LSU looks to increase football ticket prices next season; baseball in 2015




The LSU Athletic Department will soon ask the LSU Board of Supervisors to OK implementing a flexible pricing plan for home football games next season, as well as approve an increase to the so-called Tradition Fund for some football season ticket holders. Also, the athletic department is looking to raise the Tradition Fund for tickets and parking for the 2015 baseball season. "This is the first time since 2010 that we have sought a price increase for football," LSU Vice-Chancellor and Director of Athletics Joe Alleva says in a prepared statement. "This increase is necessary for us to stay competitive at the highest level of collegiate athletics, but also because of the rising costs of doing business on a daily basis." As for the flexible pricing plan, the athletic department is seeking approval to price tickets based on opponent and the date of the game. The proposal also calls for a 6% increase in season ticket prices as well as an increase to the Tradition Fund for reserved parking on campus for both cars and RVs. The proposed parking plan will see 49% of the parking prices remain at their current level. LSU hasn't proposed an increase in reserved parking on campus for football since 2007. —Staff report
