Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said he's aiming for sports to resume practice and playing in the state as soon as this week.
"That may not be the case in every other state in this country as we've seen and so what I would tell commissioners of leagues is if you have a team in an area where they just won't let them operate. We'll find a place for you here in the state of Florida, because we think it's important and we know that it can be done safely," DeSantis said Wednesday.
Sport teams that play in the state will not necessarily have fans, according to DeSantis.
"We want to have the basketball practicing again, we would love to have the Major League Baseball and I think the message is that our people are starved to have some of this back in their lives, it's important part of people's lives," the governor said.
Florida is already hosting two charity golf tournaments, DeSantis said.
"All professional sports are welcome here for practicing and for playing," the governor said.
DeSantis said he will announce plans for sports "probably this week."
