Everyone reads each specific line of written refund policies hidden on in tiny font on the back of every ticket they purchase, right? That, and the 25 pages of iTunes policy agreements to update your phone, I'm sure.


Well, if you're someone who had a ticket to the Monday Night Football game between the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs in Mexico City and you aren't someone that takes this absurdly meticulous approach when you purchased that ticket, then you're in for a rude awakening this Wednesday morning, courtesy of the NFL. 


After the league announced its Week 11 game between the Rams and Chiefs would be moving from Azteca Stadium in Mexico City to LA due to atrocious field conditions, fans will not be receiving a refund due to one cleverly-worded caveat. 

The NFL will not be doling out refunds to the thousands of people who have already purchased tickets to one of the most highly-anticipated MNF games in history because the game isn't actually being canceled.

It's only being moved nearly 2,000 miles away across international borders, of course. To put this in perspective, moving the game from Mexico City to LA is more than a 200-mile difference than if the game were moved from LA to Kansas City.

If you're one of the thousands of fans that purchased a ticket for a game in Mexico City and will not be refunded for your ticket, we feel for you this morning.
