Ben Stokes' incredible performance to help England win the Cricket World Cup.
The nailbiting Netball World Cup Final

And that winning goal from Vincent Kompany.
We were spoilt for sporting choice in 2019. Great memories with friends and family; unforgettable moments you had to share on social media.
Then think back to the start of 2020. Most of us were expecting Liverpool to win the Premier League title earlier in the calendar year than any club has done before, and we were all dreaming of the summer of sport ahead. How long ago that feels now.
The global pandemic’s abrupt and devastating impact has been felt across the world and we’re now in the critical phase of coping with its lasting effects.
I know the impact has been felt deeply by the sports industry, at so many levels. We have an unknown journey ahead of us, but it’s promising to see the path become clearer with the return of football, golf, F1 and cricket in the last month.
While we and our customers relish the return of sport, we understand the importance of working with the industry to ensure there is no immediate jeopardy. The safety of the athletes, our Sky colleagues and all those working to bring sport back, is our number one priority. And we can assure our dedicated teams that we are taking all the necessary steps to comply with government guidelines on testing and social distancing.
