Two months, two weeks, two days. 75 days. That’s how long Boston Breakers season ticket holders have been waiting for their refunds. Most of them were out at least several hundred dollars; some, thousands.
75 days, and Breakers season ticket holders are now finally seeing movement on getting their money back. The National Women’s Soccer League announced today that they will be sending refunds to STHs and registered camp participants. Via their press release, refunds will be overseen by Garden City Group, LLC, a company whose website says they deal with “class action administrations, restructuring proceedings, regulatory matters, mass tort litigation, legal notice programs, data breach prevention and response, and business process outsourcing worldwide.”
A separate e-mail sent out by NWSL managing director Amanda Duffy said that STHs and camp registrants would receive an email from GCG on how to request their refund. While Duffy thanked fans for their patience during the process, no further information was provided about the reason for the delay. Be aware that some fans reported the GCG email went to their spam folder.
Fans can go to GCG’s refund site for more information. According to the refunds section of the page, fans will have until July 10, 2018 to request a refund. The FAQ section states, “Although you did not pay any season ticket amounts to NWSL, NWSL is nonetheless administering this process as a courtesy to our valuable fans.” Meaning STH money went to the Breakers, but now NWSL has stepped in and is taking care of the refund process.
TBM has requested further comment from NWSL on the reason for the delay and will update if they respond.
