2020 Season Shelved
Brooklyn, NY - In accordance with the news from Major League Baseball (MLB) and the New York-Penn League (NYPL), the 2020 Championship season will not be played across Minor League Baseball for the first time since its founding in 1901, which officially cancels the 2020 Brooklyn Cyclones season.
"Like all of our fans, we were looking forward to the 2020 season and celebrating our 2019 NYPL championship, but completely support the decision to cancel to the 2020 season given the public health concerns around playing games in 2020." " said Cyclones Vice President Steve Cohen "We love bobbleheads and t-shirt tosses, and hot dogs always taste better at the ballpark, but right now our focus needs to be the health and safety of our fans, players and staff. We look forward to moving forward and working towards a safe, and healthy, 2021 season of Brooklyn Cyclones baseball. "
To that end, the Brooklyn Cyclones have also announced official policies on tickets purchased for the 2020 season. All tickets bought through the Cyclones ticket office will be eligible for a credit/exchange for tickets to the 2021 season or a refund. Refunds will be processed beginning Monday July 6th and will be processed weekly through August 17, 2020. Refund requests will be accepted through August 17th. After that date the team will assume fans want to renew or exchange tickets for the 2021 season. Tickets purchased through third party vendors will not be eligible for refunds from the Brooklyn Cyclones but rather through the original third-party vendor. Those tickets will, however, be eligible for exchange for one year from the date of the game purchased. For FAQ please visit BrooklynCyclones.com/COVID
