Tiger Fight, October 24, according to ESPN reports, the league council will meet today to discuss plans for the next season.
According to sources, the theme of this meeting is: start next season as soon as possible, shorten the schedule of 82 regular season games and no longer wait for fans to enter the stadium.
According to previous reports, the league's goal is to start the new season on January 18, 2021. It is hoped that fans will enter the stadium while playing 82 games. But recently, some team owners have discussed this matter, questioning its feasibility, and hope to start the new season as early as Christmas.
According to a report by reporter Marc Stein, league sources said that the possibility of the 2020-21 season starting on Christmas Day is increasing because it can please the league’s TV partners.
According to additional reports, the league has never completely ruled out the option to start the next season on Christmas, but all the signs shown in the quarter-finals show that the next season will start in 2021.
According to sources, the time of October 30 will be very critical. In previous reports, the league and the players union postponed the deadline set by agreements such as the salary cap for next season to October 30. In addition, according to regulations, the league needs to notify the team eight weeks in advance after the schedule is determined, and October 30 is exactly eight weeks before Christmas.
