UND vs. Penn St. Nashville 2020-21

Recommended Posts

Okay so thoughts... As much I hate to say it, let's just imagine the game does not happen this year. We don't host the HOF game again until 2022. I'd imagine they'd go rig back to Nashville. Do they cancel all tickets and refund them? Or do they tell us to hold our tickets for two years and everyone who already has tickets keeps them?

Ticketmast got into huge trouble for not allowing refunds for canceled events during COVID. They will give the money back

On a related note, if game revenues aren't received, is UND still contractually on the hook for payments to US hockey hall of fame?

Seems like Ticketmaster is punting.  If it’s postponed you can still use the ticket or get a Ticketmaster credit.

Maybe different with sporting events, but with most of the big concerts that have been affected, cancelled = immediate refund and postponed = your choice of keeping ticket for the rescheduled event or getting refund.  However with the postponement it can get tricky.  You only have 30 days from the day the new date is announced to declare your refund.  If no new date is immediately announced then the 30 day window starts 60 days after the initial postponement is announced.  Would UND "postpone" the event until 2022 leaving alot of people's money in limbo for 2 years?

Tennessee Governor has extended state of emergency until August 29th and face masks are now required when in public in Nashville. 

Phase 3 has also been delayed due to a sharp rise in hospitalizations

I saw an article the other day that stated there was probably 25% chance then for this game to happen, and that it is possible that UND pursue next year HOF game if it looks like it would be able to occur to have this game. They said it is not out of the ordinary for UND to fork over money as they did last year to buy it from Xcel Energy Center for $100,000. 

 

Possibly move this game to 2021, and if 2020 can have fans in college hockey move this year to Sioux Falls? They have the logistics from the regional, and the Sioux Falls market did not get to see UND play that year. Tickets would have to be refunded and sold as a new event, but atleast its a new facility for UND to play in that will draw fans and the Premier Center is already scheduling events with fans this year again.

I am sorry but Sioux Falls is not a destination venue. Just my opinion.

I get where you are coming from and I would think they may find a leas attractive opponent to save PSU for Nashville just a Idea. Most likely it would just move back to the Ralph but also depends on if fans are allowed. Just know Sioux Falls have stayed more open and just a option. I was bummed that UND did not make the regional and would love to see them play in Sioux Falls. 

 

Be more of a neutral site game within driving distance and not a destination game.

Thanks, I really like your reply. I think Sioux Falls would make a good regional but just not a destination, again in my opinion. I want to go somewhere I can escape the Dakotas during that time but I am also aware of the fact that it is pretty slim pickens right now..

I thought I remember seeing there was an NCAA scheduling portal for teams that had series dropped this season.  Maybe UND can pick up a one-off game with someone and save Penn State for Smashville next year.
