Top 55 Sports Trends in April

From Free Soccer Streaming Agreements to Spiky Cushioned Golf Shoes

— May 3, 2020 — Lifestyle
The April 2020 sports trends are passionate and honor the many different athletic concepts in the world of sports. As the world comes to a standstill with the recent COVID-19 outbreak, many sports associations are finding new ways for fans and athletes to continue enjoying their favorite teams and their plays. One example is the NWSL, the National Women's Soccer League and its collaboration with Twitch and CBS Sport, streaming up to 87 soccer matches for fans to watch.

Another sports trend this month is a launch by Jordan Brand, adding the ADG 2 sneaker to its Golf line-up. The brand is often recognized for its basketball footwear and the latest design boasts all the functionalities for golfing in a visual design reminiscent of what is worn on the basketball courts.
