Bulverde man sues South Africa’s Sports Hall of Fame, HEB, after failed NFL auction

A Bulverde man is suing HEB and the San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame after he won an online NFL auction that he said was a “disaster”, according to Express-News. The lawsuit, filed December 20, 2022, in San Antonio District Court alleges violations of the Texas Fraudulent Trade Practices Act.

Eduardo Solis reportedly won tickets to the Super Bowl, Pro Bowl and Pro Football Hall of Fame games, as well as the induction ceremony, by bidding $12,000 at the San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame Tribute auction hosted by the nonprofit San Antonio Sports. The event presented by HEB the same year, originally scheduled for March 28, 2020, went virtual as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The auction is the organizations largest fundraiser each year to support its free youth sports and community health initiatives.

“He was promised a thrilling, thrilling football experience, and he got embarrassment, disappointing broken commitments, and shocking disregard for his feelings or the expense (he and his wife) incurred… to travel to the Pro Bowl and Super Bowl.” — Solis. the complaint says.

The “NFL Hall of Fame Dream Package” won by Solis included tickets to Pro Football Hall of Fame Week of Fame in August 2020, as well as two tickets to Pro Bowl 2021 and Super Bowl LV. But just as COVID-19 thwarted the tribute, the pandemic has caused the cancellation of the Hall of Fame and Pro Bowl games in Las Vegas.
