The non-refundable portion of the TST service fee is USD18 for Category 3 series, USD30 for Category 2 series and USD45 for Category 1 series.
happens if my team gets eliminated in the First Round?
When applying for tickets, you have a number of choices to make. If you wish only to watch the team of your choice play, and if and when they are eliminated, you wish to go home, then you should apply for the Conditional Ticket series. If, on the other hand, you wish to stay and watch the tournament later stages, then you should apply for a Fixed Ticket series.
does this mean?
If you apply for a TST 4, TST 5, TST 6, or TST 7(i.e., First Round plus later stages) on a Conditional Ticket basis, and your team does not progress to all the stages covered by your Conditional TST series, you will be entitled to a refund of the TST price (including the TST service fee**) of those tickets that you purchased for matches in which your team does not participate. A standard USD 10 per Conditional TST Series will be deducted from the refund. Example - if you purchase a Conditional TST 4 series, category 1 for your team, they qualify for the Finals but are eliminated after the three First Round matches, you will receive a refund of USD 238 (USD 225 plus USD23 (10%**) less USD10). If, on the other hand, you apply for a TST 4, TST 5, TST 6, or TST 7 (i.e. First Round plus later stages) on a Fixed Ticket basis, and your team gets eliminated before the Final you will be guaranteed a ticket to see the winner of your teams Group, if your team is eliminated in the First Round, or the winner of your teams later stage match in subsequent rounds.
