Saints alter season ticket refund policy amid scrutiny

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The New Orleans Saints have adopted a new refund policy allowing fans to relinquish their season tickets and get their money back. The Saints intend to fill the 73,000-seat Superdome for home games this season. But they also are following local and state protocols restricting admittance to fans who wear masks and show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test. The policy change came as the state Bond Commission voted Thursday to delay financing for Superdome improvements. Republican Senate President Page Cortez says he wants to make sure the Saints are giving ticketholders enough time to seek refunds.
