Ticket Terms and Conditions
Lansdowne Stadium Limited Partnership (the “Licensor“) hereby offers the Licensee (as defined below) the non-renewable, revocable license (the “License“) to purchase, have and use the admission tickets (the “Tickets“) to those home games or events of the Licensor held at the stadium located at 1015 Bank Street, Ottawa (“TD Place“) as are specified on a Seat Agreement or in any other Ticket purchase confirmation, documentation or communication issued by the Licensor to the Licensee (each, a “Seat Agreement“), as applicable. The License must be read in conjunction with any Seat Agreement and is offered by the Licensor to the Licensee subject to the terms and conditions set forth below, the terms and conditions contained on the back of the Tickets issued to the Licensee and those included in any Seat Agreement, Seat Agreement Addendum or other material describing any package of Tickets purchased by the Licensee, as well as those additional specific conditions communicated by the Licensor to the Licensee from time to time (collectively, the “Terms“). The act of submitting a completed Seat Agreement form or making full or partial payment to the Licensor, whichever is sooner and whether effected by the Licensee directly or on the Licensee’s behalf, will constitute Licensee’s acceptance of the License and all of the Terms.
By accepting the License, the Licensee acknowledges and agrees that it has no (i) right or privilege to renew the License and none will be implied, nor (ii) reasonable expectation, right or privilege to any Tickets to any event not specified on a Seat Agreement. The purchase and use of other game or event Tickets (including Tickets to Playoff Games, as defined below) will be subject to the terms and conditions as set forth, from time to time, by the Canadian Football League (“CFL“), the North American Soccer League (“NASL”), the Ontario Hockey League (“OHL”) the Licensor or the organizer/promoter of the event, as applicable. Any opportunity granted by the Licensor to renew the License or purchase Tickets to any event not specified on a Seat Agreement is a privilege revocable, at any time, in the Licensor’s sole discretion.
For the purposes of the License, the “Licensee” is the adult individual or legal business entity identified on the Seat Agreement (the “Ticket Account“) registered in accordance with Section 4, below. Each Ticket covered by the License represents a separate non-renewable, revocable license which only permits the bearer the right to: (a) enter the publicly-accessible areas of the TD Place at times determined by the Licensor; (b) attend the event identified on the Ticket; and (c) sit in the seat location identified on the Ticket. The License, the Ticket Account and the Tickets are all revocable at the sole discretion of the Licensor, with or without cause, including, but not limited to, failure to pay. Event time and date, opponent and team rosters, including the Ottawa REDBLACKS, and Ottawa Fury FC and Ottawa 67’s team rosters, are subject to change without notice to Licensee.
The Ticket Account may only be registered in the name of one adult individual or legal business entity, which will be identified as the Licensee in the Licensor’s Ticket Account database. In the event that the Ticket Account is registered in the name of a legal business entity, a “contact person” must be identified for the limited purpose of correspondence and contact. The License, the Ticket Account, and/or any privileges the Licensee may have hereunder, may not be assigned, sublet or transferred in any manner, whether voluntarily or by gift, bequest, or operation of law, by the Licensee to any other person or entity without the express written consent of the Licensor. Only the Licensee can request that a Ticket Account be assigned or transferred. For greater certainty, (i) payment for the Ticket Account by anyone other than the Licensee, and receipt thereof by the Licensor, does not constitute or effectuate an assignment, sublet or transfer of the License, and (ii) subject to Section 6, below, the Licensee may give to a third party any of the Tickets provided hereunder and this will not constitute an assignment, sublet or transfer of the License.
All sales are final. The Licensee agrees to pay all amounts specified on a Seat Agreement in accordance with the payment option selected, including but not limited to, doing so by the applicable due date(s) as are stipulated. Unpaid amounts after any due date will be subject to a late payment charge of the greater of two percent (2%) per month until paid, calculated and compounded monthly, or the maximum allowable by law.
The Licensee is absolutely responsible for any violation of the License, including the Terms, whether committed by the Licensee or any person in possession of any Ticket(s) issued to the Licensee (“Ticketholder”). The Licensee should safeguard all Tickets so that the License is not violated. Unless otherwise authorized by the Licensor, any direct or indirect sale, resale, auction, assignment, or transfer of any Ticket at a price greater than the price printed on the front, as well as any attempt at any of the foregoing, is strictly prohibited and a violation of the License. Furthermore, any resale of any Ticket(s) in violation of any federal, provincial or local law, ordinance, rule or regulation violates the License and may result in revocation of the License. No Ticket(s) may be used for advertising, promotion (including contests, giveaways and sweepstakes) or any other trade or commercial purposes without the prior written consent of the Licensor. Any violation of the License by the Licensee or the Ticketholder, including the Terms, will give the Licensor the unrestricted right to revoke or terminate the License, seize any Tickets and/or cancel the Ticket Account immediately without having to refund the face value of the Ticket(s) and without affecting the Licensee’s payment obligations to the Licensor. The Licensor reserves the right to investigate violations of the License and/or the Terms. The failure of the Licensee or any Ticketholder to cooperate with any investigation constitutes a violation of the License. The Licensee acknowledges that damages may not be an adequate remedy for breach of the Terms and consents to injunctive or other relief which may be sought to enforce same.
Recordings, photos, portrayals (“Photos”) of the crowd made or taken during the game, which may include the Ticketholder, may be used by the Licensor, the Ottawa REDBLACKS Football Club, or the Ottawa Fury FC or the Ottawa 67’s Hockey Club for commercial purposes without compensation to the Ticketholder. Ticketholder hereby waives, any rights Ticketholder may otherwise have in their likeness or in its use in any Photos. Ticketholder has no reasonable expectation of privacy or anonymity.
