With all sporting events likely to remain muted until 2021, demand for sporting goods such as sports apparel, gloves, and equipment has and will remain impacted.

The ruins of the global economy are made up of failed, collapsing, choking, struggling and decimated industries & businesses and among the vanquished is the apparel industry.
