Hall of Fame refunding ticket, hotel costs for canceled game


CANTON, Ohio (AP) — The Pro Football Hall of Fame is offering refunds to fans who bought tickets to its canceled preseason game this month.

The hall announced Thursday that it will reimburse fans for the face value of their tickets, fees and one-night hotel accommodations.

It was forced to cancel the Aug. 7 game between Green Bay and Indianapolis after paint congealed and hardened on parts of the field at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton.

At least four fans sued the NFL in federal court in northern Ohio over the canceled game.

An attorney who brought the lawsuit says the hall’s initial plan to only refund ticket prices was too little.

The hall of fame says it also will offer affected fans four tickets to its museum.
