LSU On Pace For Record Season-Ticket Sales Following Tiger Stadium Addition
The LSU football program expects to "distribute a record 73,000-plus season tickets this year, and the school has already sold more than 30,000 tickets to the season-opening game" against Wisconsin at NRG Stadium, according to Ross Dellenger of the Baton Rouge ADVOCATE. The school’s "season-ticket record is 68,722, set last year." LSU Associate AD/Ticket Sales Brian Broussard said that LSU has a 98% renewal rate on season tickets for this season and "has 4,000-5,000 on a wait list, people who will likely find seats because of the new addition to Tiger Stadium." The south end zone addition "will create 5,000-plus season tickets in the suite and club levels." Broussard said that the process for season-ticket holders "to relocate" begins today and will last a few weeks. The $80M addition to Tiger Stadium "is nearly sold out." Broussard expects the "few remaining open tickets in the suite and club levels to be sold soon." He added that the suite level will "hold 2,000, while the club level will hold between 3,000 and 4,000." LSU will "move 1,500 visitor seats from the lower bowl in the south end zone to the new addition." The rest of the visitors "will remain in the east side upper deck (about 4,000) and the lower bowl (about 2,000)" (Baton Rouge ADVOCATE, 6/17).
