ATLANTA, GA. -- The Southeastern Conference says it will announce , on its Website, "ASAP," its refund policy involving several games scrambled by violent weather and affecting multiple teams, including the University of Kentucky Wildcats.
A recording on the SEC Website, SECsports.com, says the decision on refunds for games that had to be rescheduled and relocated to a smaller venue, leaving a lot of fans out, will be posted as soon as possible. The "sessions" involved at this point are #4, #5 and #6, which includes the matchup between U. K. and Ga. The "Cats" lost in overtime by a score of 60 to 56. ( Ticket Office Toll-Free 1-800-732-4849)
The game was played in Georgia Tech's Alexander Memorial Coliseum with a seating capacity of 9100, much smaller than the Georgia Dome which was damaged by a tornado Friday night. Storm damage prompted tournament officials to scramble, find another venue, and reschedule the games.
The SEC decided to restrict attendance to players' families, cheerleaders, bands and those with "working credentials." Many U.K. fans expressed extreme displeasure over being left out of what became a pivotal game for The Cats.
The recording says the SEC office's regular hours are 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. (CDT).
