Ticket package

Here’s what Michigan is doing for 2020:

As Andy Staples explains, they’re saying that whatever season ticket situation you had planned on for 2020 will just get carried over for 2021.”  Given how up in the air everything is, that seems like a fairly practical approach.  What do you think?

    Demand for a socially distanced game setting will be an interesting thing to watch.

    Will fewer tickets trigger high demand or will covid and a less frenzied atmosphere lead to a lack of interest?

    It would be nice to go to Bryant Denny and not have to deal with that horrific post game traffic situation, assuming it happens at all.

    I guess that means no refunds of 2020 season ticket orders.
    What if a person who paid for 2020 season tickets died before 2021? Will his/her estate get a refund or does Michigan deliver the 2021 tickets to the executor for distribution as provided in a will?

      The refund concept isn’t addressed. Retention of seat location is a concept independent of refund. They will refund the ticket. The great mystery is the contribution

    Greg was quoted as saying a refund would be offered if the season is canceled or no fans. Also rolling into 2021 will be incentivized. The tricky part is a partially full stadium- who gets the seats?

    This works for me. Partial refunds of tickets or donations would be messy.

    I’m curious whether you have first access to your seats if there is a sale to existing ticket holders. I’d also be curious how folks can change location if someone declines a purchase.

      I suspect if someone rolls 2020 payments to 2021 they keep their seats and if 2020 games have fans those seats will be a one season only deal.

  5. Why don’t they just fill the stadium with thousands of webcams — one in each seat — and allow full capacity, but spectators watch from home?

    Both the Michigan schools have shown they have given some thought to the problem. If only other schools would follow suit.

    My general opinion around covid related refunds/postponement/cancelations is that the money should just be refunded and then start whatever they come up with as a new thing.

    UGA should just send back the ticket money, and thank you for your donation.

    This seems like a sensible approach. I don’t plan to attend any games but would retain my tickets in the worst case scenario (that is, UGA decides to have games with fans and no refund/pay it forward) and just eat the money. If I keep my priority and my seats AND get back my ticket costs for 2020, I’ll be more than happy.

    I would like to credit my season ticket purchase toward bourbon. This fall, I drink alone.

    Houston Astros are giving fans the chance to buy a cardboard cutout for their seat for a $100 donation to their charity. I could see McG implementing something similar. 😉

    If they are going to have limited spectators, it should only be students. they are all already on campus. You can spread them out all across the stadium. you should even be able to maintain social distancing in bathrooms / concourses.

    Hmm.

    I dunno.

    A vaccine could be ten years away.

    Seems too optimistic. They should return the season ticket holder money. We may be dealing with this super bad-ass pandemic level killer virus forever and it appears each time it mutates it gets more deadly and spreads more easily.

    Plus, herd immunity will never work and the antibodies don’t last.

    I think they are selling false hope.

    Personally, I’ve given up hope on not just seeing UGA win another title, but ever playing football ever again.

    The virus is just too deadly and we are defeated.

    I’m most likely going to opt for a full refund of my seat license fees and ticket prices. I doubt they’re going to offer up any kind of incentive worthy of letting them roll my money forward to 2021.

    And it would be nice if they would actually start communicating with their customers about this instead of continuing to ignore it.
