Precourt relents, allowing window for Columbus fans to request refunds on 2018 season tickets

Less than a week after the club insisted it would not issue refunds to those fans who paid money toward 2018 season tickets and were upset about its possible move to Austin in 2019, Columbus Crew SC owner Anthony Precourt announced fans have until Nov. 3 to seek a refund.

It became an issue because the Crew's policy for season tickets required that fans opt out before Sept. 18 if they did not want them renewed. That was almost a month before Precourt announced that he was considering a move to Austin.

Not everyone agreed that staying away from Mapfre Stadium next season is the way to the Crew in Columbus.



Precourt's statement:

“I understand that the recent announcement on October 17th and subsequent media coverage surrounding the Club have created a difficult period for those who have passionately supported Crew SC. I also understand that the uncertainty surrounding the future of the Club is of concern to our loyal Season Ticket Members who have pledged support for the Club year-in and year-out. No final decisions have been made about the future of this Club and Crew SC will play at MAPFRE Stadium in 2018.

“I remain hopeful that our passionate supporters will cheer for the Club under these difficult circumstances, but I recognize that some of you would like the opportunity to secure a refund for 2018 MLS regular-season season packages purchased prior to PSV’s recent announcement. Effective today at 2:00 p.m. ET and up until 5:00 p.m. ET on Friday November 3, we will provide 2018 Season Ticket Members with a window to secure a full refund for 2018 Season Ticket Memberships should that be your preference. 2018 Season Ticket Members who previously purchased season tickets for the 2018 season and wish to secure a refund shall be eligible for a full refund prior to the November 3 deadline by following the link in the email that was sent today to Season Ticket Members. Playoff tickets committed for the 2017 MLS Playoffs will not be eligible for a refund. Our players and coaching staff leave everything on the field, match after match, and they are performing at an incredible level as we enter the playoffs. Although I know you are upset with the recent announcement, I hope you will still consider honoring our players with your support during this playoff run and beyond.”
