Notes

NBA: League owners are expected to approve a 22-team return-to-play plan targeted for late July - which could include a mini play-in tournament for the eighth seed in each conference - with games being played at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando.

La Liga: Spain's national sports council confirmed that the 2019-20 season will restart June 11 with a derby match between local rivals Sevilla and Real Betis. Matches will be staged every day of the week in an effort to complete the campaign by July 19.

Serie A: The Italian government gave the green light for the nation's top soccer league to resume its season June 20. The semifinals of the domestic cup, the Coppa Italia, are expected to be played June 13 before the league season gets underway again.

Premier League: England's top soccer league will resume June 17, with Aston Villa vs. Sheffield United and Manchester City vs. Arsenal kick-starting the action. The season is then expected to get back into full swing with a complete slate of fixtures the weekend of June 20.

NHL: The league announced in late May that a 24-team playoff format has been agreed upon if the season resumes, with the postseason to be held in two yet-to-be-determined hub cities. There remains no firm timeline for a return to play, and resumption camps won't open until at least July 10, which means the Stanley Cup will be awarded at some point in the late summer or early fall.

Bundesliga: The Bundesliga returned May 16, and the season is on track to finish in late June. Games are being played under strict regulations with no fans in attendance.

UFC: The UFC was one of the first sports leagues to return, holding four events in May. UFC 250 is slated for June 6 in Las Vegas. UFC president Dana White hopes that "Fight Island" - which will host bouts between international athletes - will be operational at some point in June.

NASCAR: Racing resumed May 17 at Darlington Raceway in Darlington, South Carolina, with no fans in attendance. The track hosted two more events before action moved to Charlotte Motor Speedway for the rest of the month. Six Cup Series races are scheduled in June.

PGA Tour: The season will officially resume June 11 with the Charles Schwab Challenge. There will be no fans in attendance for at least the first four events on the revised schedule. The May 14-17 PGA Championship is rescheduled for Aug. 6-9. The June 18-21 U.S. Open has been moved to Sept. 17-20. The R&A officially canceled the 2020 Open Championship, making it the first event to be canceled rather than postponed. The Masters are slated for Nov. 9-12, and the Ryder Cup is currently set to proceed as scheduled at the end of September.

ATP, WTA Tennis: The main board of the All England Lawn Tennis Club canceled Wimbledon for the first time since 1945. The French Open is tentatively scheduled to run Sept. 20 through Oct. 4.

Euro 2020: Qualifying playoffs for the tournament (rescheduled for 2021) are postponed indefinitely.
