Written evidence submitted by Sportz Management Limited
In relation to the above-mentioned call for evidence, we are a Sports Events company that derives all of its revenue from running sports events and managing sports leagues.
Whilst the small business relief grant and the short term government assistance with paying our employees who have been furloughed is much appreciated, this is not a situation which will be sustainable in the long run, as we will just be treading water and not moving forward in any way shape or form.
Our income since mid-March has been zero and due to the Summer being our normal busiest time for sports events and leagues, we will in all likelihood not make any income for the rest of the year.
Whilst appreciating the health concerns relating to the Covid-19 pandemic, we do need to highlight the obvious economic impact this will have on our and others businesses.
