Trenton Titans Fans Can't Get Refunds

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

The Trenton Titans minor league ice hockey team closed up shop back in April, for reasons that have never been fully explained.

Now, season ticket holders have lost their team and their money.

The Titans are a Philadelphia Flyers affiliate in the East Coast Hockey League (ECHL). At least they were, until April 23rd, when the team and the ECHL announced that the Titans would cease operations.

For some fans, it was an expensive surprise!

The Trenton Titans now exist only on the Internet, where YouTube highlights bring back fond memories for uber-fans like Tom Malloy.

According to Malloy, "It was a great time. You know, the people there were really nice. It was very affordable, compared to going to, like, the Flyers game or any other pro sport. I mean, I always enjoyed myself and I was eager to jump on for next season."

So back in February, Tom took the plunge, signing up for two season ticket packages, a pair of seats to each of 36 games for the 2013-2014 season.

The price of fandom?

"792 bucks. That's a lot of money," said a disappointed Malloy. "It's more than my paycheck. It was my tax refund."

Then, in April, at the end of this regular season, the Titans ceased operations-- they shut down with little warning or explanation!

Tom, and others like him started asking about a refund of their season ticket money.

"For a while it was just a voicemail. 'Leave us a message if you want us to call you back.' Their Facebook, they're not responsive. And now if you call their phone number, it's just a dead phone line."

No one answered the door when FOX 29's Bruce Gordon went to the Titans' business office-- just across Broad Street from the Sun Center where the team played its games.

The folks there had no information. They noted the Titans were merely one of the arena's tenants.

I left a message with the team's former public relations director.

On Facebook, Titans season ticket holders are sounding off--if there's to be no team next year, they want their money back.

According to Malloy, "I don't hold personal grudges against anyone individually, but I don't want to allow myself to be a victim."

Titans' CEO and General Manager Rick Lisk was quoted back in early may urging patience, and promising season ticket refunds would be made.

More than a month later, still no word.
