MANDATORY ARBITRATION AGREEMENT & CLASS ACTION WAIVER ("ARBITRATION AGREEMENT")
The Club cares deeply about maintaining good relationships with fans. If you have a problem with your ticket and/or those of any Accompanying Party or the Event, a telephone call to customer service may resolve the matter quickly and amicably. Any dispute not resolved informally must be resolved in accordance with this Arbitration Agreement.
Unless prohibited by federal law, Holder and the Club agrees to arbitrate any and all claims and disputes relating in any way to Holder's purchase or use of this ticket and/or those of any Accompanying Party, Holder's and/or any Accompanying Party’s participation in, attendance at, and/or observation of the Event, the Agreement, and any related dealings between them, including, without limitation, claims of bodily injury or property damage arising out of Holder's and/or Minor(s)' attendance at and/or participation in the Event ("Arbitration Claims"), except for Arbitration Claims concerning the validity, scope or enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement, through BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION. This Arbitration Agreement involves interstate commerce and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16 ("FAA"), and not by state law.
In any Arbitration Claim to be resolved by arbitration, neither Holder nor the Club will be able to have a court or jury trial or participate in a class action or class arbitration. Other rights that Holder and the Club would have in court will not be available or will be more limited in arbitration, including the right to appeal. Holder and the Club each understand and agree that by requiring each other to resolve all disputes through individual arbitration, EACH IS WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A COURT OR JURY TRIAL. ALL DISPUTES SHALL BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, AND NOT AS A CLASS ACTION, REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY SIMILAR PROCEEDING. The arbitrator(s) may not consolidate the claims of multiple parties.
Arbitrations shall be administered by JAMS in accordance with its then-existing commercial arbitration rules. Information about arbitration, arbitration procedures and fees may be obtained from JAMS by calling (800) 352-5267 or visiting www.jamsadr.com. If JAMS is unable or unwilling to arbitrate a dispute, then the dispute may be referred to any other arbitration organization or arbitrator the parties both agree upon in writing or that is appointed pursuant to section 5 of the FAA. The arbitration shall take place in Seattle, Washington. The arbitration shall be presided over by a single arbitrator, who shall be selected in accordance with the rules that, as specified above, shall govern the arbitration. The arbitrator shall be authorized to award any relief that would have been available in court, provided that the arbitrator's authority is limited to Holder and the Club alone, except as otherwise specifically stated herein. No arbitration decision will have any preclusive effect as to non-parties. The arbitrator's decision shall be final and binding. The parties agree that this Arbitration Agreement extends to any other parties involved in any Arbitration Claims, including, but not limited to, Minor(s) and the Released Parties. This Arbitration Agreement shall take precedence over the rules of the arbitration organization or arbitrator in the event of any conflict.
The Club will be responsible for paying all arbitration fees other than the amount of filing fees Holder would have incurred in the state or federal court where the Event took place, whichever is less. Notwithstanding any other provision herein, Holder and the Club may seek relief in a small claims court for Arbitration Claims within its jurisdiction. In addition, Holder and the Club each may exercise any lawful rights to seek provisional remedies or self-help, without waiving the right to arbitrate by doing so. Notwithstanding any other provision of the Agreement, if the foregoing class action waiver and prohibition against class arbitration is determined to be invalid or unenforceable, then this entire Arbitration Agreement shall be void. If any portion of this Arbitration Agreement other than the class action waiver and prohibition against class arbitration is deemed invalid or unenforceable, it shall not invalidate the remaining portions of this Arbitration Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of the Agreement, the conclusion of the Event, and/or the bankruptcy or insolvency of a party (to the extent permitted by applicable law).
