The Sports Comeback Continues: All the Action From June That You’ll Want to See Again

And just like that we got a bunch more sports back in June! In fact, after months of drought, we were spoiled for choice, with European football leagues rushing to finish their seasons it caused a nice headache for fans over which game to watch. Add to mix the likes of Australia’s AFL, New Zealand’s Basketball League, Spain’s Basketball League and the return of PGA Tour, sports fans could plan out an entire days worth of viewing. Who needs to leave the couch anyway?!

Charles Schwab Challenge

Golf fans were delighted with the return of their beloved sport with the Charles Schwab Challenge going ahead at Colonial Country Club, Fort Worth, Texas. Collin Morikawa narrowly missed out on lifting the cup after his putt agonizingly lipped out following a stellar tournament performance.

Failure to sink this putt crowned the equally impressive Daniel Berger as tournament champion. Here he is, keeping a nice social distance, following his win…

Before we move away from Golf, check out this shot from the Travelers Championship towards the end of June. It doesn’t matter what sport you play, you have to admire the creativity to sink this one…

Aussie Rules

There’s nothing quite like Australian Rules Football and it was back to it’s brilliant best in June. The AFL received a nice boost to its viewership globally back in March from hungry sports fans (whose sports were on hold) when Round 1 was just getting started, before it too took a break. Here’s the first goal scored following the sport’s 81 day coronavirus pause…

And of course it just wouldn’t be the AFL without a little fisticuffs, it’s all part of the fun!

Well this actually landed West Coast Eagles’ Jeremy McGovern, in hot water receiving a one-match suspension for his strike on Gold Coast’s Alex Sexton. Naughty, naughty.


OK we featured the return of Nascar in last month’s sports roundup, but this ending to the Talladega Superspeedway this June was just too cool not to put in! Here’s driver Aric Almirola in his Ford spinning backwards into a third place finish…

Liga Endesa

Spanish basketball returned to finish its season in June, successfully running two busy weeks of matches which culminated in Baskonia pipping Barcelona, to the title in emphatic style on June 30th.

We met with Liga ACB back in May to hear how they’ve been keeping fans entertained during the lockdown…

Football Time

June saw the return of the English Premier League, Spain’s La Liga, Italy’s Serie A, among others. The German Bundesliga, which was one of the first sports to return (coming back in early May), concluded in June with Bayern Munich winning their eighth title in a row! Here’s them lifting each of the trophies (cue the cheesy German music)…

Looking at the bottom of the Bundesliga table for a second we saw Werder Bremen avoid relegation in the most unbelievable way on the final day of the season…

Over in England the Premier League kicked off to a bunch of controversy over a disallowed goal which left Sheffield United fans fuming…

I know, how was that not a goal?! Why didn’t VAR intervene? The one time you need them to. Who knows?! At least goaline technology company Hawk-Eye had the decency to put out this statement…

Oh and if it wasn’t already clear and obvious, like months and months ago, runaway league leaders Liverpool FC secured their first ever Premier League trophy (following 30 painful years of not winning a domestic league title)!!

We also saw the return of the FA Cup, which was into the quarter-final stage as the coronavirus hit. Here’s captain Harry Maguire sending Manchester United through to the semi-finals with a goal in extra time against Norwich. Not all goals are beautiful, but they all count the same! United now face Chelsea in the semi-finals, with Arsenal taking on Manchester City.

Looking Ahead

We’re all set for an action packed July!
