LSU is proposing a stadium expansion of approximately 60 suites, 3,000 club seats, and 1,500 general population seats to be entirely funded privately.
The new expansion would take place in the south end zone with the general public seats located above the club and suite level seating. Standing room only tickets will also be made available when the new structure opens, and should bring the total capacity in Death Valley to around 100,000 screaming fans.
"It is important to always have an eye on the future and this investment in our facilities is critical for the future of LSU Athletics. When things are going well, you can move forward or you can fall behind. We are choosing to advance the athletics program so that it can remain a viable and successful part of the mission of our university." Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Joe Alleva stated.
The expansion will allow for two video boards to be added in the southwest and southeast corners of the stadium, replacing the current video board sitting on the south bowl.
If the project is approved, construction would begin in the fall and be completed in the summer of 2014.
