Yesterday, in regards to the NHL season being suspended due to the COVID-19 virus, the Devils put out a press release in regards to what fans should do if they have tickets to Devils events at Prudential Center in the coming month.
They said: “Until we have certainty and direction from the league, your tickets to the postponed games will remain valid for the future scheduled makeup dates, if they should be scheduled.”
The press release said that “further information on your options as a Devils ticket holder has been communicated via email to each ticket holder for all remaining events during the 2019-20 Devils regular season.”
They gave contact information if you have tickets to a game and need to know more. Contact them at email@example.com if you have any further questions.
In addition, I know that certain shows have rescheduled. The March 25 AEW Dynamite event is now scheduled for Wednesday, July 22, for instance.
On another note, Hockey Night in Canada’s Elliotte Friedman is reporting that Devils owners Josh Harris and David Blitzer are committing “to paying hourly/event staff for postponed [Devils] games and Prudential Center events.” He tweeted the news today.
That is fantastic news. In a situation like this, you worry about how the people working at the arena will fare with no events there. Harris and Blitzer really put what they were saying as quoted by Friedman (“Employees are family…it’s important to band together and lift each other up during these times.”) into action. Hopefully other NHL and arena owners are doing similar things as well. It does help in this situation that they own both the team and the building, but still a great move by them no matter what.
