The team will begin taking deposits for season tickets again today. Mini-plans -- likely to be packages of eight to 10 games -- will go on sale in January. Single-game tickets will be available in February.

If I put down a deposit for a season ticket, when will I find out what seat I have?

The team will send out invoices to each person who put down a deposit shortly after Jan. 1. The invoice will include the exact location of each seat, and will provide a 10-day window for fans to pay the balance on their account.

If I asked for a refund of my season ticket deposit, what should I do?

The team will begin contacting those fans who asked to have their $300 deposits returned to see if they're still interested in season tickets. The club said it had received about 16,000 deposits for tickets before the team's operations were shut down a week ago.
