The Coronavirus continues to spread across the United States, and to have an increased impact on Americans’ everyday life. The sports world is of course no exception as events all over the country have either been postponed or canceled altogether due to the pandemic. Pro football has not been hit as hard so far, but adjustments still had to be made by the NFL and its 32 franchises — the New England Patriots among those being forced to adapt.
The organization has already taken precautions by restricting travel during pro day season and advising personnel to work from home if possible. Now, the Patriots have also adapted their season ticket payment deadline due to concerns about Covid-19 and the impact it may have on fans’ ability to purchase tickets: the deadline for the annual member invoices was pushed back by the club to June 30 after originally being set for March 31.
“We thank you for your continued support of the New England Patriots and we look forward to the time when we can welcome you back to Gillette Stadium to cheer on our team — together. Our thoughts and well wishes are with you in the days to come,” reads a letter the club recently sent to its season ticket members notifying them of the change. The decision was made to “help ease some concerns during these uncertain times.”
