UNITED STATES—Two sports fans filed lawsuits on Monday, April 20 against MLB, each individual club, and ticket resellers for not refunding tickets they purchased for games which have been up in the air due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
One fan purchased a partial season plan and spent $317 as part of a payment plan, while another fan paid just under $1,000 via Ticketmaster for six tickets to a RedSox/Yankees game. Both fans are encouraging other fans to join the class-action lawsuit.
COVID-19 has led to the cancellation of events for scheduled sports, amongst many things. Major League Baseball, its teams, and ticket resellers labeled games that have not occurred as postponements rather than cancellations, teams being able to keep the payments already made for such games. So far, there is no word on when and if MLB games will take place in 2020.
