TRENTON, N.J. (CBS) — A Montgomery County, Pa.-based law firm has filed a lawsuit in New Jersey Superior Court in Trenton on behalf of a class of Philadelphia Flyers season ticketholders related to this season’s NHL “Winter Classic” ice hockey game at Citizens Bank Park (see game story).

The lawsuit alleges that Comcast-Spectacor — owner of the Flyers team — misled season ticketholders regarding the sales of tickets to the January 2nd outdoor game.

According to the complaint, the Winter Classic regular season game against the New York Rangers was excluded from the season ticket package after ticketholders already paid for each of the 44 preseason and regular season games.

“So, in order to get back in the door to see this game, you had to buy a package of three total tickets and pay processing charges, all of which should not have been paid at all — it should have been included,” says attorney Evan Barenbaum with the Jenkintown-based firm of Stern and Eisenberg.

He explains that season ticketholders were required to buy tickets to an alumni game and a minor league hockey game.

The lawsuit claims they were entitled to the Winter Classic ticket as part of their agreement with the team and should not have been required to repurchase the ticket.

Comcast-Spectacor did not immediately respond to a request for a comment on the lawsuit.
