Funding For Tiger Stadium Expansion Gets Final Approval

Final approval needed for LSU to begin a planned expansion to Tiger Stadium was granted by a state financing panel Thursday. The plan will add new seats to the stadium’s south end zone.

 

The Bond Commission passed, without objection, a $75 million borrowing plan for the expansion that will push Tiger Stadium’s capacity to nearly 100,000. Construction is to begin this fall with completion scheduled for the summer of 2014.   It’s part of a plan that also includes other athletic facility projects, including new tennis courts, a gymnastics practice center and locker rooms for the track and field teams.

The stadium plan includes adding 60 suites, approximately 3,000 club seats and general seating for up to another 1,500. Tiger Stadium’s current listed seating capacity is 92,542.  After the expansion, Tennessee and Alabama will be the only SEC
