Eagles join NFL teams to defer season-ticket payments

The Philadelphia Eagles are the latest NFL team to defer season-ticket payments as the country deals with the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

Eagles season-ticket holders were notified by letter Tuesday that the next installment for 2020 tickets, originally scheduled for April 16, had been postponed to a later, undetermined date.

"As an organization, we want you to know that we are here for you and we want to be supportive of you during this difficult time," it read.

A number of teams have taken similar action, including the New York Giants, Miami Dolphins, Los Angeles Rams, Washington Redskins, New England Patriots, Green Bay Packers, Baltimore Ravens, New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals.

The new date for payments range from May to September, with some teams, like the Jets and Eagles, keeping it open-ended for now.

The Packers and Rams included information on the policy for canceled games.

"While the Packers expect to play a full schedule in 2020, ticket holders are reminded of the policy on canceled games. If a game is canceled and cannot be rescheduled, or is played under conditions that prohibit fans from attending (for example, if a public authority restricts gatherings to no more than a small number of people), season-ticket holders will receive a refund for the impacted game(s), or the option to credit that amount to future playoff or regular-season tickets for the 2021 season," their statement read.

The NFL's annual meeting, scheduled for March 29-April 1 in Palm Beach, Florida, was canceled due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus. The 2020 draft is still scheduled for April 23-25, but public draft events in Las Vegas will not take place.
