The Pro Football Hall of Fame is offering refunds to fans who bought tickets to its canceled preseason game this month.
 
The hall announced Thursday that it will reimburse fans for the face value of their tickets, fees and one-night hotel accommodations.
 
It was forced to cancel the Aug. 7 game between Green Bay and Indianapolis after paint congealed and hardened on parts of the field at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton.
 
At least four fans sued the NFL in federal court in northern Ohio over the canceled game.
 
An attorney who brought the lawsuit says the hall's initial plan to only refund ticket prices was too little.
 
The hall of fame says it also will offer affected fans four tickets to its museum.
 
For more information on the refund policy, you can go to the Pro Football Hall of Fame website  or you can also get an information packet on the  Reimbursement Plan.

The Packers bad luck in Hall of Fame Games continues.

Green Bay's first preseason game with the Colts was canceled due to poor field conditions in Canton, Ohio.

The Hall of Fame ceremony was held on the surface Saturday night which may have caused the issue with the artificial turf surface.

In four previous Hall of Fame games that the Packers have participated, two were called early due to weather (1980, 2003).
