Football in 2020 will be like something we've never seen.

LSU has announced its preliminary plans for tickets and seating in Tiger Stadium for the 2020 season.

The SEC announced this week that all SEC teams will play only within the conference and that there will be no out of conference games played. It was also announced that the season will start on September 26, a few weeks later than initially scheduled.

The university says, "For ticket holders who choose to retain their 2020 tickets, ticket distribution and seat allocation will be finalized once capacity allowances and the updated football schedule are determined."

In addition to that LSU has released the following plans going into the season:

  • Season ticketholders and student tickets will be prioritized in the event of capacity restrictions. Ticket distribution plans will be finalized when capacity and schedule are determined.
  • The LSU Athletics Ticket Office will work to ensure season-ticket holders are placed as close to their current seats as possible in the event reseating is necessary. LSU Athletics is working with LSU Student Government officials to finalize plans for student ticket distribution.
  • Per Southeastern Conference policy for the 2020 football season, 500 tickets will be made available to visiting teams.

Now, for those season ticket holders who wish to opt-out for the 2020 season, the university has announced these procedures:

1. A Tax-Deductible Donation
Season ticket holders can choose to opt out of the 2020 season by donating their ticket costs and seat contributions to the Victory Fund at the Tiger Athletic Foundation. The Victory Fund has been set up to help support LSU Athletics during the financial challenges resulting from the spread of COVID-19. Choosing this tax-deductible option would also secure the opportunity to retain seats for 2021. LSU Athletics and TAF will provide more details on this offer in early August.

2. Rollover to 2021
As renewals for 2021 are scheduled to begin in November, ticketholders can opt-out of 2020 seats by applying their seat contribution and ticket costs to 2021. This will retain season-tickets for the 2021 season without having to process a new payment.

3. Request a Full Refund
Full refunds for ticket price and seat contributions can be requested from the ticket office via the form that will be sent next week. LSU ticketholders who request a full refund will be given the option to retain their seats for 2021 through a non-refundable deposit. Renewals for 2021 are scheduled to begin in November.
