5% "Loyalty" credit
for letting the team keep your money. Same as the above except its only 5% and you get a check when the season starts for that credit amount
a full refund
for all games not rescheduled so the team cannot keep your money.
Just a few things I noticed:
Taking option 3 and if we lose a whole season, it says they will give you the option to renew for the following season at "market price" which is obviously going to be higher than what many of us paid.
Also it says that the credit can only be applied towards playoff tickets and tickets for the following yr. Not applicable towards food, beverage, retail, parking, etc.
You have to pick one option by October 1st which seems stupid since we already know the lockout will go beyond that and the first home game for the Panthers isnt until Oct 13th. If people are interested in reading more, they have a page setup on their website for info and making a selection:
I wonder if they will provide an option for an outright refund of all tickets. My wife was less than happy about the possibility of missing out part of the season. I am all for supporting the team, but both players and owners need to understand that there are consequences to their actions.
