NFL Still Working to Appease Displaced Packers Fans

by

NEW YORK, N.Y. (WTAQ) - The National Football League is still trying to appease the 400 fans who bought tickets to the Super Bowl and never got seats.

A good number of Wisconsin Packer fans were among those shut out of a section of temporary seats that were not completed in time. They either had to stand high above the field, or watch the game on TV in a stadium lounge.

At first, the league offered to pay 3 times the face value of the $800 ticket to those who didn’t get alternative seats. Then on Monday, the league said the fans were allowed on the field for free food during the post-game celebration – and they were promised tickets to next year’s Super Bowl.

Tuesday, the NFL said it would also give fans another option of going to any future Super Bowl, with a free flight and hotel – and they can wait each year until they find out if their favorite team will make the Big Game.

League spokesman Greg Aiello said it wanted to offer a broader range of options to recognize the deep emotional bonds the fans have for their teams. But if they choose that option, they won’t get the $2,400 refund from Sunday.

The commissioner’s office plans to contact all those affected, and they’re still trying to find them all. Information on contacts can be e-mailed to the following address – SBXLV@NFL.Dot.Com
