Major League Baseball this week revised its policy and provided teams the authority to begin issuing refunds to fans who purchased tickets for 2020 regular season games.
The Los Angeles Dodgers laid out their plan and available options in an email to season ticket holders, as well as on an FAQ page.
At present time, the Dodgers will be providing ticketholders with an account credit for the amount paid for tickets to games scheduled at Dodger Stadium in March and April. In addition to that, the team is providing a 10% bonus to each account, which can be applied to the purchase of tickets or prepaid parking during the 2020 or 2021 seasons.
Additional options for credit usage are available to season ticket members on food/beverage, merchandise purchases, or donating to the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation’s coronavirus (COVID-19) relief efforts.
Meanwhile, fans who wish to request a refund of their original purchase of tickets for home games through April, are asked to contact their account representative by calling 866-DODGERS and selecting option 6.
The Dodgers intend to provide more information for games later in the season once the outlook becomes more clear.
Last month two fans filed a lawsuit against MLB, their ticket sponsor and all 30 teams, as they sought ticket refunds. It was recently amended to include additional named class representatives who purchased tickets from the Dodgers, San Francisco Giants and Oakland Athletics.
As part of their refund announcement, the Dodgers reiterated the Top of the Park store at Dodger Stadium remains closed in the interest of public safety, and stadium tours have been halted.
The team also noted there has not been a change to the 2020 MLB All-Star Game. There has been some speculation this year’s Midsummer Classic could be cancelled and return to Dodger Stadium in 2022, or used as the starting off point for the regular season.
However, given current limitations on mass gatherings and comments California Gov. Gavin Newsom and L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti, it wouldn’t appear likely fans would be permitted to attend if MLB moved forward with the All-Star Game at Dodger Stadium.
