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.

  1. Gators rally past Kentucky, streak hits 31


    LEXINGTON, Ky. — For the second week in a row, Florida found itself storming the field in a game that came down to the last second. A 57-yard field-goal attempt by Kentucky kicker Austin MacGinnis came just a few feet short of making history and snapping a 30-year losing streak, as the No. 20 Gators escaped a …

  2. Pen makes it way too interesting as Rays hang on for 9-6 win


    A couple of home runs provided the news pegs of the night for the Rays, but it was more topical to talk about what nearly happened as they hung on for a 9-6 win over the Orioles.

    Lucas Duda's three-run homer in the third inning was the Rays' record-breaking 217th of the season, as well as his …

  3. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Saturday's Rays-Orioles game

    RHP Jake Odorizzi admitted he probably should have gone on the DL sooner than late July for the back stiffness that was keeping him from throwing the ball where he wanted to. He has since found an impressive groove, with another strong outing Saturday.

  4. Matt Baker's takeaways from Florida State-N.C. State


    RB Cam Akers still looks like a former high school quarterback at times. His first two touches (30 yards) were special, but the freshman juked instead of powering ahead on his third (an unsuccessful third-and-1 rush). That's why the Seminoles are easing him in, as they did with Dalvin Cook three years ago.

  5. An attempt to project what Rays will look like in 2018

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — We know what the Rays look like this year: a team that had enough talent but too many flaws, in construction and performance, and in the next few days will be officially eliminated from a wild-card race it had a chance to win but let slip away.

    Adeiny Hechavarria, high-fiving Lucas Duda, seems likely to be brought back.
