LSU releases refund policy for ASU tickets

LSU fans who hold tickets for the LSU-Arizona State game that was to be played in Tiger Stadium Saturday night will receive a refund for the cost of their tickets, and they have four options for assigning the refund.

Due to the impact of Hurricane Katrina, the LSU-Arizona State game was moved to Tempe, Arizona. Ticket holders had the opportunity to exchange their Tiger Stadium tickets for tickets to Sun Devil Stadium if they applied to the LSU Ticket Office by 2 p.m. Wednesday afternoon.

All other ticket holders will receive refunds in the amount of the cost of a single game ticket ($36) times the number of tickets they had purchased for the LSU-Arizona State game.

The first option for ticket holders is to apply their refund to a fund created to assist the many college students from South Louisiana who could use help in the aftermath of the hurricane. The LSU Foundation's Hurricane Katrina Student Relief Fund was created in response to the far-reaching damage caused by Hurricane Katrina, and all donations to this fund will directly assist students whose lives have been greatly affected by the storm.

The second option for ticket holders is to donate their refund to the LSU football program to help offset financial losses incurred by the LSU Athletics Department due to the loss of a home game in Tiger Stadium.

The third option for ticket holders is to apply their refund to their purchase of tickets for the 2006 season.

The fourth option for ticket holders is to receive a refund by cash, check or credit card. If the ticket was originally purchased by credit card, the card will be credited in the amount of the refund. If the ticket was originally purchased by cash or check, the refund will be made in the same manner.

Tradition Fund and Tiger Athletic Foundation donations are non-refundable contributions. Also, parking passes are sold on a season basis and not a game-to-game basis, and are not refundable. These items are not associated with a specific number of home games.

All ticket holders will receive notification by mail of their refund options and will be asked to respond to the LSU Athletics Ticket Office by November 15.
