As it becomes more and more evident that the sports seasons are not going to actually happen, fans are starting to get upset how the sports clubs and their resellers such as Stub-Hub and Ticketmaster are delaying refunds to those who pre-purchased tickets to events.
almost seems like a fading memory at this point
It is estimated that the clubs and the ticket resellers have an combined "investment" of over a billion dollars of postponed events that is becoming more and more evident aren't actually ever going to happen. In some instances the clubs are not issuing refunds but instead are giving vouchers for next year's events.
At the moment there is a class action lawsuit against Major League Baseball, all 30 teams and their ticket resellers. The official stance of MLB is that the games are not cancelled but are rather "postponed" and therefore customers are not entitled to a refund as is defined in the "small print" that nobody ever reads.
There is some speculation that the leagues don't actually have the money anymore to give refunds with, and hence this is why the hesitation is occurring. Season ticket holders are in a similar situation with most fans finding that the clubs aren't even addressing the issue. In some instances, fans have actually been automatically charged for next year's season despite the fact that the one they already paid for has been cut short by the shutdown.
All sports leagues are being very tight-lipped on this and are refusing to respond to media inquiries about the situation and claim to be searching for alternatives such as MLB seeking to play the games in rural locations such as Arizona. In the meantime baseball is treating the games in a similar fashion to games being "rained out."
The fans are feeling betrayed and it remains to be seen if this has some lasting loyalty effect. For the time being, billions are being lost by all parties involved and at least as far as MLB is concerned, they intend to suspend players' pay after May 31st.
Personally, I feel that even once corona is in the past for us, the entertainment dollar is going to be one of the last ones to return unless dramatic price cuts are introduced when the country reopens. People will simply have other, more important financial aspects of their lives to focus on.
