(FORT WAYNE) - Several fans who traveled to Canton, Ohio for the Hall of Fame game that was canceled on Sunday night because of poor field conditions are planning to sue the NFL and the hall.

Avenatti said his clients are from a variety of states, including Wisconsin and Indiana, who came to see the Packers play the Colts.

Attorney Michael Avenatti, who represented ticket holders for the 2011 Super Bowl who wound up without seats in Dallas, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that no fewer than 20 individuals have approached him about a class-action lawsuit. He said his firm has fielded another 10 calls about seeking further reimbursements, including travel expenses.

The game was canceled after paint congealed and hardened on portions of the field at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium.
