Ticket Refund Policy Announced for Atlanta's SEC Tournament

ATLANTA (AP) - The Southeastern Conference will issue refunds to fans who bought tickets through authorized locations for games in the SEC basketball tournament that were affected by the tornado that hit the Georgia Dome.

Games from sessions 4, 5 and 6 were moved to Alexander Memorial Coliseum on the Georgia Tech campus after the March 14th tornado damaged the Georgia Dome.

Tickets were not honored at the smaller Alexander Memorial Coliseum.

Admission was listed to a limited number of passes given to each team for the final three sessions.

Fans can receive a refund based on the following conditions:

- The ticket was purchased through the SEC office, the Georgia Dome, or one of the 12 SEC schools.

- The original ticket holder mails the tickets to the place where they were purchased, postmarked by April 18th. Session 4 tickets could be torn, since only the last game of the session was postponed by the storm.

Only the original ticket holder may receive the refund.

Refunds will be issued by the same method they were purchased. The maximum refund is $125, or $45 for each of the three sessions.

Details of the refund policy, and addresses for the SEC and each of the 12 schools, can be found on the Internet at www.SECsports.com.
