LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - After all the sanctions and scandals, UofL began quietly refunding money to season-ticket holders who expressed their frustration with the basketball program.
WAVE 3 news reports that starting in October, the University was giving refunds to complaining season ticket holders and addressing specific requests on an individual basis.
In the end, the university refunded 127 individuals and several companies for a total of 315 season tickets.
Each season ticket costs $1,031 and most require a mandatory contribution to the University ranging from $250 to $2,500 depending on the location of the seats. Despite the refunds, UofL reports that overall ticket sales for men's basketball remain steady.
UofL Men's Basketball sold 17,964 season tickets so far this year, very close to the 18,003 sold two years ago. But this year is about 11 hundred short of last year’s total of 19,074 sold.
Season tickets in the lower level of the KFC Yum! Center are sold out but some remain available in most upper-level sections.
