The United States’ pro sports calendar is completely wiped out for the time being.

The decisions to cancel came in a flurry after the NBA’s Wednesday night announcement that it was postponing its season at least 30 days due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Thursday saw Major League Soccer also pause 30 days, U.S. Soccer cancel national team games in March and April, the National Hockey League postpone until “it is appropriate and prudent” to resume play, Major League Baseball cancel Spring Training games and delay the start of the regular season at least two weeks, the XFL cancel the rest of its inaugural season, the PGA Tour cancelled all events through the first weekend of April, the Association of Tennis Professional suspend its tour for six weeks, and even the out-of-season National Football League cancel its annual league meeting.
