6 April: Where’s the action?
iGB, in partnership with sports data specialist Abelson Info, is providing an updated list of the sporting events taking place each weekday throughout the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
This will ensure our readers have a regularly updated roster of the sporting events happening that day. The format has been tweaked, with a full table of the day's action at the bottom of the page.
While there is no basketball – a regular feature of the first week of sporting events – darts returns today (6 April). This comes in the form of the Icons of Darts Live League, which sees past and present stars of the sport compete against one another virtually, all playing from home. This will be streamed live online, and takes the form of a series of round robin leagues taking place from Monday to Saturday, with the winner to be crowned on 2 May.
Events in Australia and the US take place after Abelson's 10:59am cut-off.
As usual the bulk of action takes place in Australia, while just two US tracks are holding races today.
As usual, today's ice hockey events take place in Eastern Europe, in Russia and Belarus.
Ukraine's Setka Cup continues today, as does Russia's Liga Pro and the TT Star Series in the Czech Republic.
A few exhibition matches are scheduled for today, the first time there has been tennis action since iGB and Abelson started this daily round-up.
Russia's Liga Pro is scheduled to hold matches today, while the country's Ural Volleyball Championships will also be running.
This list is not intended to be exhaustive, and all events are subject to change. iGB is working on adding an esports component to this round-up.
