Spartan+ Ticket Protection

Spartan+ Ticket Protection is a benefit of Spartan+ membership that allows members to commit to events with full confidence.

There are some things in this world that even Spartan grit and determination can’t overcome so we have created a program that means our members will not be stuck with a useless ticket to a canceled event.

As a Spartan+ member, if your event gets canceled or moved by Spartan, you may request a full refund of tickets, add-ons, and fees. It’s that simple.
