The importance of spectator sports
The current Covid-19 pandemic has seen the cancelling and postponing of national and international sporting events across the world. From football to fencing, tennis to taekwondo, boxing to basketball, no sport has remained unscathed. As well as the massive economic implications, there have been other negative impacts from this lack of sport. Sport makes a massive contribution to the health and wellbeing of the population. And that is not just in terms of those taking part, but also of those spectating. Sporting events provide huge social benefits for individuals and communities. Supporting a team, be it football, basketball or cricket, provides a common connection and a sense of belonging. It gives people something to look forward to; meeting up with friends to go to a match, the subsequent post-match discussion and analysis.
The uniting influence of sport
Sport is now returning, albeit without the usual supporters and spectators. Social distancing rules still apply and crowds and gatherings are still to be avoided for fear of spreading the virus. But at least fans can watch or read about their team or favourite sport online, via social media, on the television and in the newspaper. The highs and lows of following a team or individual sportsperson are back.
People often make reference to the universal language of sport. Granted, it is widely acknowledged that sport unites people across the world. Whether a major international event, such as the Olympics or the football World Cup, or a smaller scale international sports event, sporting competitions bring together people from different cultures, countries, religions and backgrounds. The sports-related shared interest fosters understanding, tolerance and teamwork; another good reason that sport is back! But although sport is a universal language, when it comes to sporting information, documents and reports, professional translation is highly recommended.
