USA Softball Cancels "Stand Beside Her" Tour
Dear ticket holder and USA Softball fan,
USA Softball has announced the cancellation of all originally scheduled 2020 stops on the “Stand Beside Her” tour, presented by Major League Baseball (MLB), due to the COVID-19 public health emergency.
As a host of a “Stand Beside Her” tour stop, that means that the originally scheduled exhibition contests featuring the 2020 U.S. Olympic Softball Team in East Lansing, MI has been canceled.
We understand the disappointment that may come with this decision as we have waited 12 years to see the sport of softball return to the Olympic stage and have a U.S. Olympic Softball Team come to our city. Although the wait for our sport’s return to the Olympic Games has been delayed a bit longer, we can’t wait to watch these resilient athletes get back on the field when the day finally comes.
Unfortunately, there are still a lot of moving pieces and discussions to be had before we can determine if we will be able to bring the U.S. Olympic Softball Team back to East Lansing. With the Tokyo Olympic Games now scheduled for July 23-August 8, 2021, that helps us to determine the possibility to potentially host the U.S. Olympic Softball Team at a future date.
We are beginning to issue refunds on purchased tickets. If you purchased online through Go Fan, you will be automatically refunded. If you purchased group tickets, we will be reaching out to those groups individually.
We thank you for your support of the USA Softball Women’s National Team, and we look forward to providing more answers when available.
