NFL sets policy for ticket refunds if games are canceled by work stoppage

By Cindy Boren

The NFL has announced a ticket-refund policy for all general-admission seats for preseason and regular-season games canceled by a work stoppage next season.

The policy, announced by the league today, will not include Personal Seat Licenses or club seats and luxury suites. Each team will decide its policy on PSLs, club seats and luxury suites. The announcement comes now because season-ticket renewals will be mailed soon.

"We are working hard to secure an agreement with the union that is fair and forward-thinking to ensure our game is sound and strong well into the future," Commissioner Roger Goodell in a statement. "We know we will reach an agreement at some point. We all want football without interruption, but our fans are entitled to know now that they would receive refunds if any games are canceled."

The NFL says that fans will be compensated (in the form in which they paid -- check or credit card -- or with a credit toward future ticket purchases) within 30 days after it is determined how many games will be played.

All of this begs the question -- does the policy apply to current season games as well?

I suspect we’ll see clear evidence of a “work stoppage” in the weeks ahead -– as certain members of the Redskins start “mailing it in” for the meaningless games that will follow this weekend’s loss in NYC.
