Transcript for NBA in talks with Disney to use sports complex and resume 2019-2020 season
This is the news sports fans have been craving. There are signs this morning that the NBA could be making some progress to return to the court and kids are hitting the fields as well. ABC's Andrew dymburt joins us from capital one arena, good morning. Reporter: Good morning, Dan. A return to sports looks like it's going on start with the NBA, but fans shouldn't expect to see packed arenas any time soon. Meanwhile, both professional and amateur sports could be making a return very soon. Lebron, to the rim! Reporter: Don't call it a comeback. They decided to postpone this game. Reporter: But the NBA is looking to bounce back after being benched since early March in wake of the global covid-19 crisis. The association is in talks with the Walt Disney company to continue the 2019/2020 season in July at the ESPN wide world of sports complex at the Disney world resort in Orlando. Disney is the parent company of ABC news. They're looking for a single site location, where they didn't have to have all 30 of their teams crisscrossing the country. Reporter: With some regions still following stay-at-home orders and practice facilities shuttered, teams are asking the NBA whether players can bypass those cities and report directly to the proposed campus in Orlando to start training. This according to ESPN. The Disney complex is really a perfect location, it's 250,000 square acres, three arenas, they got plenty of facilities for eating and practicing and weight rooms and things like that. Reporter: And from the court to the gridiron in the national football league, the commissioner now authorizing the reopening of all team facilities this week in accordance with state and local regulations. As college athletics also take a step forward, voluntary activities starting next month. High school athletes are gearing up, too. The national federation of state high school associations coming out with new guidelines for schools to consider when reopening sports. In our phases of guidance, we do say that those higher risk situations would be phased in at a slower pace. Reporter: Even little league is on deck, ready to swing back into action. In Florida, a 70-team youth baseball tournament is under way. At an 85-acre facility. We eliminated our box office and people arriving here to purchase tickets. Avoids long lines, avoids cash exchanging hands. Reporter: But medical experts have warned against reopening including sports too quickly. By the way, most of these comeback plans are slated to take place in Florida. Whit. All right, Andrew, thanks so much.
