DUCKS, SHARKS, KINGS PRE-EMPT LEAGUE ON REFUND POLICIES
Published October 20, 1994
Officials for the NHL's three CA teams announced their ticket-refund policies in advance of the league's official statement on game cancellations. ANAHEIM: Mighty Ducks officials announced that tickets for single games postponed will be honored on the rescheduled game date or refunded at the ticket holder's request. Tickets purchased for single games that are canceled will be refunded. The club has asked that fans who wish to obtain refunds wait until the day after the scheduled game. Season-ticket or mini- plan holders may opt for a credit to be used towards the purchase of '95 playoff tickets, or next year's season tickets or mini- plans. Ticket holders who elect the credit option will also receive a discount on the purchase price of playoff tickets. Season ticket or mini-plan holders who do not elect the credit option may request a refund which will be issued monthly as games are canceled or rescheduled (Mighty Ducks). SAN JOSE: The Sharks were among three NHL teams to offer interest payments to season-ticket and partial season-ticket holders as part of a new refund plan. Ticket holders have three options: 1) Bypass refunds for canceled games, but collect 6% interest on the season-ticket account balance until the season resumes or is canceled, retroactive to October 1. The interest can go toward playoff games, '95-96 season tickets, or be withdrawn once a decision to start or cancel the season is made. 2) Accept refunds for canceled games and earn 3.5% on the remaining account balance. 3) Accept refund for full ticket package, but lose priority position for season tickets. The Kings announced similar plans (Darren Sabedra, SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 10/20).
