LSU sells out season tickets for 11th straight year

Les Miles

A bigger stadium capacity was likely to lead to a record number of season tickets sold, and LSU did not disappoint. The school announced Friday all season tickets for the 2014 season have been sold. In all, LSU set a school record with 74,350 season tickets being sold. It is the 11th straight season LSU has sold out its season tickets.

“We have sold every season ticket that we have to offer,” LSU associate athletic director for ticket operations Brian Broussard said in a statement released by LSU Friday afternoon. “Our season ticket demand continues to be very strong and with the additional seats in the south endzone expansion, we were able to offer more season tickets this year and our fans bought them all.”

Just last month LSU announced a new stadium capacity for Tiger Stadium, moving LSU just past Alabama in the stadium capacity pecking order. After undergoing expansion in the south endzone, the stadium capacity for Tiger Stadium has increased to 102,321. The expansion helped add roughly 6,000 more season tickets to sell to fans, according to the statement released by LSU.

The home slate for LSU is one of the least attractive home schedules but it does include a home date against Alabama in November and division games against Ole Miss and Mississippi State (both Mississippi schools have a possibility of being fun to watch this season). Other notable games against defending SEC champion Auburn, Florida, Arkansas and Texas A&M will all be played on the road. LSU’s big non-conference match-up with Wisconsin will actually be played in Houston as well. Fans with tickets to LSU home games this season will also be treated to games against Sam Houston State, Louisiana-Monroe, New Mexico State, and Kentucky in SEC play.

Also this offseason, LSU’s Tiger Stadium was voted the best stadium in college football. Who wouldn’t want to secure a season ticket to Tiger Stadium?

    I applaud #southernpatroits and all the fans at LSU for their loyalty and support. I’d love to have a chance to go to a Saturday night game there. I wouldn’t even care who they were playing. I’d just like to experience that environment first-hand. Has to be incredible.

    Wait, you can get season tickets to big-time college football? Not in Ohio you can’t. :(

    There is no big-time college football played in Ohio.

    I dunno. I’d be wondering why it took so long to sell out the season tickets at LSU. Granted, I don’t know how they sell them, but, still…

    Yeah…but you live in Ohio. What a dump.

    Why do innocuous postings like the above degenerate into attacks on entire States and teams? What ever happened to good sportsmanship? Both tOSU and LSU should be proud of their team’s performance and attendance.
    Since 1949, Ohio State has never been lower than fourth nationally in average home attendance. This includes a 14 year streak leading the nation in total attendance. LSU expanded their stadium so that it is one of the largest in the country and they still sell out. Both teams should be proud of their fan base.
    My job required extensive travel in both Ohio and Louisiana. Both States have some rough areas and some very nice areas. I would suggest birdcen visit Ohio, especially Columbus, before calling the State a dump.

    @brownsmakemecrazy
    You are a prolific poster on CFT. It seems that all of your postings are negative. Maybe you should abide by the old adage that if you don’t have anything nice to say then don’t say anything.

    Except for Alabama and maybe Ole Miss I wouldn’t pay a dime to watch a big time college football program like LSU play Sam Houston State, Louisiana-Monroe, New Mexico State, and Kentucky.
