The COVID-19 coronavirus is clearly affecting people all over the world in many facets of life, unfortunately, the live event industry which is an industry that is built on people getting together, cheering and celebrating has been impacted in a significant way. Currently, there is a very big cloud hovering over many upcoming sporting events, music & theatre shows, tournaments and leagues.

There are many questions rising from fans that bought tickets or are planning to attend a future event and question whether these events will actually take place. Here at SeatPick, our mission has always been clear, help fans find the best deals and information on the ticket market and although our industry is taking a hit, our mission remains the same.

We have gathered a list of events that are currently affected and with the potential of being affected in the near future, we will try and keep this as updated as possible in the coming weeks, through our social channels and on this post as well. Any information that we publish here is based on the most relevant sources that we managed to find, but if you indeed bought a ticket or planning to purchase a ticket to any of these events we suggest that you check the status of the event on the official site for the most accurate information.
