AUBURN (AL.com) Auburn is offering full refunds for men's basketball season tickets if fans no longer want them in light of the federal charges against assistant coach Chuck Person.
An Auburn ticket office representative said "full refunds" are available to season ticket holders if they request.
A spokeswoman said Auburn "had a few people request refunds and those were granted," as of Wednesday morning but that increased to an "estimated 30" as of 2:30 p.m.
On Monday, Auburn announced it sold out of its season ticket allotment for the fourth straight year and single-game tickets are going on sale Thursday.
On Tuesday, Person was among 10 people arrested on federal charges as a result of a joint investigation by the FBI and U.S. Attorney's office into corruption college basketball. Person, who is Auburn suspended without pay, faces six charges for bribery, fraud and conspiracy.
The federal complaint against Person, who was released from custody after a hearing in federal court in Birmingham on Tuesday and ordered to appear in federal court in New York on Oct. 10, states he received approximately $91,500 in bribes over 10 months and gave a total of $18,500 to the mothers of two of Auburn's basketball players.
Auburn has not confirmed the identities of those players or clarified their eligibility for the upcoming season.
Auburn opens the 2017-18 season against Norfolk State on Nov. 10.
