With the 2020 LSU Football season opener in Death Valley quickly approaching in less than three weeks, many fans were wondering when further details concerning fan attendance would be announced. Governor John Bel Edwards said today that he is leaning toward a 25,000 fan limit in Tiger Stadium for the 2020 season.
Tiger Stadium usually boasts an occupancy of 102,321.
Edwards said he is looking at a capacity similar to other SEC schools. The SEC recently announced that individual schools may determine the number of guests permitted to attend "in accordance with applicable state and local guidelines, policies and/or regulations."
Louisiana currently sits at phase 2, which limits gatherings of over 50 people to slow the spread of COVID-19. Edwards stated today that an update concerning whether or not Louisiana will be able to move to phase 3 will come later this week..
It is likely that this decision will impact the number of fans allowed into Tiger Stadium.
LSU season ticket-holders received the options to keep their tickets, donate the ticket value or opt out of the 2020 season last month. Roughly 50 percent of season ticket holders chose to keep their tickets.
Many LSU students are still anxious to know if they will receive the opportunity to purchase tickets for 2020 football games. Students have not yet received any information regarding tickets to any games, including the Sept. 26 opener against Mississippi State.
