After conversations today with both Hasbro Games and ESPN, the NSA can confirm the following information:
We need to emphasize that the contracts have not been signed as of today, although we expect them to be finalized within two weeks. As before, we'd caution anyone against purchasing tickets that are either nonrefundable or cannot be applied to another date. We will confirm the signed contracts the day it happens.
