LSU offers first preview of Tiger Stadium expansion
LSU is currently expanding Tiger Stadium adding a new upper deck in the south end zone with additional luxury suites and closing off the south end of the stadium.
The changes will bring the stadium’s seating capacity over 100,000.
The school released a picture of what the final renovations should look on Monday afternoon, giving fans a 3D preview of what is to come.
Tiger Stadium was last renovated in 2000 with an expansion on the east side of the stadium that added over 11,000 new seats, bringing the official seating capacity to 91,600.
In 2004, the west side of the stadium was renovated to add luxury boxes. More club seats were added just a few years ago, but this expansion will make Tiger Stadium the third stadium in the SEC with a capacity over 100,000, joining Tennessee and Alabama.
Texas A&M is underway on renovations to Kyle Field that are expected to increase the seating capacity over 100,00 as well.
