LSU Football Season Tickets Sold Out for 11th Straight Year
We all know that LSU football is king in the state of Louisiana. It sure shows in ticket sales as season tickets are now sold out for the 11th consecutive year.
74,350 season tickets have been purchased for the 2014 home slate, according to associate athletic director for ticket operations Brian Broussard.
"We have sold every season ticket that we have to offer," Broussard said. "Our season ticket demand continues to be very strong and with the additional seats in the south end zone expansion, we were able to offer more season tickets this year and our fans bought them all."
The south end zone expansion increased the Tiger Stadium capacity to 102,321 and LSU was able to offer nearly 6,000 more season tickets this year.
LSU has sold out of season tickets every year dating back to the 2004 season when 66,232 season tickets were sold the year after the Tigers won the BCS National Championship.
If you want to go to a game, you still have a chance to buy single game tickets. Home games against Sam Houston State, UL-Monroe, Mississippi State, New Mexico State, Kentucky, and Ole Miss have tickets remaining. The Alabama game is sold out.
The Tigers open up the 2014 season on Saturday, Aug. 30 against the 14th-ranked Wisconsin Badgers in the Advocare Texas Kickoff in Houston, Texas. The game begins at 8pm and will be televised on ESPN.
