MLS Fire Owner Offers Free Tickets To Fans Who Missed Messi At Exhibition Match
Published July 12, 2013
PROMOTER TO REFUND TICKET COSTS: The AP reported fans who paid $2,500 for tickets to the Messi game "will be eligible for refunds after the star soccer player failed to show for a promised meet-and-greet after the game. Miami-based promoter Numero 5 Producciones said that Messi's early departure from the game "wasn't Messi's fault, blaming Soldier Field security personnel." But the company Thursday in a statement said that it will "reach out to any VIP package holders who didn't meet Messi 'in order to begin the process for making an appropriate refund'" (AP, 7/11).
