When athletes and coaches in the sports entertainment industry travel for games, are they given time to explore the location they are playing at or are they only able to attend the game?

I watch a lot of sports and notice that games are hosted all over the world, but I was not sure if the athletes are able to visit the place their games are at, or simply attend practices and games and stay in their hotel room. #athlete #sport #sports #sports-management

With COVID-19 things are changing. Most leagues are requiring all players and support staff to stay isolated in a bubble. Before COVID athletes normally would fly into the city the night before a game, often late at night if they played the previous day, have a practice or team meeting in the morning, free time/lunch/nap in the afternoon, then report to the arena to prepare to play. Most pro and college athletes have little time between team activities to explore the city. Most of their free time is spent resting. There are rare occasions where the team may spend an extra day in an away city. If the team has an extra night they may have an informal team dinner. If you are a pro athlete your job is to perform your best on the field. You have plenty of time to enjoy traveling during the offseason.

I'm certain they do. Of course, they have to split time between practice, team meetings, press conferences, etc. But it's very likely that in their free time they have the opportunity to get out and explore. I would!

Isaac 💻🎥’s Answer

A professional athlete is performance-based, with games in mind the athlete and team may have time to explore the city, with the COVID virus, many teams will be taking precautions and limiting city exposure, during pre-COVID a team could explore and visit cities in the offseason and mention them in the press conferences, having worked in the sports industry some of the cities teams extended offer for recognition of city landmarks local events.


A lot had to be considered being on a team, their rivalries with other team cities, for example, the Boca Junior vs. River plate teams have huge team rivalries and it's difficult for players to explore the city.

Conditions in the city ( health, team rivalries, length until game)
