Sachu P S
The outbreak and rapid spread of covid-19 pandemic adversely affected not only human health but also different National and International sectors, including education, commerce, finance and sports. This study primarily exposes the implications of covid-19 era in sports and related disciplines around the globe. Due to innumerable reasons, many players at the global, provisional and public levels have dropped their sports career or are still deferred in a pandemic. Many sports meets and tournaments have been delayed or cancelled, which distressed many sports industries, sponsors and even the mental health of sportsmen. The surge in the covid cases led to the shutting down of training schools, recreation centres, swimming pools etc. This eventually resulted in financial repercussions and a subsequent decline in social development. This study also puts forth integral ideas to resume and promote the pandemic affected games and competitions to create a balance between sustainable sports amidst the pandemic era.
