Tiger Stadium set to open for the 2020 season at 25% capacity; everything you need to know

College football is right around the corner, but gamedays are going to look very different this year. LSU officials announced a Tiger Stadium seating capacity of just 25% for the 2020 season. Other changes include face masks, social distancing and no tailgating on campus.

To enforce these gameday policies, officials have prohibited many items around campus. The list of prohibited items includes

  • Trailers
  • Tents/canopies/Structures of any kind
  • Displays – lights, decorations, etc.
  • Bars and any communal food/beverage
  • Coolers
  • Catering or Food Sales
  • Tables and Chairs
  • Grills or any portable cooking mechanism
  • Generators
  • Fencing/Flooring
  • Televisions
  • Portable Audio Systems (setups and outside of vehicles)

Officials also stated all campus buildings and bathrooms will be closed, and a limited number of porta-potties will be available.

Fans should also note changes to tickets. Season ticket holders have the option to opt out of the 2020 season by filling out a form through the LSU Ticket Office. The deadline to do so is Friday, Sept. 11. Those who wish to keep their season tickets will have a reduced amount to allow others to attend games.

No single-game tickets will be available this season. Students are expected to receive emails on how ticket distributions will work for the upcoming season.

Parking will also be vastly different this season. All lots across campus, including free ones, will require parking permits. Each lot will open four hours before kickoff. Ticket holder will be contacted by the LSU Ticket Office regarding parking permits.
