Phase I: Completed
Prior to the 2010 football season we embarked on a campaign to raise funds to replace 429 windows in the north end of Tiger Stadium, the beginning of a beautification project to enhance North Stadium Drive and to Preserve Tiger Stadium. The Preservation of Tiger Stadium Window Project was a huge success and led to the creation of Phase II of the Preservation of Tiger Stadium Campaign.
In 2011, the Tiger Athletic Foundation and the LSU Athletic Department have begun working on Phase II of the Preservation of Tiger Stadium Campaign. Phase II will focus on the North Stadium and West Stadium Plazas. These two plaza areas will become a showcase of LSU Football that will highlight the greatness of Tigers past for all to see.
Tiger Stadium is a historical symbol of LSU Athletics and the more than 90,000 fans that fill the stands each time the Tigers take the field. That is exactly why the Tiger Athletic Foundation has focused on making Tiger Stadium the best stadium in all of college football. We are currently working on a project to enhance the exterior of Tiger Stadium. This will involve replacing gates, repaving the walk ways, adding monoliths and other significant improvements to the stadium’s visual appeal.
This update to Tiger Stadium will maintain the great look and feel of Tiger Stadium while preserving the facility in a way that allows it to continue to function for years to come. Please check back soon for a full detailed description of all that is planned for the Phase II project of the Preservation of Tiger Stadium campaign.
If you are interested in learning more about naming opportunities or more information on the project, please contact the TAF Development Department at 225-578-4823 or visit www.preservedeathvalley.org.
Phase III: South End Zone Addition
The South End Zone Addition will include approximately 60 suites, 3,000 club seats as well as about 1,500 general public seats above the current south end zone bowl. The South End Zone Addition will also debut two brand new HD corner scoreboards that will be among the best in the SEC. The project will be entirely privately funded through the Tiger Athletic Foundation. The project will also help us address some critical facility needs for olympic sports as we look to add an indoor tennis facility and new gymnastics practice facility.
Construction is slated to begin in the Fall of 2012, with no interruption to the current stadium for the 2012 season. Construction is slated to be complete for the start of the 2014 football season.
