Duke fan wants $827 refund after game’s postponement
DURHAM, N.C. — A man is asking for an $827 refund after the UNC/Duke basketball game was postponed on Wednesday.
WRAL reported that Duke fan Jack Markham is seeking compensation from Duke Athletics Director Kevin White in the amount of $827.95 for his efforts.
Markham also added that he cannot attend the make-up game on Thursday. The game was scheduled for last Wednesday at Dean E. Smith Center in Chapel Hill, but was postponed due to weather just three and a half hours beforehand.
“I don’t know really what to expect from the university, but I do want some recognition for the fans like myself that were betrayed by the lack of planning and effort,” Markham said
Markham is asking Duke for $162 for two tickets, $58 for lodging at the Red Roof Inn, $37.95 for the unused parking pass in the Smith-Bowles Lot and $170 in fuel costs for him and his friend to make the trip. He also wants $400 for “mental anguish,” which he said was difficult to calculate.
