LSU Announces No Tailgating, Tiger Stadium Capacity Restrictions, and More
LSU has just made some big announcements concerning changes to the 2020 football season.
The LSU athletic department announced today (09/09/20) that there will no tailgating for the 2020 football season at Tiger Stadium according to WBRZ.com.
LSUsports.net says "Among numerous safety measures, fans will be required to wear face masks on campus and in Tiger Stadium, tailgating on campus will not be permitted and physical distancing will be mandatory. Tailgating and tailgate setups, including tents, trailers, outdoor cooking, generators, and communal food and beverage areas will not be permitted on campus."
In addition to these precautionary restrictions, capacity will be restricted to 25% at Tiger Stadium.
This means that crowds at LSU home games could be somewhere around 25,000.
Fans are encouraged to enjoy the games at home to minimize the number of people on the LSU campus
Gov. John Bel Edwards via LSUsports.net -
"This plan focuses on the health and safety of all those attending LSU football games, from the fans to the team to the workers. By reducing the capacity and taking a year off from tailgating, which puts LSU in line with other SEC schools, the plan allows for fans to be socially distanced in Death Valley. I encourage the Tiger faithful to adhere to these guidelines and to act responsibly, as there is still a lot of COVID in Louisiana. We will continue to monitor our case counts, test positivity rate, and hospitalizations and make adjustments as necessary."
