Cardinals season ticket holders await news

Posted

PHOENIX – On the heels of a report that the NFL Players Association is concerned about opening training camps in “hot spot cities,” season ticket holders for the Cardinals are awaiting news on their options for 2020.

The NFLPA is reportedly concerned about beginning practices in places that have been hit hard by the coronavirus. Arizona is one of those areas, and on Tuesday the Arizona Department of Health Services reported 4,273 new cases and 92 new deaths.

Many teams across the league have already announced plans or been in communication with their season ticket holders. The Cardinals did not respond to a request for the status of their plans.

The Seattle Seahawks emailed season ticket holders last Thursday, giving them the option to either request a refund on the 2020 season or keep the credit on their account for a 2021 season renewal, the Seattle Times reported.

The New York Giants and New England Patriots are also offering fans an option to skip the 2020 season while being able to retain their seats for 2021.

With a couple of different blueprints in place and the clock winding down on the start of training camp and eventually the regular season, the team is committed to “providing the safest possible environment for our players, staff and fans based on guidance from state and local authorities,” according to a statement it sent recently to season ticket holders.

“Based on the latest available information, the likelihood that we will be able to play all of our games in front of a full-capacity crowd is very low,” the statement said. “As such, we are developing contingency plans for the different scenarios and potential stadium seating configurations. When the overall situation comes into clearer focus and the details of the 2020 plan are solidified we will reach out with an update. We hope you have a safe and healthy summer and look forward to seeing you this fall at State Farm Stadium.”
