The Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world:


The Buffalo Sabres are welcoming a limited number of fans to attend four games next month.

Tickets will go on sale Monday for Buffalo’s games against the New York Rangers on April 3, Washington on April 9, Pittsburgh on April 17 and Boston on April 23.

Fans will be allowed in if they have proof of being fully vaccinated 14 days before the game, or proof of a negative PCR COVID-19 test within three days of the game. The Sabres added another option of proof of a negative antigen COVID-19 test within six hours of the doors opening.

PCR tests cost $64 and antigen tests are $30.

The Sabres had fans in attendance only once this season. They honored front-line health care workers last week. The team was scheduled to have paying fans attend a game against Boston two days later, but the outing was postponed after the Bruins had five players enter the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol.
