(ESPN) – The University of Florida is open to hosting events involving professional sports teams looking for a way to play during the coronavirus pandemic, athletic director Scott Stricklin said in a statement Thursday.

After Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said Wednesday that all professional sports teams are welcome in the state for practicing and playing, Stricklin reached out to discuss the facilities in Gainesville, Florida.

“I’ve already spoken with some of our colleges, like the University of Florida,” DeSantis said in an appearance on Fox News on Thursday.

“They got a great football stadium, the Swamp, that’s not used on Sundays. So if an NFL team needs a place to land, we could work that out too.”
