We all know the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted every aspect of daily life, and sports for both fans and players have not been spared. As we adjust to a new reality, some sports are finding ways to slowly return under new rules and circumstances.

At the same time, fans are looking for ways to engage with their favorite leagues, tournaments, teams and players. In fact, a recent IBM survey on sports and technology showed that nearly half of sports fans said having an interactive digital experience has become more important to them since the COVID-19 outbreak, highlighting the importance of creating new technology for fans.

IBM works with a range of sports organizations, events and teams including tennis (US Open and Wimbledon), golf (The Masters), soccer (The Women’s World Cup) and football (via ESPN Fantasy Football). Through these partnerships, IBM reimagines the game for fans, players and coaches alike.
