7 April: Where's the action?

7 April 2020

iGB, in partnership with sports data specialist Abelson Info, is providing an updated list of the sporting events taking place each weekday throughout the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

This will ensure our readers have a regularly updated roster of the sporting events happening that day. The format has been tweaked, with a full table of the day's action at the bottom of the page.

The Icons of Darts tournament continues today, with Wessel Nijman leading the standings after the first day.

With the Tajikistan Premier League kicking off on 4 April, this also heralded the return of its Reserve League, which holds matches today.

Yesterday it was announced that the 149th Open Championship, due to take place in July in England, had been shifted to 2021, with three other men's majors shifted back to later in the year. However today the Outlaw Tour's Orange Tree Classic will tee off in Arizona.

Events in Australia and the US take place after Abelson's 10:59am cut-off.

Horse Racing
Today's US and Australian schedule narrows slightly, with racing taking place at just two US tracks, Nebraska's Fonner Park and Oklahoma's Will Rogers Downs. There is, as usual, a fuller schedule in Australia.

Ice Hockey
Russia's Liga Pro holds matches today, with no matches scheduled for Belarus' Minsk Championship.

Table Tennis
Table tennis, as usual, takes place across Russia, Ukraine and the Czech Republic.

This list is not intended to be exhaustive, and all events are subject to change. iGB is working on adding an esports component to this round-up.
