Coronavirus: Saskatchewan Roughriders offer options for ticket holders

Ticket holders for the Saskatchewan Roughriders have been given options when it comes to their seats for the 2020 season, following the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Wednesday, Riders President and CEO Craig Reynolds said the team has begun to contact ticket holders, offering them choices, whether it’s deferred payments for those on payment plans, or even full refunds.

“We’ve presented a number of options to our ticket holders and included in those options would be a refund,” said Reynolds.

“There’s a number of options and we understand the impacts to our season ticket holders and we also understand the broader economic situation in the province.”

The Roughriders are one of those teams with an economic uncertainty as a result of the pandemic.. Gate admission makes up about 50 per cent of the team’s annual revenue, so if games get cancelled and people get refunded, it impacts the Rider’s bottom line.

And while it’s a tough situation for both the team and its fans, Reynolds says most have been understanding and patient so far through the process.
