Professional Sports Sidelined: Pivoting Through Crisis

Wednesday, April 7, 2021 at 12:00pm

Virtual Event

Over the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic has severely disrupted the professional sports industry. Sports leagues have had to quickly adjust their business models, renegotiate collective bargaining agreements, shift their athletes to bubbles, force teams to renegotiate contracts, and play in empty stadiums. While some of these measures are temporary to accommodate the distinct needs of athletes, fans, and investors, their ripple effects will be felt for some time to come.

Join Harry Katz, the Jack Sheinkman Professor of Collective Bargaining at Cornell’s ILR School and Director of the Scheinman Institute, as he moderates a discussion among distinguished Cornellians at the forefront of making some of these difficult decisions.

This event is co-sponsored by Cornell Law School and the ILR School.
