Tickets for preseason games are available here. The NFL currently expects and is planning for a full 2020 NFL season. However, if a game is cancelled and cannot be replayed, or is played under a condition that prevents fans from attending, automatic refunds for the full amount of the voided tickets will be provided by the NFL's licensed primary and most secondary channels within 30 days of the decision. If necessary, further details outlining the cancellation policy will be made available at the appropriate time.
