Giants won't require season ticket payment til after lockout
The New York Giants will not require season ticket holders to pay their invoice until the NFL lockout has been resolved.
They are reportedly the only team in the league taking this approach. According to Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger, the Giants typically require season tickets to be paid for in full by May 1. That is the date they are requiring a full payment by again this year. However, fans who want to hold their money until the work stoppage and labor mess have been resolved can do so. They must, however, provide a credit card number that the team can charge for the seats when the lockout is resolved.
That’s a plus, too, because some teams do not accept payment in the form of credit cards as they don’t want to pay the fee. During an appearance on WFAN on Wednesday, owner John Mara explained that a letter to season ticket holders will be mailed next week along with invoices. All of the policies will be spelled out.
The Giants are taking the right approach here. It will be wonderful when the news isn’t headlined by decisions made during a work stoppage.
