Back in May, we shared the news that the National Hockey League’s Atlanta Thrashers were still taking orders for season tickets right up until the announcement came that the team would be sold and move to Winnipeg. Disorganized and anti-consumer, sure, but as long as people who put down season ticket deposits for next season get their money back, everything would be okay. Yeah… about that. Fans who had already put down deposits for their season tickets are now getting a runaround, and the team owes each anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars.
Great news, hockey fans! Earlier today, you could still buy season tickets to watch the Atlanta Thrashers play during the 2011-12 NHL season. Even the best seats in the house are going to be pretty terrible, though, because the team announced this morning that it has been sold and is moving. To Winnipeg. Manitoba. Canada. Yet you could apparently still buy season tickets right up until the press conference.
