Is the A1 Designed for Photojournalists/Sports Photographers?

Assuming that the A1 is the replacement for the A9II and is designed with sports photographers in mind, does a 50MP camera make sense for this group who prefer 1/2 the MP or less?

Unless I'm missing something it means that they will need to shoot in APS-C mode to keep file sizes down.  This shouldn't be a problem for longer lenses--that 400mm 2.8 becomes a 600mm lens--, but what about at the wide end? The workhorse 24-70, not with the reach of a 36-105, is perhaps a touch long at the wide end. Maybe given the benefits of the new body, this is a minor problem.  Anyway, what do professionals think?
