What is going to happen when the Mets oversell tickets during Covid Restrictions?


As of now NYC/NYS is letting 10 percent occupancy of arenas and stadiums. I want to know what happens when Opening Day roles around and the Mets have to make the "cuts" to fans. If you paid for you seats already, whether in a plan or single tickets, how annoyed are you going to be when the Mets send you an email that you can't come to the game? I want to know how the Mets are going to make the decision of what fans can be in the stadium or not. What about if you have a group that you are bringing in? What about if you are with the7Line Army in CF?

The Mets have been pushing folks to buy ticket plans and group plans for this season. I have gotten four calls this off season from my "new point of contact" from the Mets. I have had four different new points of contact from these calls. I understand that this business and I am glad people at the stadium have jobs but come on.

Full disclosure. I still have my 7Line seats and I just rolled over the money I had as a credit from last season so it was basically only spent money anyway. But I am not going out of my way to get seats to any other games right now while there is no plan available to what the team is going to be allowed to do according to NYC/NYS covid protocols.

I guess there is probably going to be a lottery for folks to get into the stadium. Maybe by the time April rolls around the Mets will be able to have 35-50 percent capacity? I don't know if that will happen or not. I'm just guessing like you probably are too. Will the Mets offer you a refund at the end of the season? Will they just offer credits?  I guess we will find out.

Mets have ticket assurances on their Website. You will be offered a credit or a refund. This is in writing. On another forum a Mets plan holder wrote his rep told him only full season holders will be allowed in if it still 10 percent capacity. I have a 20 game plan but have heard nothing from the Mets. I have not asked my rep any questions about attending games either.
