It has been difficult to get anyone to listen to my concerns regarding professional boxers in the State of New York. The current Executive Order 202.3:

“Any gym, fitness centers or classes, and movie theaters shall also cease operation,

effective at 8 pm on March 16, 2020 until further notice.”

That order has not been changed or lifted at this point. The Executive Order is very broad and should have a review process for exceptions to this broad-based plan. In the beginning of June, Governor Cuomo allowe...

As the COVID-19 pandemic spread through the northern suburbs of New York City, major sporting arenas were closed, professional, collegiate and high school athletic programs furloughed, and gyms and training facilities were shuttered and locked. This did not deter one fiercely competitive and talented young woman from continuing her training.

Tony DeMatteo, head football coach at Somers High School in New York’s Westchester County, certainly knows a great deal about sports. He completed his 50th year a...

Cara Castronuova’s ‘Liberate New York’ campaign advocates protection of the Constitutional rights of all New Yorkers

In mid-march when the region’s NBA and NHL professional sports teams should have been headed towards their championships, and as major league baseball teams should have been gearing-up for their spring training, the 25,000 seats of Madison Square Garden’s main arena and Hulu theater sat empty. So did the 19,000 seats of the Barclay’s Center, 47,000 seats of Yankee Stadium, 42,000 seats...

MetroSports Magazine recently reported on the NBA2K League New York Knicks professional eSports team, Knicks Gaming, competing in the NBA’s virtual 2020 season. With the Covid-19 pandemic hitting the New York metropolitan area hard, and with major league, collegiate and amateur sports all on hold, eSports gaming has stepped in to fill the void. Although the FIA recently announced the cancellation of the scheduled July 11th Formula E NYC ePrix due to the unavailability of the Red Hook Brooklyn race co...

Editor's Note: As a digital publication catering to people engaged in sports and athletics and centered in one of the world’s major urban areas, it seemed only natural for MetroSports Magazine to review the Urbanista Athens wireless sport earbuds. Pitched by Urbanista as being “Designed For Life In Motion” we gave a pair to a 20 something resident of New York City’s Greenwich Village, a transplant from Nashville, Tennessee, by way of Hoboken, New Jersey, and a fitness enthusiast currently working wit...

Some might think that, under the Governor's imposed New York State Coronavirus Pause, the New York Metro area is a sports

ghost town. Yes, the N.Y. Knicks season was postponed exactly two months ago on March 13th and the Nets on March 12th, the Yankees and Mets season failed to open as scheduled on March 26th, the NY Islanders and Rangers have been on hiatus since March 12th and 14th respectively, the Ringmasters boxing tournament was postponed and there have been no spring collegiate sports includin...

Photographing sporting events provides an exciting and challenging opportunity for both amateur and professional photographers who wish to try new avenues of photographic expression and technical challenge.  As the American photojournalist and National Geographic photographer Jim Richardson has been quoted as saying, “if you want to be a better photographer, stand in front of more interesting stuff”.  The exciting and fast moving action, colorful uniforms, the range of emotions and facial expressions...

Help Kristina Esposito Racing and FDNY Racing Raise Funds for the Widows and Orphans of Heroes

For the past 222 years, members of the New York City Fire Department (FDNY) have been racing to the sites of disaster and putting their lives on the line in service of others. Three Hundred and Forty-Three sacrificed their lives on 9-11 and many more have since succumbed to 9-11 related illness.  What better way to recognize the heroes and heroines of the FDNY than with a contribution to the Widows and Child...

New York City, home to the New York and NASDAQ stock exchanges is, unarguably, the financial capital of the world. When the financial markets perform well and stock prices rise, it is referred to as a “bull market”. How fitting then that one of the better known landmarks of New York City’s financial district is the three and half ton bronze “Charging Bull” statue created by the Italian born sculptor, Arturo Di Modica, who worked out of a SOHO studio in the City.

This past weekend, January 3-5, New Yo...

On November 30th, New York City’s Randall’s Island came alive with over 2,000 athletes, representing 140 teams from across the United States and abroad, competing in the 61st Annual New York Sevens Rugby Tournament (NY7s). Hosted by NYC’s own New York Rugby Club, the NY7s is the nation’s oldest and largest single-day Rugby 7s tournament getting its start in 1958.

As has been the custom, this year’s event kicked off with a pre-tournament party at The Australian on New York City’s west 38th street and c...
