The Pensacola Ice Flyers have taken note of the decision of the SPHL and its Board of Governors to cancel the remainder of the 2019-20 regular season and President’s Cup Playoffs as of Sunday, March 15. The Ice Flyers organization supports this decision, which is focused on controlling the risk of spreading the coronavirus, while also taking precautions for everyone’s health. We take the health and safety of our fans, players, staff and arena employees very seriously.
We understand and fully respect that this will be a financial setback for some during this time. This will also be a financial setback for the team and league. No team or business is prepared for a total business stoppage and cancellation such as this within a week or less.
The Ice Flyers are fully committed and prepared to take care of all our fans for the games missed for which they paid to attend. To our fans, we would ask that you take into consideration the above information and work with us in taking alternative measures into the type of refund you have coming to you. This will significantly help minimize the damage and negative impact to our organization in the short-term and long-term. However, this is not a requirement. Please choose what works best for your individual situation, and we will honor any choice you make.
We ask for your patience in this process as we work through everything in a workload that is extremely large. We wish to thank our fans for their support and understanding.
Please see below for answers to some frequently asked questions regarding the cancellation of the season.

Click icefly.co/HalfOrFlexRefund and fill out the Refund Request Form. Once our office is back open to the public, you will need to bring your half season tickets or remaining vouchers to the Ice Flyers office, or mail them to us to have the quantity verified.

I also have a parking pass. What should I do?
Your parking pass refund will be added to your season ticket refund. There is an option in the Refund Request Form to select whether you had a season long parking pass or not.
How do I notify the Ice Flyers office of my desired refund option?
The online Refund Request Form is the only way. It will also greatly help our office track every refund in the same manner and speed up the process for everyone. Requests in person, over the phone, via email or any other mode of communication will not be an authorized refund request.
If I choose that I do not want to refund to help minimize the negative impact to the Ice Flyers organization, what should I do?
Please still fill out the refund request form by clicking icefly.co/Refund There will be an option in the online form to select no refund.
How and when will I receive my refund if I choose a full refund?
On the form, you will be required to put in your credit card information. We will process your refund on this credit card within 7 days. However, it may take longer to show up on your credit card and that will be based entirely on your card provider.
If I have been using a credit card for season ticket payment plans, can my refund not be processed on that?
For the ease and speed of the refund process for ALL season ticket holders, we will use the card you provide on the refund form. Therefore, please do not put Credit Card on File on the form. That form will not be an authorized refund request. Plus it would create even more work for the Ice Flyers staff on top of all the other work they have during this difficult time. Even putting Credit Card on File creates more work, so we kindly ask you to follow the steps to make everyone’s life a little easier.
