Cuomo says New York State will work with professional sports leagues to return

On Monday, Governor Andrew Cuomo was in Buffalo, and noted that he wants to see the Bills and other professional sports teams return.

But he admitted that it could be a challenge – depending on the league.

Fans would not be included – at least at the start – but he noted that New York would support the teams in bringing back live sports – for television or otherwise.

“If they [the teams] can make the numbers work, I say great,” Cuomo said. “The state will work with you.”

Many have argued that seeing sports come back would be a shot of ‘normalcy’ that is desperately needed.

Major League Baseball and the National Basketball Association are looking at ways of returning to play.
