With fewer seats to go around, 73 percent of LSU's season ticket holders opt out of 2020 season
UPDATE: LSU Athletics now says 73 percent of season ticket holders opted out of their 2020 tickets before last week's deadline. The number jumped up from 62 percent after the university outlined its updated ticketing plan, which will leave fewer tickets for each fan due to limited stadium capacity.
BATON ROUGE - Roughly half of LSU football's season ticket holders have opted out of their 2020 season tickets in exchange for a second option, a university spokesperson reports.
Rather than keeping the 2020-21 season tickets amid the coronavirus pandemic, roughly 50% of ticket holders have decided to request a refund, donate the money to the student-athletes scholarship fund, or roll over their tickets to the 2021 season, according to an LSU spokesperson.
The department sent an email to ticket holders last month offering these other options.
The university asked fans to submit their decision by Friday, Aug. 14.
