Limitations for COVID-19
The president of the Professional Baseball League of the Dominican Republic, Vitelio Mejía said a few weeks ago that he anticipated that for the month of October, he expected that the different stadiums of the country could receive around 60 percent of the established capacity, as measured related to the pandemic.
However, the Licey makes a clarification to its fans that they intend to purchase season tickets.
“The fertilizers will be subject to the provisions established by the authorities in this regard. In the event that by any provision of the authorities you are prevented from using your seats, you will have the power to request a full refund of the amount paid if said impediment is before the start of the season. If the season starts, the amount equivalent to the remaining matches will be reimbursed, ”they said in the statement to subscribers.
And they added: “In case the capacity of the seating areas is restricted by the authorities, their seats could be located elsewhere.”
Subscription reservation is until August
For subscribers of previous seasons there is an established date for the reservation of seats, stipulated in the message that reached this group of fans.
“Subscription reservations will only be kept until August 31, after that date we do not guarantee the availability of your seats.”
