Tampa Bay Buccaneers will reimburse fans for London game

There's some uncertainty surrounding the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' scheduled October 23 game against the Chicago Bears in London. As we told you last night, the game will be rescheduled for Tampa if there isn't an end to the NFL's labor standoff by Aug. 1.

But there's one thing the Bucs have made clear: If you've already paid for season tickets, as many of you have, you'll get your money back for this lost home game. And the team says you won't have to wait for a final resolution on the labor front before your money is refunded. Refunds will be going out soon, the team confirmed.

So, here's what you should expect:

If you paid your account via cash or check, you'll be given your refund via check. If you paid by credit card, your card will be credited the prorated amount for the single game. For those on ongoing payment plans, your future payments will be adjusted to reflect the remaining balance minus the Bears game.

The Bucs are still losing a home game, and that won't go over well with a great many fans. But, if you're due a refund, it appears you won't have to wait long to receive it.
