I understand my Gladiators tickets (also referred to as “Rights”) will be delivered via Flash Seats.  The Flash Seats Terms and Conditions are incorporated by reference and made a part of this Agreement, and specifically include, but are not limited to, the following:

You are prohibited from selling or offering for sale your Right(s) through another publicly available marketplace, whether or not electronic or accessible through the Internet.  Any use of the Flash Seats  website to facilitate the sale of Right(s) through another publicly available marketplace may result in any or all of the following: (i) cancellation of the transfer or sale transaction conducted on our website; (ii) a charge of our sales fee (defined below), calculated with respect to the full sales price of such Right(s) sold or transferred, assessed against the seller/transferor of such Right(s) (such sales fee will be charged to the credit card on file for the seller/transferor twenty-four (24) hours after we provide notice of the assessment of such charge to such person via email); (iii) revocation of the seller/transferor’s rights to use our website and any or all of our other services; and (iv) revocation of such sold or transferred Right(s) by the event/venue.  You may access the Flash Seats Terms and Conditions at

Rights Reserved.  These Standard Terms and Conditions, collectively with the above Flash Seats Terms and Conditions and Recurring Payment Authorization, shall constitute your Membership Agreement (“Agreement”).  The Cleveland Gladiators may, in its sole discretion, upon written notice to you, amend, update, or modify policies, prices, procedures, and/or other terms or conditions relative to your Membership, including the Agreement.  Such notice may be delivered to you by email, first class mail, or posted on

Account Ownership.  Membership accounts and/or account numbers are not transferable from one person or entity to another.  The owner name under which an account has been purchased may not be changed or assigned, with the following exceptions: Legal name change, change in marital status, change in business name, dissolution of business, sale of business, or death of account holder.  All requests for account information changes must be submitted in writing.

Your Membership is a Revocable License.  Cleveland Gladiators Football Alliance Memberships include season tickets, which are owned by the Cleveland Gladiators.  Your Membership (and each included ticket therefor) is a revocable license issued by the Cleveland Gladiators to the individual or corporate entity name that appears on the account of record.  The Cleveland Gladiators may, at any time and in its sole discretion, upon written notification to you, terminate your Membership, and, in the event the Cleveland Gladiators do so terminate this Agreement for any reason other than your breach, the Cleveland Gladiators will refund any pro rata portion of your Membership dues as of the date of such termination.  Breach of any of the terms on page 1 or page 2 of this Agreement (or in the case of Flash Seats’ delivery, the seat locator), shall entitle the Cleveland Gladiators to all available legal remedies, including but not limited to revocation or cancellation of your Membership, with no further compensation or refund.  Upon such cancellation or revocation by the Cleveland Gladiators resulting from your breach, you shall forfeit any rights to playoff ticket purchase opportunities.

All Sales are Final.  No Refunds or Exchanges.   Payments must be timely made on or before the agreed upon payment plan dates.  Delivery of tickets shall be made in March or April prior to the applicable football season, and only if the Cleveland Gladiators have first received full payment of your annual Membership dues or if your account is otherwise current on all payments.  If you are on an installment plan, in the event you fail to timely make any required payments, the Cleveland Gladiators may (a) withhold your tickets for upcoming events until the necessary payments are made and your account is in good standing, and/or (b) terminate your Membership, with any payments made prior to the termination date forfeited by you.

Playoffs.  Playoff game tickets that are not included in your Membership can be purchased at an additional cost above and beyond your annual Membership dues.  If applicable, upon receipt of pricing information for such playoff tickets from the Cleveland Gladiators, you may, upon written notice to the Cleveland Gladiators, elect to decline such playoff tickets by the stated deadline date, incur no charges, and have no change to your Membership status.  If you opt-out or elect to not renew your Membership prior to the playoffs for such Membership Year, you will receive a one-time right of first refusal to purchase tickets to your seats for such playoff game(s), but will not receive Membership pricing.

Restrictions.  You agree not to transmit, distribute, or sell (or aid in transmitting, distributing or selling), in any media any description, account, picture, video, audio or other form of reproduction of any Cleveland Gladiators game or any surrounding activities for which your ticket is issued.   Your ticket(s) may not be used for any form of commercial or trade purposes, including, but not limited to, the sale of all or substantially all of your season tickets (including via Flash Seats) for non-personal, business use (whether or not for profit), advertising, promotions, contests or sweepstakes, without the express written consent of the Cleveland Gladiators and the Arena Football League (“AFL”).

Assumption of Risk/Release of Liability.  You or the holder of the ticket to any game or event voluntarily assume all risk and danger of personal injury (including death) and all hazards arising from, or related in any way to, the game (including, but not limited to, injuries caused by players, fans, footballs or other objects) whether occurring prior to, during or after the game, however caused and whether by negligence or otherwise.   You and your guests agree that the Cleveland Gladiators, AFL, their affiliates, and their respective owners, officers, directors, managers, employees, contractors, agents, and representatives are not liable for any injuries from such causes.
