There’s a way to get your money back if you were one of the people who went home disappointed from the canceled 2016 Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio.
The Hall of Fame is offering a full refund for tickets and reimbursement for other fees such as shipping and handling, pre-paid parking, pre-sale reservation and hotel fees for one night for eligible fans with proper verification and approval.
“The Hall of Fame game is our event. We sincerely regret disappointing fans but we believe that canceling the game was the right thing to do,” Pro Football Hall of Fame president David Baker said in a statement, according to NFL.com.
“Respect for players and their safety must always come first, especially by the Hall of Fame. We endeavored to handle, to the best of our ability, these difficult circumstances in the right way. Our focus was on the safety of the players and the best and safest way to communicate the decision to fans, teams, league and the media representatives.”
That’s not all, however. The Hall of Fame is also offering fans four admission tickets to the museum which can be redeemed at any time over the next five years; a commemorative photo of the Hall of Fame Class of 2016; a copy of the 2016 Hall of Fame Yearbook; the right to purchase tickets to one future Hall of Fame game or Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony over the next five years, before the general public; and a 30 percent discount for any purchase on the museum’s online store.
The 2016 Hall of Fame Game between the Green Bay Packers and Indianapolis Colts was canceled due to poor field conditions after a paint job caused the field surface to become hardened and unsafe for play.
