minutes away from kickoff and some temporary seats are still not ready at Cowboys Stadium.
For now, fans that affected are being directed to the Party Plaza area outside the stadium until the issue is resolved.
If fans’ seats are not ready for game time, the NFL said that they will be refunded triple the face value of their ticket.
Here is the NFL’s statement in full:
“There are a limited number of sections in temporary seating areas in side the stadium that have not been fully completed. We are working to resolve the matter and expect that by game time most of the fans afected will have been accomodated in their seats or relocated to similar or better seats.
“Those fans that are affected by this will be directed to the Party Plaza area while the matter is resolved.
“Fans who are not accomodated with seats inside the stadium will each receive a refund of triple the cost of face value of their ticket.
“We regret the situation.”
After traveling many miles to be at an event that is the biggest in hype and television coverage can you imagine being offered a refund? Who would be satisfied with a refund of triple the cost of the face value of their ticket? How about refunding triple the airfare and hotel expenses? Or how about suing the NFL for breach of contract?
