That’s a ton of money, my friends. It’s crazy to think somebody had the foresight 17 years ago to start paying pandemic insurance.
It’s a good thing they did too because Wimbledon now has $141 million coming its way, despite the fact not a single tennis match will be played.
Yet, if you’re going to get canceled, you might as well get a bunch of money along the way. That’s exactly what the people in charge of Wimbledon did.
The person responsible for getting this policy 17 years ago deserves a huge raise!
