LSU to propose expansion of Tiger Stadium

By Tom Fornelli | College Football Writer

LSU's Tiger Stadium is one of the bigger football stadiums in the country, with its current capacity listed at 92,542. Though if the athletic department gets its way, that number will soon be expanding.

The school will make a proposal to the LSU Board of Supervisors about expanding the stadium in the south end zone.

“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,” said LSU Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics, Joe Alleva in a release. “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.”

If approved, the expansion would include the addition of 60 suites, 3,000 club seats and 1,500 public seats in the south end zone, which would bring the stadium's capacity to 100,000. The construction would begin this fall with completion slated for the summer of 2014.
