If it was going to be used, then look at low rank teams in the first pool matches. There certainly won't be any working pro's using it in the final.
If it kicks ass there will be.
Except compared to the 1Dx, it won't kick ass.
How do you know? For this application it might well.
But why? Pro sports photographers aren't focal length limited generally so what do they have to gain by using a crop body? The only advantage I could think of would be a potentially higher frame rate as the mirror and shutter is much smaller but even then 12fps is crazy quick, even 10 is a lot
Pretty much everyone at all three each of the D1, D2, and D3 NCAA track meets had a 1Dx and 400 f/2.8L I or II IS combo, plus a 2nd 1Dx with a 70-200 f/2.8L II IS lens. This was really dramatic compared to last year, when there was an even mix of 1Dx and 1D4 cameras, and Nikon cameras and lenses. Majority this year was 1Dx and a supertele. This may be a classic case of where people figure out very quickly that DxOmark scores mean absolutely nothing, they are ignored, and people get the gear that works best, especially pros.
