even the Knicks, the only team currently under .500, is 12-8 at Madison Square Garden.Redick on fireJ.J. Redick scored a career-high 40 points Monday. He shot 11 of 19 overall. But he was marvelous from 3-point range, where he made 9 of 12.Afterward, he was asked about the zone he was in with his shot.“I do not know that it is the best I have felt shooting the ball,” he said. “I feel like I missed a couple mid-range shots I would have normally made. It was one of those games where neither team could get a stop. There were several players that were a beneficiary of that, myself included.”Although the Rockets did not shoot all that well from beyond the arc — 34.4 percent (11 of 32) — they did shoot 50 percent overall. The Clippers shot 51.6 percent overall and an almost unbelievable 59.5 percent (22 of 37) from long distance.The 22 3-pointers were a franchise high and one shy of the NBA record.DJ is backCenter DeAndre Jordan had missed the previous two games with pneumonia. He came back Monday to score 16 points, grab 15 rebounds and block two shots in 41 minutes.“I was going to try to play (the last two games), but it was tough,” said Jordan, who had his streak of 360 consecutive games snapped. “I couldn’t stand up, so I knew I wouldn’t be very effective. It was pretty bad. I just wanted to play and be there for my team.”center_img “I mean, I don’t know,” said Rivers, whose team had lost five consecutive games to Houston dating to this past season’s Western Conference semifinals. “Blake is looking a lot better. I personally doubt it, but I know he wants to; he’s going to give it a try. But I personally doubt that he makes that game. I think there is a better chance now that he’s going to play on the road trip. I just can’t tell you when.”Big testThis trip will indeed be challenging for the Clippers. After playing Eastern Conference-leading Cleveland (28-11 as of Tuesday), which was smashed by 34 points (132-98) by Golden State at home Monday, the Clippers make stops in New York (21-22), Toronto (26-15), Indiana (22-19) and Atlanta (25-17).Toronto is No. 2 in the East, Atlanta No. 4.“They all play different,” Rivers said. “I’m looking forward to the challenge. This is a good road trip, because it’s hard. There are not a lot of easy games on this trip, so you have to go out and play and you have to play well to win.last_img read more
