PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Several thousand fans of the now shut down Pittsburgh Power Arena Football League team reached out to KDKA-TV’s Get Marty for help.
The large group of fans upset because they paid for season tickets and did not receive refunds when the team shut down in November.
“The team wouldn’t respond to anything. We’ve all tried,” says season ticket holder Brian Rizzo.
He has eight season tickets. Rizzo was owed nearly $2,000 by the team.
KDKA’S Marty Griffin immediately reached out to Power owner Matter Shaner. KDKA then contacted the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office.
In a statement to KDKA, the Attorney General’s Office said, “Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention. You are driving the train on this matter. Our office stands ready to intervene in the refund process.”
“They’re starting to make refunds, right now,” says Jesse Harvey with the Attorney General’s Office.
KDKA-TV has confirmed, a significant number of Power fans have received full refunds from the Power since we started our investigation.
“You’re an animal. You’re a beast,” says Power fan Ken Wenzel who reached out to Get Marty first.
Meanwhile, if there are other fans trying to get a refund, it’s recommended you file an online complaint with the Attorney General’s Office and you reach out to the Power.
We are told they have several employees handling refund.
No one with the team has agreed to comment to KDKA about the refunds.
