Because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that has affected millions of lives and killed thousands of people around the world, the United States’ major professional sports circuits and leagues had to suspend their operations indefinitely, including MLB. That creates a domino effect in which every team, including the New York Mets, is affected somehow, from employees, players, staffers, front office, management, and even the merchandise vendor that went to the stadium night after night to try and make a living.

Among those affected by the situation are fans, including those who purchased tickets in advance. The Mets published an update on the 2020 season and ticketing in their website. Here are some of the highlights:

“We recognize that our fans have questions. However, given the unprecedented nature and fluidity of what is taking place, we appreciate your patience as we work through the many aspects and details of this continually evolving situation.”



“When updated official information becomes available, the Mets will communicate it to their fans promptly and through a variety of channels, including our website at mets.com and mets.com/2020updates.”

“We thank you for your understanding as we collectively navigate through this challenging time, and we wish good health and safety to all the members of our extended Mets Family.”
